Have had 3 days here in Port Douglas & it's been fun & very relaxing. The weather's been a little bit better here so have managed to lie out on 4 mile beach & sunbathe a little bit. Sun keeps interspersing with cloud though...............Bex & Kat are not happy about the weather situation & are convinced they're going back to England as white as when they arrived!! Funnily enough, I'm getting a tan!!

We stayed at a cool hostel called Parrotfish Lodge & just wandered round the numerous shops & lazed on the beach. Had a couple of nights out at The Courthouse & Iron Bar.........they seem to be the only places to go really. It is a very pretty town but it is 100% a holiday resort for the well-off.........not really my scene.

Had 1 day where we went on a day's diving trip out to the Agincourt Reef on the boat - "The Aristocat" which was pretty cool. I did 3 dives & saw a lot of fish & even 1 white-tip reef shark! Even saw a humpback whale from the boat. So cool!! This has just made me want to work professionally within this industry even more now!!

We're heading to Cairns tomorrow morning for the girls last few days before they fly off. I need to have a base somewhere too & hopefully sort out my DiveMaster course there.
