Maggie Island!

Geoffry Bay
Did you know?
The name of the island came about because of the apparent "magnetic" effect it had on the ship's compass of Captain Cook as he passed the island when sailing up the east coast of Australia in 1770. People have since explored the general area of Magnetic Island with various instruments to discover what might have caused the effect that Cook reported, but nothing has been discovered. It's a mystery!

sailing over on the sun ferry

Went to dinner at a restaurant called Man Friday  and made some stinky friends!  These possums were very keen on tortilla chips... 
                   yum yum in my tum!                          shooters? give me a chip!

                              now i'm happy!                      possum on the menu (literally)

Hanging out for the day on Horseshoe Bay!  So gorgeous, we went sailing on a Hobie Catamaran!

lovely day on the bay

cruising around the island in style


  1. Think we could get a car like that in the USA?

  2. Stinky stinky stinky! Elise, you must've been in heaven with all those little furry critters everywhere. Kisses for everyone! LOL...

    Miss you!

  3. How did you know honey? One of the possums was so friendly. I even gave her a name. Lily!!! She would take the tortilla chip so gently out of my hand and she liked to be pet on the back. I love fury little stinkers. Miss you <3
