Hello! Thank you for all your comments on my wedding photos. It feels like it was awhile ago now. Today I thought I would share some honeymoon photos. We went to Hamilton Island which is in the Whitsundays which is part of the Great Barrier Reef. So there are plenty of activities. Only problem is we went at a horrible time weather wise. We got one day of sunshine (on my birthday!) and maybe a half day of sunshine. The rest of the time it rained or was overcast. (like this whole week so far, but I'm really enjoying the rain).
But nonetheless we still have a lovely, relaxing time. The photos are sort of all over the place but pretty much shows a snippet of the week.
Our first day on the beach.
We went into the main town. This is the boat harbour. We went into town via golf buggy. It's cute because everyone drives golf buggies around the island. There aren't really any cars.
Fish and chips are so good when you are near the water. Always so fresh.
We had a visitor, a cockatoo. A lot of the natural wildlife were just hanging around.
On the beach. This day had a little bit of sunshine. So we hung out on the sun lounges and read our books.
This is at a public pool on the island. Our resort had it's own but we decided to explore. This is the day I got sun burnt. I forgot to put sunscreen on my front half. So stupid! I hardly ever get burnt because I always lather sunscreen.
This is the public pool. Over in that hut, it's a bar. They have stools in the water and you can sit and have a cocktail in the pool.
I stayed away because some of the people there were a rowdy bunch.
We ordered these chips and aioli sauce from the restaurant in the resort all the time. We always got room service which I just love! It was pouring down this day so we had chips and ordered some movies.
We played some mini golf too.
And I beat Jason! Whee!
This happened after mini golf and it was hot and sticky. We went for a swim and had a cocktail by the pool. Within minutes it started pouring down with rain. You can't see the mountains that are normally there.
This is the resort pool. It's an infinity pool which is great!
We had a dinner and cruise as part of our honeymoon package. I didn't bring any hair things with me so my hair is so messy all the time or that's why it's always tied back.
The night of the dinner and cruise it poured down with rain. That night there was a king tide and the next day the water was up so high.
Just a shot of us on our balcony.
At low tide there was this little island that you could walk to. A lot of people did so we checked it out.
There were all these tiny crabs and other little sea things. I actually hated walking in this area because of fear of stepping on some little crab.
Jason took a few shots of me wondering around the water. This is one of my favourites.
This is the day of my birthday! Yay for sun.
Looks so much better with sunshine. View while eating breakfast. We always ate outside.
Jason got me this little cupcake to be my birthday cake at breakfast. It was so cute and sweet. He said I needed some kind of cake for my birthday.
We used one of those paddle boats too. And we went on a Reef Ryder boat and we went jet skiing for my birthday. Those photos are on our disposable waterproof camera we bought.
In the late afternoon we had this sunset ride that was also part of our package. You can see my horrible bikini tan. I chose the day to get burnt to wear the bikini with straps.
It was such a beautiful day! It sucks that we never got to see a sunset on Hamilton. Everyone says it's amazing.
The day we left. Jason with his usual breakfast.
Photo from the plane. The water really is the most beautiful colour.
We really had a lovely time and would love to come back another time. And I want to get the photos from the waterproof camera so I can show jetskiing and the Reef Ryder boat. We did want to go snorkeling because we are on the Great Barrier Reef and it's what you do, but they said the water wasn't very clear and it would be a waste of money. We were going to also go on a boat with a glass bottom to check out the fish but again water was too murky for that.
Oh well next time we will. Have a wonderful rest of week. I'm off to the Sunshine Coast for 2 days. I have to get my dress fitted for my brother's wedding!
