An Island Like This

Posted by on

I thought there would be no better way to start our new blog than to create a photo diary of our recent trip to beautiful Hamilton Island. I have to admit, I wasn't sure what to expect, as we hadn't been out to the island since Cyclone Debbie. Now I'm wondering what took us so long!

The cruise across to Hamilton Island was full of excitement with pods of whales tail slapping in the distance. When we arrived to our Reef View Hotel room we were greeted with views like this! 

Low tide at Hamilton Island is always a great time to explore the beach and discover marine life hiding in the shallow pools. 

After a couple of late afternoon wines and enjoying the views, we almost forgot about sunset! Having scored the seventeenth floor, we raced to the end of the corridor and shot several images looking back towards Airlie Beach. What a view it was! 

When we've stayed on the island in the past, we usually awake at dawn and walk out onto the balcony and enjoy the sunrise. This time we decided to walk down to the beach. As I got closer to the water, I noticed this gorgeous tear drop shape between the tropical trees. I knew instantly I had to capture it! 

Come mid-morning the light hits the water in such a way that it turns crazy blue! 

Now as I said earlier, we hadn't been across to the island since Cyclone Debbie and had all intentions of hanging our snorkelling gear out to dry for quite some time yet. How wrong could we have been. This past week we saw some of the clearest waters since the storm and was extremely excited to see healthy fringing reef and turtles right off Catseye Beach. As locals, our hearts truely are singing again!

... snorkelling back to the beach we bumped into this little guy ... 

... as everyone heads across to One Tree Hill, we decide to enjoy the sunset at the Yacht Club ... 

... another fabulous morning ... 

... then I fell in love with reflections ...

... took the scenic route ...

... more of the good life ... 

... more turtles ... 

 Homeward bound back to Airlie. See you again in three weeks time Hamilton Island!
