Our friends the Johnston family were at Hamilton Island for a week during the holidays so we took the opportunity to visit them and also check out Hamilton island. The girls had a ball playing with the Johnston kids in the resort pool and on the beach.

In Stonehaven we caught up with friends John and Jo on the catamaran Kirra Kirra and with their advice and bait we even managed to break the fishing drought and catch a few edible reef fish in the form of a stripey snapper and a grassy sweetlip, yaaaay!!
We then chose to go further North to Gloucester Passage and Gloucester Island to escape the crowds and we weren't disappointed. Nice national park beaches and a few low key resorts greeted us in the area and we enjoyed being one of only a handful of boats in the anchorages we visited. Gloucester passage is also the furthest North we will go this year as we have decided to start our journey Southwards again.
