Magnetic Island to TownsvilleAugust 13, 2015 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 19 °C
Sunlight and the hush of the waves broke through the gaps in the beach hut walls. Drawing back the curtain the room became drenched in the sea view, which we watched from the white linen of our bed eating banana and peanut butter sandwiches. The sounds of Arty and Bakermat bounced off the a-frame ceiling, which gave the room the appearance of a chapel. Hallelujah magnetic mornings.
We strode back to the ferry terminal along the palm lined esplanade, snacking on juicy kiwis brought from a local roadside seller (ironically the kiwis were not local at all with 'product of New Zealand' stickers on them - at least it didn't say 'China').
On the ferry back to Townsville, gulls dive-bombed the waters to catch fish as we were ruffled by warm cross winds. Once off the boat we past through the peaceful marina and memorial gardens to park ourselves in sun kissed greenery.
