The Arlie Beach experience: Abell Point marina.
What is it that makes this a place unique for us? I guess it's the way people do things: the fun events that bring people together. Back packers set the tone for "holiday-party time". The marina is over run each morning and evening with excited people getting on and off all sorts of vessels. If you haven't visited the Great Barrier Reef book yourself a holiday: there's plenty of ways to enjoy this stunning region.
Still waiting to be claimed after the latest cyclone.
Gecko flavoured ice cream.
Dreamers of the perfect 'Drumbeat'.
The 10,000 step, 1988 boardwalk.
Fish and chips had, $10 "all you can eat Chilli" digested, provisioning attended, (vacuumed and stowed), washing clean and dry, internet used, phone calls to family, water tanks full and fuel topped up and we are out in the islands again. This will be our last chance to visit the northern bays when the wind turns to SE. Then ST3 will be bow first heading south for the next chapter in our adventures.
