whitsunday on a thursday!

one thing i just could never really imagine was the pictures of the whitsundays i had seen in my earlier life. this beach called whitehaven beach which i only knew from tv commercials and magazines was the most beautiful beach i have ever seen! thought it would be a tourist trap and that beach does not really exist and its all photo shopped anyway,i finally witnessed its whole beauty in 3D today! its bluer,whiter,wider,bigger and prettier than any poster can possibly show! when our super cool guide showed us the view from the lookout hill inlet overlooking the gorgeous and utterly beautiful and mind-blowing whitehaven beach i was glad i had taken my sunglasses with me! the white of the silica sand,combined with the azur blue of the sky and the turquoise waters almost blindsided me! oh,my gosh! it was right in front of me,it was real and it was not airbrushed! i think i took like 100 pictures of just one angle lol. no wonder the whitehaven beach,being a part of the great barrier reef marine park is a world heritage area!
and than we were in beach heaven just walking around,swimming,snorkeling.
the creeks were full with stingrays waiting patiently for the high tide so they could feed on the crabs! of course we all had a close look at them and thalia couldnt get enough. meanwhile tosca was just happy splashing in the bath tub warm waters and chasing the poor hermit crabs and the little fishes…..
the whitsundays are a collection of island with whitsunday island being the center of it. it is believed that its name was given by captain cook who had traveled this area and discovered the islands on whitsunday. hence the name.
we had taken a rafting boat to reach the islands.
the boat was incredibly fast and the crew consisting of a ridiculously cool and friendly guide/skipper and the female captain. both of them in the beginning of their twenties only!since i have always rather been an underdog and light years away from being supercool,let alone cool,its funny and weird watching those youngsters handling things. i totally admire them! they are super cool,super friendly,super reliable and super strong! in fact i am in awe since the beginning of our trip as i have the feeling oz is managed only by youngsters! aah, to be young again…..
this time we were not in the mood of sailing. we wanted something fast. and this trip was just fantastic! the young skipper turned guide was an excellent source of information and on on our way back to the mainland he just turned on the music pretty loud and tosca who was just about throwing tantrums immediately started dancing in her seat and while thalia was sitting happy and relaxed the captain started screaming we should all hold tight now. and what happened than was incredible! she just drove insanely fast and overbalanced the boat !omg it was like sitting in a roller coaster hahaha everyone started screaming like crazy, us included and we all couldnt get enough! hahaha it was hilarious! that fast rocing boat rocked tosca directly into zzzland and she only woke up when we arrived at the marina.phew! i think the captain could read my mind….hahaha. when you are as young as the crew today one has so much courage and confidence! the older you get the more fearful one gets. well, at least i do…and it sucks big time lol.
happy and thankful to have seen something that beautiful, i am going to join the rest of my family to zzzland….
