Lizard Island was a second stop up the east coast of Australia when we first began our sailing trip. A recent cyclone had passed through and partially destroyed the the only resort on the island. It had been closed and mostly evacuated as a result, meaning besides a few clean a crew the island was essentially left empty and abandoned. We explored everywhere tracks took us and when the tracks ran out we bush bashed ourselves new tracks.
We managed a bit of snorkelling, the coral was a little bit destroyed from the cyclone but the fish life was still pretty abundant.
These was the happy times with Luke on board, it was after we left here everything started to go down hill…
After we left the Island everything started to go down hill a bit with Luke and the Skipper which ultimately meant the “no air to everywhere” trip become my solo mission.
