The same local mono-hull boat that was alongside at the public dock was still sitting there. Originally their story was something about a broken anchor winch and not being able to anchor out. That’s fine but I do know that some of the other boaties were beginning to whinge about the mono’s continuing presence as this boat was taking up precious space and time on the only public dock in this area.
In the afternoon MrJ went over to Neriki to help Ric put his sail back up while I stayed home and did some cooking. I made a traditional Lasagne from scratch, for our dinner and it was so yummy that MrJ had seconds.

|Feeding our faces|
From the Vinnie’s shop we walked up the road to the Whitsunday shops stopping at the computer shop on the way. The fellow in the computer shop gave me some good advice that was to buy another external hard drive to back up all my photography work. At the Whitsunday shops MrJ and I went into a Dick Smiths shop and bought the just that hard drive for my computer.

The same mono-hull had been still attached to the public dock; now the story goes that they were also waiting on delivery of an outboard motor for their tender. On our return from the shop the boat had moved off leaving the public dock free once more.

I walked into the township of Airlie via the waterfront boardwalk and up the main street where there was not much happening for being the middle of school holidays. The most movement on the street was some road works happening which slowed the trickling traffic to a crawl. There were some tourist on the footpath and in the shops but still not as many as I had expected. Time are really tough in the tourist towns these days. After looking in a couple of shops and not getting anything I decided to catch the bus up to the Whitsunday Shopping Centre where MrJ and I went the other day and boght a toy dinosaur for one of my photographic challenges. ha, ha, ha!!!! Should have seen the looks I got on the way home, taking photos of my new toy sitting on the grass, in the park garden or on the rock pools. hahaha!!!!
