1 – 16th Oct: Hamilton Island

Yes, it’s true – we spent 16 days in the marina at Hamilton Island! The winds just blew and blew and blew! The first week was actually lots of fun. I mean it’s hard to get sympathy when you’re stuck on a tropical island as good as Hamilton!

We admired the island

Lovely to eventually see a beautiful resort giving lots of people lots of happiness.

We enjoyed the free entertainment.

We blew our diet.

There goes 10 days of healthy eating! From the Pub on the marina side.

We climbed to Passage Peak. No mean feat as those who have done it will attest.

We relaxed by the pool.

Listening to live music beside the swim-up Cocktail Bar. Yep, that's relaxing!

We didn’t have to go snorkelling to see coral and tiny fish.

There's also quite an advanced staghorn growing on the pontoon.
