      After a very early start catching the 4:30 train from Oak Flats We arrived at the airport 2 1/2 hrs before the flight.

      All started well until we went through security. Michelle advised the security she had 2 asthma sprays in her bag so she had to find them and remove them from the bag before they could go through the xray machine.

      Instead of waiting I thought I would go on through and wait for her inside. After going through security I ...

      ... and flippers bobbling around. This took us up til about 3pm, so we headed to the beach bar for a couple of drinks (this was probably the hottest day we've had, so drinking lots was a necessity - it was even too hot for either of us to have more than one alcoholic drink!!) before getting the ferry back to Cairns. Back in Cairns we then went to purchase some factor 50 suncream, as the factor 30 clearly wasn't doing it's ...

The ride itself was amazing although not for he faint hearted as we were pretty close to the edge of the mountain. We winded down the mountain passing water falls and views of the city whilst listening to commentary on the history of the train tracks and how they ...

      ... off the coach just as I was getting on, small world! Once I got to Cairns I arranged to meet Jamie (from the Kiwi Bus) for drinks and we had a really fun night catching up, including a strange guy joining us and constantly talking about sex. I then had to help set him up with a girl from behind the bar. Very random. Went to bed at 2:30am ready for a 6:30am start... ...

      ... sole, albeit a loud one and she can cook. One of the young men on board, Mike Conner, did his 100th dive naked. It was a shock as I was diving along and looked to my left and there was Mike in his birthday suit. No I did not take a picture. One of the shipmates, Fergus, had been limping all week. I had asked him what he did. He had stepped on a piece of glass and could not get it out. Well, I offered to help. Turns out we had a peramedic on board. Surgery was ...
