Diving is off again

Even though the sun was shining this morning when we got up at 6.15, the diving was still cancelled due to strong winds out on the reef itself, so another day of trying to entertain ourselves.
Having seen much of the town yesterday whilst walking around in the rain, today we decided to hire a car and bimble up to Cape Tribulation & Port Douglas to look around. The drive up to Cape Tribulation was simply stunning once you got past the outskirts of Cairns. Lots of winding roads with the big hills on one side and the ocean on the other, excellent. Once in the rain forest nearer the Cape you started to come across more and more landslides causes by the past few days of rain.
Even though there were signs everywhere, we failed to see a single Emu or Crocodile. Although when walking past a childrens playground by the beach in Port Douglas, there was a warning sign that crocs inhabit the area.....that's good planning then.
Due to popular demand, the meal report is back.

Beard Update - I haven't shaved since leaving the UK and it's now beginning to annoy me, but Wendy won't let me shave it yet.
