Paul and Susan are great hosts and were very friendly booking a couple of tours for us
I would say that the villa we had was a little disappointing in terms of size of the pool
The one advertised on the website looks a lot bigger and there was nowhere to sit and relax by the pool in the sun unless you wanted to be splashed by who ever was in the pool
The garden is literally the pool and the narrow walkway around
The two sun beds literally squeezed into the walkway round the pool
The villas itself was very clean and had all the facilities you would need - 3 toilets was a bonus
And 2 bathrooms
Maybe a foot rest for the two armchairs would have been good
Th laundry facilities were good - maybe a slightly larger clothes dryer would have been helpful
Location wise - despite being close to captain cook highway it was peaceful
Not being on the main front was not an issue
- it is a pleasant 10 minute walk at the most to the front where there was a good selection of restaurants

... all of them were so colorful. One of the instructors took us on a tour around the reef, pointing out various fish including parrot fish, angel fish, and dori fish. We also saw a number of clown fish (Nemos). Luckily, we also saw a young green turtle. The instructor concluded the tour by reminding us of the areas where we could swim and gave us an hour just to swim around.
The hour ...
... half of it!! Let it be said this was by far the worst bakery experience of our trip. The only way to get rid of the ghastly taste in our mouths was to have a large gelato ice cream from a different shop…..fortunately this was delicious!!
After the drive back to Palm Cove we took Aero for a nice long walk, including a stroll on the local jetty where we saw one chap almost bring in a large shovel nose shark and then ...
settled on Lake Placid Caravan Park which is on the banks of the Barron River, thinking
it might live up to its name and be
placid and quiet. Hmmm. Not in August, high season in this area of Queensland,
I’m afraid! To quote Pete: “It is like parking at Coles” – all in a row and
with not much space in between! However, we had still hopefully requested a
quiet site and were given one on the boundary of the park – sounds ...
Survived our first night in the shed. Being outside in the garden it was really noisy and difficult to sleep well, but at least we had a bed. Woke before 6am to the sound of showers and cases rolling. Why is everyone in Australia an early riser? It was such a lovely day today. Hot, sunny and humid. We'd heard about the Saturday market and night market here so that was our objective for the day. The Saturday market was a little ...

A little while after that I listened to a message from my brother in law Pete Wirth .... " I'm on my way to the airport to fly to Paris .... see you at The Open..... " The ...
