Well Ian's gone back to Brisbane and we’re back on our own again, it was great to spend some time with him and hear his plans, even if they do change with the tide!!!!! Today will be a quiet day spent on the beach although there is a lot of cloud on the mountains so we will have to see.

We decided to leave our towels etc on the beach and walk along the beach to see how far we could get and what we could see, the tide was coming in and it seemed to be bringing the cloud with it so after about an hour we turned back. When we got back to our stuff we watched a guy kite surfing close by and after a little while he came out and changed the kite for a larger one and we stood chatting for a bit. He was about my age and originally came from Zimbabwe about 7 years ago, I can’t understand why he stays here because his life style sounded awful. He lives in a valley close to Port Douglas which has it’s own river, 70m waterfall and deep pool for swimming and when he gets fed up with life here he drives across to the west coast towing a caravan complete with solar power (it takes them a fortnight to drive across). Basically he just goes to where the best wind is for kite surfing and has a base near the barrier reef, the stuff some people have to put up with!!!!
 Chris, he told me that Ningaloo Reef is fantastic as the reef comes right into the shore in some places and it almost totally unspoilt!!!

We had to rush off the beach as clouds were rolling in and managed to get to within 50 yards of our apartment before the rain came, we still got completely soaked, boy can it rain here!!! Luckily we are at the end of their wet season so it didn’t last long and went into town to do some shopping , more rain came so we had to shelter in a bar and Judi had an iced coffee and not alcohol, the sun must be getting to her!!!!!!
Ha Ha, but I did drink half a bottle of red wine when we got back to the apartment, so you don't have to worry about me.
