Whitmonday Islands?

James Cook might have been a brilliant explorer, but he was less good at remembering the days of the week. Not knowing it was actually already Monday, he named the islands after the Christian holiday Whitsunday, which is when he thought he had arrived.

In all fairness you can’t blame the man for feeling time stood still when he laid eyes on wonders such as Whitehaven beach while cruising this heavenly piece of earth.
