          ... big and small. We could see the movement of the reef and, as we swam over it, saw more fish.

          We spent a good hour in the water with the guide showing us things like the giant clams, various fish ending with a Nemo spotting (clown fish to be more precise). This was really amazing.

          After our first encounter, we got out of the water and had a little lunch. Then back in the water to look around a little more. ...

          ... The road we took was the same road the Qld Govt bulldozed in the 1970's causing widespread demonstrations and the birth of the green movement. Nice drive up through the world heritage listed rainforest. Went as far as Cape Tribulation where we took some photos (after eventually finding somewhere to park - people everywhere) and had lunch on the way back. Called into the Daintree Discovery Centre and did a couple of their aerial walks through ...

          After arising at 4.15am and travelling to the airport in driving rain and very cold temperatures, it was quite delightful to step out of the plane on the Cairns Tarmac. We collected an almost new Nissan Outlander (racy red colour) and drove to Thala Beach Lodge, set on a pristine forested piece of land near Oaks Beach. Our hut is comfy and quiet and set amongst dense undergrowth. I walked to the beach to check it out. No crocs that ...

Mum and I planned to go for a swim in the sea to wake us up. Leech was dead to the world so we left her where she was. I had gotten up to me knees and it really wasnt that cold but then mum scared me with her undercurrent comments and the rocks started to smack against my legs as the big waves brought them back in. So we took a quick shoulder dip and then ...

          ... everything is and how it all works.
          End of work, I go with Gil to the shops. We find no cans, water or bread on any of the shelves, the unrest has infected everyone however, we are here for the bottle shop, and two rums will see me through the storm I think.
          The next night brings heavier winds and rain and to keep us all together Donna and Gill invite us over for dinner. Alongside a few of their friends, we all sit, drink and eat as it hits and makes it way down the ...
