Our last full day in the tropical Far North East Queensland. We had talked about going back to Kuranda, to do the Sky Rail and the Scenic Railway. But then we looked at the sky and the time and decided to do the “Discover Port Douglas” trip instead.
I packed up the two largest kitchen knives to put in the car to cut open the coconuts. Then we went for a walk along the main street and did some gift shopping, matching shirts for each of us and a few other things. The sun came out and I remembered we left the sunscreen in my bag in the car. We walked up to the lookout after a chat with the friendly sales assistant who came here from Sydney twenty years ago. We couldn’t find the stairs down from the lookout and walked down to Grant Street where we bought pies for lunch. We took our shopping home and then walked to the beach in our swimsuits. We found the sunscreen in Josef’s rucksack- I took a photo of the sign, yes, there it is, crocodiles may be here. We saw the people swimming from the lookout and I advised Josef that we should swim between the flags. I guess we stayed in the water about an hour, catching the waves and tasting the salt. The sun disappeared again, but it was still warm. Now it is just four-thirty and the day is nearly over.
