Day 263. Townsville

A magnetic charm...

Scarlett eagerly waiting to catch the ferry
6am! Yep, that's the time that Bec made us get up this morning so that we made the early ferry over to Magnetic Island. Bugger! But up we got, and off to catch the ferry we did. We caught the Fantasea Car Ferry across, and Scarlett was very excited as there were trucks and cars on 'our boat'. She loved the idea of 'going overseas' and exploring a tropical island.

Bec had organised a Mini Moke Californian as our mode of transport, as this was one of her 'Bucket List' items from the very start of our trip. Scarlett was a little disappointed at first, as she wanted one of the hot pink convertibles, but the more we drove around, the more she relaxed. By the end of the day she was again disappointed; but this time because we were handing the car back and leaving the island.

The power of the 'Moke' was amazing!
So we spent the day exploring the island, walking along sandy beaches, swimming, and horse riding. Well Scarlett was the one who went for a horse ride, and she thoroughly enjoyed it! Actually, I think it was the highlight of her day.

The weather was very hot and sticky (with the occasional shower), so we ended up calling it a day by mid-afternoon as it was getting to uncomfortable. We caught the ferry back to the mainland, and Scarlett was fast asleep in the car as we pulled out of the car park.

Umm..... Hi!

We took a slight detour on the way back to the van, as Scarlett really wants to go trick-or-treating this Halloween, and we didn't have a costume for her. We found a great little witch costume, and picked up some lollies - ready for the hoards of children that will probably descend on us on Halloween.
