          Lovely apartments just a few metres from the beach. The pool and hot tub are great too and have a lot of shady areas which is good to cool down in. Well equipped rooms and helpful staff.

I didn't because it was about 80 degrees outside and the water was just a bit cooler. Thankfully, we planned our trip to the reef at the right time because just a month later and the jellyfish will move in (and then you have to wear full length stingersuits).

          ... out on Thursday and Friday (4 September) was a wild windy day with some quite large waves breaking on the beach where for the last couple of days it has almost been as calm as a millpond!

          During our stay in Port Douglas we had neglected to taste the offerings of the local ‘award winning’ bakery so we took a drive up there. Firstly we popped into see Michael and Ina who were the super friendly managers of the park ...

          I will stay in Cairns for 4 nights. I hope to visit the Great Barrier Reef ,....go to the Koala Farm, visit an Aborigines Village, and check out the Cairns Markets. But first,.....I will get out of these grubby clothes, shower, and S-L-E-E-P! Sweet,...sweet sleep!
          So,....will sign off for now. Welcome to Australia,.....'Good on ya Mate'!

          It's my birthday!!!

          ... to walk when the boat is rocking so much was quite difficult and by the time we got outside it was probably long gone! We did feel a little nauseated on the reef today but that had nothing to do with the motion of the ocean. It was because of Monica and Ian, the irritating couple who were sat opposite us. They were the same age as us but they spoke to each other in very annoying childish voices! Oh, and so you're probably wondering ...

          From Cardwell we made our way to Cairns. We drove through Tully, which was badly affected by cyclone yazi a few years ago. Real estate is very cheap here. With an over abundance of properties on the market and no jobs available it has threatened the existence of these smaller towns. We stopped for lunch at the pub at fishery falls and then headed to Cairns to stay with some of Barb's relatives who live on an acre. ...
