Sail Away to Whitehaven.

10620163_814025968653568_8993737879314789562_oWe stayed on a catamaran for a few days in the Whitsunday Island chain (north of Sydney). We swam, paddle boarded, kayaked, and snorkeled our way through. It was such a relaxing few days, I enjoyed every bit of it!

I have an underwater camera that I need to get developed with our snorkel photos at the coral reefs. I can’t wait to share those with you, the fish that we saw were so beautiful!

Just A Few Angels On An Island

Since the weather has been so beautiful in San Francisco, my friends and I decided to check out Angel Island.  I had never been and my friend, Shannon, had so she knew it was worth the adventure.  You have to take a Ferry there which was actually a lot of fun!  We took the Ferry from Tiburon which is such a beautiful area so we decided to have lunch there first.  After we got to the island, it was beautiful sights for miles.

I definitely recommend this fun adventure to anyone.  There is a walking loop, a biking loop, and so much more.  They even have a little cafe and place to rent bikes right by where the ferry drops you off.  It was even a great place for families because right where you get off the ferry is a large lawn with picnic tables and plenty of space for kids to play.  We walked a lot of the loop that wraps around the island which was great for exercise, fun, and picture taking.

We hope you have a great weekend, Happy Friday!
