    ... in town for dinner. Was fun watching the rickshaws come past our outdoor table. So this is as far North as we go. Now we have to turn south and head towards home. We are still less than halfway in terms of time away, but we are heading south for the first time instead of North. It feels a bit weird, like we are finishing our trip soon. We have been discarding layers of clothing every few hours drive further north. I'm hoping the weather will follow us ...

    ... after a chap called Carpentier who was the top dog in the Dutch East Indies company at the was "christened" in 1606 by William Jansz, yup the same dude the fizz is called after.

We sat for a little while after lunch just people watching then headed back to the car and drove back home. ...

    ... to Pavlova- a merengue pie with a thin layer of custard and fresh fruit on top. It was quite the treat! We were also serenaded during dinner to traditional bush music, with a few popular tunes mixed in. After dinner the delegates danced their hearts out, learning two different dances. It was a very fun evening and a great day. We finally made our way to the hotel for much needed showers and sleep! Kid Quote: Holding a koala was a great experience and I loved it! ...

    ... fruit and drinks for our afternoon boat ride.

    Another city, another casino. On our way to the wharf we walked through the Reef Casino. It occupies two floors of a hotel with slots, gaming tables and areas for betting on races and various other sports.

    The afternoon excursion was great. We boarded the Reef Rocket which took us for a 45 minute ride to Green Island. Once docked we got on a glass bottom boat ...
