We went to the rainforest and what did we see??? We saw the rain!
A full day trip to Daintree Rainforest was today's plan and it was another amazing trip to see one of the largest tropical rainforests in the world. Ben, our friendly tour guide, showed us all the sights.
We started at Mossman Gorge, seeing the swimming holes and a Boyd Forest dragon! He was even more full of facts than Susan was so she ...
A beautiful sunny day it's about 20 deg already and it's only 8.30.Today we are going to Port Douglas . Betty in the Van next to us said the markets are on and you should check them out just once so we did. The markets are big lots of stalls. We bought nuts and chocolate frozen banana for morning tea. Didn't see a thing I had to have. Left the markets went for a walk up the main shopping area. Did find a pair of sandals. We went ...

... fish are a joyful thing to see. Some good characters (fish, not human) hang around the float to avail themselves of feeding time.
Our trip had about 150 people…the boat handles up to 400. Can’t imagine the flipper-meets-face incidents that would happen with a full load.
Back on land, we drove north to explore the Daintree Rainforest National Park and Cape Tribulation. ...
