Goin’ Cruising #1
Last week we went sailing – on the beautiful P&O cruise ship Pacific Dawn.
Our seven night cruise began in the river city of Brisbane. We sailed north between the Great Barrier Reef and the Queensland coast to Airlie Beach, Cairns and Port Douglas, before heading 450 km east to Willis Island, a tiny speck of land in the Coral Sea. Our return journey took us into open waters outside the reef on our way back to Brisbane.
Our week was one of opposites – relaxation and activity, calm waters and rolling waves, a big ship and little boats.
