Whitsunday Writers Festival - a beautiful few days

17 June 2017
Airlie Beach is just stunning. Gorgeous weather, beautiful views from where I stayed and an enriching time at the festival will have me going home tonight smiling. I do hope the weather is nicer than when I left.

I have so enjoyed the author talks and getting to know them over the last 2 days. I have some books to take home that I can't wait to read.
