This entry on the Whitsunday Islands is going to be primarily a pictorial. As I had previously mentioned in my Airlie Beach blog, as a backpacker, I’m not afforded too many luxuries.

The chef was a young guy named Pete. I asked him if he knew how to clean and do laundry, in addition to cooking. When he answered yes, I asked him to marry me, as he would make the perfect wife while I spent my Saturday and Sundays watching football.
