Day 266. Bowen to Airlie Beach

Another Tropical Oasis in Paradise....

This morning we woke to a another warm tropical morning, with clear blue skies and the sound of birds in the palm tree's. After Scarlett finished some school work, I took her up to the pool for an early morning swim/play, before we hit the road. It certainly cooled us both down...

The Big Mango
Just out of town, we came across 'The Big Mango', and stopped for obligatory photo's. Unfortunately its Sunday - which means not much is open in QLD - The Big Mango included; so we continued or journey south on the Bruce Hwy.

We stopped in at Proserpine and found a little gem of a shop called 'Colour Me Crazy'. This shop has to be seen to be believed! Its got every brick-a-brak imaginable; and Bec was in heaven...

Bec and Scarlett 'dreaming' at Colour Me Crazy
She commented that she was disappointed as this shop is to far away from Sydney, as she would deck out our whole new home with the items this shop has to offer. the only thing we walked out with was a jar of 'Fairy Dust' for Scarlett.

We pulled into Airlie Beach at midday, and checked straight into the Big 4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort. We were surprised to run straight into a couple of families staying here that we have met on the road before, including the "Hardy's" who Scarlett was most happy to see again! It's definitely a small world...

This afternoon, Bec and Scarlett spent a couple of hours over at the pool enjoying the water slides, and I set up camp 'to the max'; as we plan on spending at least a good week here enjoying all the activities the park has to offer.

After swimming, Scarlett was amazed when a flock of ducks came 'waddling' up to our caravan for a hand out - which she eagerly obliged! The birds here are everywhere, and they are so tame that they literally took bread out of Scarlett's hand.

Now this is paradise....
