We trekked on down to Airlie Beach today after getting a slow start out of Townsville. It was a beautiful, if somewhat long drive, and the Coral Sea Resort we are staying at is WONDERFUL! This is our anniversary present to stay here and it is really beautiful. We have a bay side suite with a lovely balcony overlooking all the sailboats that are harbored out here and it is so peaceful right now. We just got back from a delicious dinner at their restaurant—I had my new favorite–Coral Trout and Chris had some yummy chicken ravoili. We splurged on a chocolate tart and cappuccino for dessert and now Chris wants to crash at 8 pm!!! He has an early day tomorrow but gee whiz!!! We have the doors open to the balcony and I wish you could hear the water—it is so soothing and wonderful!!!
On the way down we saw a lot of cane trucks (will put a couple pictures in there to show some sights along the way) , possible parts coming through for the clarifier that collapsed right before we left America for Australia which we had to get off the road so the loads could come through, an interesting truck filled with people and dogs at the service station—the one had 7 dogs in the back so I am not sure what they were hunting, and some beautiful sights once we got to the resort. Tomorrow while Chris is at the Plain Creek mill I am going to walk into town and explore and hopefully he will get back early enough that we will be able to do some sightseeing before it gets dark. All in all a great day even if a little tiring!!!
