As a special treat for my Birthday, Chris planned a surprise weekend away to Port Douglas which is a beautiful little seaside town about an hour north of Cairns. So the next day we set of for Port Douglas. We stayed at a beautiful boutique hotel in a gorgeous room complete with king size bed, a proper coffee machine, apple TV and ipad
Next day in Port Douglas was the market so we spent some time browsing there. It was a pretty cool market with loads of markets selling local fare. There was lots of opal and I decided to buy an opal ring for my birthday present which is very lovely! We went out for a breakfast of pancakes with fresh fruit and syrup before heading back out on the road heading back to Cairns. We stopped off at all the beaches along the way and stayed at Trinity beach for a bit of a sunbathe and a swim. There are deadly jellyfish around at this time of year so we had to swim in the stinger net. It was a gorgeous day and it was lovely to spend time chiling on the beach!
Chris made sure I had a perfect birthday and even though I was away from my friends and family, my best mate made sure I had a great time. Thanks Chris, love you!
