      Ok, but a long walk to town

      Nice, large rooms, well maintained and friendly managers. But the rooms are starting to get a bit dated and the place is right down the hospital end of town quite a hike to the main part of Cairns

      ... that is responsible for all your rational decisions is saying "errrrrrrrrrr....nuh...you're going to die if you let go of that railing. We ain't going nowhere!" and freezes you to the spot. The 'edge guy' Alan, was responsible for getting me off that platform and he did it in fine form. I have a mother who swings spectacularly between tough love and soppiness (in the nicest way of course) so I'm used to being told off in that 'its for your own good' kind of way, ...

      ... more yum! We relaxed in the sun (but also shade) on the way back and drank our rum. They then stopped the boat and came round with some crackers and cheese and goon! (Bagged wine). Doug gave us the story of the boat (it's an old pearl lugger) and he has worked/owned the boat most of his working life. It's an old wooden sail boat which is a lot different to all the other plastic white boats! A bit slower but more charm. We had our mugs of wine and a lot ...

      Arrived in cairns late afternoon and made our way to pick up the campervan. Ended up having kfc for late lunch/early supper and then went off to find our campsite.

Day 2...woke to the campsite practically flooded, we could have canoed to the toilets. Finally it died down a bit and we packed up and headed off. We stopped at baron falls, which was a short walk to a ...

      This slowly shuffling midget is a far cry from the agile and sprightly girl who spent the day swimming about the Outer Reef and hefting a cylinder of oxygen around the pontoon.

      Thankfully, as far as traumatic incidents go, this is probably the most notable of the day as, not only did some fearsome carnivore not come lunging towards me with a hungry rumbling in its belly but, as it turns out, a 2 metre silver-tipped reef shark swam right under me and I didn't even notice! Oh, I ...

Back in the water and I swam with wally n willy (pic of wally). Went on the glass bottom boat and saw fish, coral and sea cucumbers. The under water observation deck was small but brill. Got back on the boat cause Heath wanted ice cream. Sitting quietly looked out to sea and I saw a sea turtle! Yay! Perfect perfect ...
