Magnetic Island… a little paradise

It’s 10am’ish and I’m sitting at a dining room table, looking out over the ocean, back towards Townsville. The sea is calm, the sun shines brightly. Both sea and sky are an exquisite blue and the sun is warming all.

What a delightful little spot this is…
Didn’t know what we were getting ourselves into when we booked it, but then that’s what makes up half the adventure when traveling, isn’t it?

We’ve not done much.
The beauty of a week like this is to STOP!
Actually taking the time out to do nothing is most important, and not done nearly often enough. Mind you, we have been writing and thinking and reading, but all in our own good time.

What we have done? Cuddled a koala, and a snake, and a red-tailed black cockatoo, and a blue-tongue lizard. Gorgeous photos to follow. We’ve walked, talked and bought. We’ve ate, drank and been merry!

We’ve spent time with friends, the Palmers. A delightful and most missed friendship, since we all live so far away from each other these days. Hopefully we will all get to rendezvous again in the not too distant future.

Heading back to Melbourne is not what we want to be doing right now, but alas, reality sets in way too soon. Back to the height of winter is not something we’re looking forward to, given we’ve been living in a balmy 25oC. Oh well…

Will we come back? you bet ya!
Until next time…
