"Ahoy Mates!! Welcome to the second Girls Night Out online blog party! We continue our traveling ventures this week, while I'm putting together some different party events to come... so, in the meantime, just enjoy the ride and sites to see. If you haven't figured it out by now we're going on a Fantastic Treasure Hunt Voyage to Australia!!! Yes, by the request of one of our girlfriends, I've made it possible...anything for my girls!"
"As always, you'll need to take a minute to put on your imagination hats, close your eyes and get your mind in the right place. Take a minute here..............
"Okay, so here's how the Treasure hunt will go. You'll probably need to take some notes as you go along this weekend. Last week was a breeze, but this week, you'll have to do a little more work. I'll be your travel guide as we cruise along, but you'll have to guess the sites to see. I'll provide clues and links as hints, but you'll have to come up with the answers (click the question to go to the provided link) Okay, okay, keep your girdles on, I won't make it hard...promise :) Take good notes, because the final instructions will be there for you when we dock back in Sydney.
"One of my all time favorite music groups has joined us again tonight and they'd like to open the party with one of their all time hits, so let's get this party started with some music and the lakeside spank!"
WOW!! "I remember loving that song, and it still gets me spanking today, just as much as it did back in the.....okay..maybe I won't go there, but as my son would say, it's an oldie!"
"We have a couple of hours before the ship sets sail, some of you are already looking quite pale. So lets take a walk to the Ferry sea side for a buck or two, we may get a ride; to a place large in scale, with fins of a whale. Here the locals all say that on any given day, music and dance can be heard far away."
What attraction is it?
ship name, not cruise line
"In New Castle we'll see beaches galore, with sand that reaches way up to the shore. Explored by John Shortland, on his accidental tour, we're bound to see history as we walk out the door. Safe until high tides, we can bask and enjoy the glory, each with it's own character and some carry their own story. Not your traditional shower, no soap in site at all; yet ropes to hold onto as the waves pound the wall. such a magnificent setting, I don't want to go, but we must move on or we'll be left and that's for sho! "
Where are we enjoying the afternoon?
"oh, you all must be so tired from a day of so much fun, we have so much more to see, we are no where near done. But never fear, food is near as we board the ship to dine. what's that? Kangaroo, no I"ll pass... I'll take a salad, some amber fluid then chase it down with wine." What meat goes in the iconic Australian Meat Pie?
"Okay, so this dream must have been a prelude to today, for Airlie Beach is not far away. We'll travel a while so hang out and relax, the ship will send a signal when it's time to lower the hatch. Grab your bathers, sun lotion, hat's and glasses, don't forget. We'll be here for a while, at least until sunset. Maritime floss guides of there, side by side we shall be, thousands swarm for a glimpse, something just bumped against my knee. The blue light, the clear atoms all too much to take home, silence all around but we are not alone."
What are we doing at Airlie Beach
This little fella told me to give you a big hint for making it this far!
WOW!! what another exciting and learning adventure of a trip that was. I learned so much about Australia this week, I feel like a big book of knowledge. I hope you enjoyed the sties and I truly hope you took a minute or two to read some of the interesting sites you searched. Australia is a beautiful place, I had no idea. From the movies I envisioned, crocodiles, heat, kangaroos and dry land, but what a surprise!
