The Whitsundays in May

We spent a week enjoying some beautiful spots in the Whitsundays.

When I was six years old, I had a friend in kindergarten called Dugald. We have remained friends over the years since, and his son John (30) has been visiting Australia with his partner Mackenzie. They are both actors in London. We took them for a mini-cruise around Whitsunday Island.

We also caught up with some other Seawind owners, David and Lynda Burke and their family. A very entertaining dinner together at Whitehaven Beach.

Here's the scoop: let's charge a load of back-packers a few hundred dollars each and take them out in a big wind and see how many get sea-sick!
