Sugar cane and mountains

The next day we went for a drive into town, to The Strand. We had been told there was a really nice lagoon just beside the beach to swim in, and we thought that might be a good idea as there are poisonous stingers (jellyfish) around this time of year. Unfortunately they had had some problems with algae they’d had to drain it. Luckily we had passed a playground along the way, so we went back there for the kids to have a play. After that we went to Reef HQ Aquarium, which was quite good. They had lots of different fish, a coral display, etc. Reagan loved it and was running around madly, which got a bit much eventually. After that we went to have a look at the Mall, where Reagan and Merv went on a train ride, while Jordan and I did some shopping.

Townsville looks like a really nice town, and we would love to go back one day and stay a bit longer to have more of a look around.

There are so many things we didn’t get to see! On the way back to the cabin both kids fell asleep in the car… For dinner we had decided to have a barbeque, which Merv started to cook while I put Jordan to bed. Then I took Reagan for a swim, but Jordan woke up crying so we had to get out of the pool which of course upset Reagan. All this did not make for a very pleasant night! Both Jordan and Reagan slept very badly, and I ended up in Reagan’s bed while she slept in the double bed with Merv…

We got up early and packed the rest of our things (we had packed as much as possible the previous night), had some breakfast, and were on the road again around 8.15 am.
