School holidays are here again. Yippee, I LOVE school holidays! (what are you talking about, there is no sarcasm in my voice!) Thankfully our cold snap finished after the first weekend and we were able to hit the beach and soak up the sun. We took advantage of the low tide to do some exploring in the rock pools.

Ours was not an original idea – there were families all over the beach doing the same thing. There were groups on family holidays chasing sand crabs and spotting fish in the tide pools and just having a splash in the beautiful waters of the Whitsundays.

After our walk we had a picnic from the Hamilton Island Bakery and a few hours later headed for our own little Hamilton Island resort – home!
