A Cat amongst the Turtles
Seven blissfully calm, sunny days proved that Psycho Puss is not a cat that is always wild! Our family of 6 (2 grandparents, 2 parents and 2 kids) enjoyed a week on our roomy catamaran meandering from Hamilton to the various anchorages and bays around Hook, Whitsunday and Long Island. We spotted one whale, one shark and dozens of turtles and the odd rock wallaby when hiking inland. The highlight (as always) was Whitehaven Beach and we were pleasantly surprised by all the work the National Parks crew had done to spruce up the caves at Nara inlet and the walks at Cid Harbour. The snorkeling wasn't up to expectations with murky water and a lot of damaged colorless coral but with the water and air temps at only 22 it wasn't the main reason we came.  Evening sunsets toasted with Champagne and full moon evenings made the night time as special as the days and time rolled away. The boat was very well laid out with loads of head room and good sized beds but perhaps not quite enough seating around the outdoor and indoor tables. The sails were easy to operate as was the steering even for our young girls being trained by Captain Grandpa for their sea license. Graham provided an excellent briefing accompanied by good humour and we managed to remember (almost) everything he said (where was that converter switch....?). Overall a very special 3-Gen holiday that will be remembered forever.

Note from CCY - Visibility varies from location to location and is effected by weather, tidal flow and rain. Coral looses it's colour when viewed in overcast conditions or through water with a high level of suspended solids due to run off.
