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

... boats platform into the water. While we were there preparing, one of the boat staff noticed Lynnes injuries, to which she told him it was a shark that attacked her! When he looked at me, I pointed at my leg and replied "me too!" And off we went! Breathing was much more natural this time and we stuck to the edge of the reef where the water was deeper to avoid any more injuries. We also got an underwater camera from the hostel so managed to snap some of the sights. ...
... of the Godseys all wearing our Roo pajamas as we bedded down for the Pacific flight, but #1 son and Timbo would not cooperate...but we have to return so I'll have another chance...LOL. We landed at 6:30 Sunday, Brisbane time. Somewhere over the Pacific, we lost Saturday. But we awoke to a dazzling sunrise through the clouds. I think I gained 10lbs over night. Everytime, I woke, the stewards wanted ...
Mmmm, blogging (or really diarying) creates a certain expectation that one will continue for the duration of the trip. I am lagging. As I relax more and more, my acuity for retaining the moments of splendour is becoming incredibly more sensory that narrative. But as Sam McGee said, as promise made is a debt unpaid…even to oneself.
... to the Battery workshop with an order and a bottle of wine for the inconvenience. In half an hour we were back on the road with a superdooper new battery which enables us to rough camp 2 nights running now! It has certainly saved us some money. It had not been important in the Outback as it was so hot we had to stay on sites so we could keep the fan running.
After Cairns we went wildlife spotting up on Atherton Tableland. In some ways this area ...
... 3 day live aboard tours we opted for the one day trip from Cairns to the outer reef. The boat was quite big with roughly 50 people on board most of who are snorkellers with only around 15 divers on board. Diving with a guide at the reef is not compulsory and you can dive with just another buddy rather than pay for a guide, most people would dive with a dive master guide but considering I am a dive master and after speaking to one of the dive masters on board she ...
