Airlie Beach

Monday 3rd September, (Airlie Beach).

We ventured along one of the shorter walking tracks today, the shorter one due to Linda’s knee not being too good, that all adverts indicated good views, undisturbed being the words, of the island group. Once again we arrived at the lookout to find trees blocked half of the scenery. I seem to be knocking this area a little; it is probably without good reason, anybody else visiting the region with the same intentions as ours may have different ideas. I guess I just expected a little more.

The walk was not a waste as half way along the walk was Coral Beach, appropriately named, that was quite scenic and a different texture to what one would expect of a beach.

This is what is on the beach instead of the usual sand.

A 1.5 kilometre walk further on revealed the lookout, which did provide some scenic views, so the trip was worth it, for the exercise as well.

I collected my mail that Matt sent me from home today and am wondering how long normal mail would take to arrive from Tassie, as the mail I received today was sent on Tuesday last week by express post and only arrived today; that’s almost a week for express post.
