In 1975 one of the Air Whitsunday’s pilots who regularly flew scenic flights over the Whitsundays discovered the “Heart Reef”. It has now become an icon of the Reef situated a short flight off Airlie Beach in the Great Barrier Reef Marine park. On Valentine’s day, it has become popular for couple’s in love to fly over the heart Reef and I have been reliably informed that many a Marriage proposal has been made in this most romantic of settings.
I love taking photos of food and at “La Tabella” Restaurant, the long Italian lunch that is served each Sunday has become a firm favourite. The 5 course meal is always beautifully presented, freshly cooked and delicious and at a very reasonably price. All the staff are very friendly and Chris has been looking after us with such great service ever since we started dining there last September.
As a celebration for St. Patrick’s day, even Sasha the pup donned a gorgeous hat. Our friends Lynnie and John invited us to a celebration of fine food cooked by John, gorgeous Irish décor organised by Lynnie, the greenest cocktail that I have ever consumed (quite delicious) and entertaining music. A truly lovely evening.
On Friday 1 April, we decided to enjoy breakfast at Shingley Beach park where there are public picnic tables and BBQ’s. Shingley Beach is one of the beautiful 7 beaches situated between our home at Cannonvale and Airlie Beach just 5 minutes drive away.
We were somewhat surprised to watch the Helicopter transporting concrete around the yachts in the Marina and over to the Rock wall on numerous occasions. Ah, well that is the way we do things here in the Whitsunday – never a dull moment.
