With a 30kt + blow forecast for the rest of the week we had a quick sail up to Goldsmith Island where we anchored in a great protected bay and best of all we had the place to ourselves. We spent three days here getting schoolwork done in between swimming and playing on the beach and remained the only inhabitants throughout. That's if you don't count the resident turtles that popped up beside the boat during the day. The girls also enjoyed games on the boat and remodelled themselves as Sarong Superheroes.

From Cid Harbour we were able to conquer Whitsunday Peak which was a great walk with excellent views that were a good reward for all the uphill. We set the crab pot again to no avail and eventually set off for for Stonehaven and Hook Island.
