I digress...back to the Daintree River tour. We get in the boat for 1.0 hour tour. The Daintree River is know for having tons of crocs on its banks and we saw a bunch. There were also a lot of birds in the area. I liked the photo ops from being on the river. Overall, it was kind of a lazy ride and it was good to be on our way to Port Douglas. Probably 1.5 hours later....we made it to Port Douglas. I was being dropped off...while the others on the tour were heading back to Cairns.
I got dropped off at my hotel the Sheraton Mirage. This place was swanky and had a huge property. Once checked in...I relaxed on my patio and there was a pond right outside. This was my first hotel stop on the tour and at first it was refreshing. I took a hot shower....freshened up...and got ready for a quick trip into town. I went to the bar in the hotel looking for other solo travelers...nothing. I decided to a beer and some nuts to quell the hunger. So I chilled out for 45 minutes watching footy
I bought a 24 hr ticket on a bus to get into town. it was 7:30pm and the last bus back was at 9:30pm..so I had to be quick. I basically walked the whole street and checked out the bars (only thing that was open). There wasn't anything special....but to be fair it was a Sunday night. I do recall one open air bar that had a projector screen playing the US Open. So I stopped there for 30 minutes. None of the bars were more than 1/4 full...so after walking an hour I headed back. A little more time at the bar...no one was there and I headed back to my room. Totally exhausted I went to sleep and didn't wake until 8am.
