Straddie Island

Fish and chip view could never be better!!

Graeme fishing at Amity Bay

The ferry to the island was wonderful a very calm crossing altogether.  We were hoping to see some dolphins but it didnt happen.  Before we went onto the beach to camp they guys had to let down the tyres of the 4x4's then off we went.  This is the first time I have ever been on the beach in a vehicle.

My first words were 'this is paradise' the colours of the sea, the vast amount of beach simply magical.

Alfie totally enjoyed his time in the sea, Mia wasn't too keen as she really is not a water dog.

We had a tour of the island and had fish and chips overlooking a lovely bay.  Fish and chips have never tasted as good!!

What a lovely island and I can't wait to visit it again in the future.

  1. It sounds like you had a fabulous time! The beach is one of my favorite places to be! Fish and chips are one of my faves, but across the pond we call them fries.
