I have started posting our position again, so those of you that are interested can go to the side of the blog and click on Our Position and the relevant page should show up. Let me know if it doesn't work. We stayed 2 nights at Magnetic Island just east of Townsville. It was a very nice spot. Yesterday we took the ferry into Townsville. The city has a very dramatic setting backed by a very steep high hill. We went to visit the Naritime Museum and then wanting to see more of the city hopped on a city bus. We got a little more than we bargained for, it was a 2 hour bus ride and we toured every shopping mall in that section of the city. We had a very nice dinner at a Mexican restaurant when we got back to the downtown area. After the ferry ride then the bus ride back to the boat we didn't get onboard until about 8:00 P.M. It was good to be away from the boat for that long, a nice break from the 8 or 9 hours sailing that we have been doing every day. We are heading towards Cairns, I will post some Townsville pics when I get there.
