Fast Walkers Earn Extra Day

Derwent Hunter

Derwent Hunter

After leaving Bowen, we were a bit short on accommodation , we travelled back to Maria’s for one night walking extra klms, then onto Maria’s friend Lisa’s place, also doing extra klms so we eventually arrived in Airlie a day early after having picked up Glenda (from Switzland) at the Proserpine train station.

What a bonus!  After deliberating for some time we were able to agree on a one day sailing trip on the Derwent Hunter.  The weather wasn’t the best but luckily the trip wasn’t cancelled and we had a wonderful day sailing (mostly) around the islands, stopping twice for snorkelling . I ventured out the first time but was quickly back on board as I was freezing and really there wasnt a lot to see.  The others had a great time and it was exciting to discover that the captain and one of the crew knew who we were, they had a laminated poster of the walk and Bob Irwin’s proposed visit on board.
