Geoffs Life After Work !

Life is just beginning

From Kuranda to Cape Tribulation

We have travelled thru Port Douglas (where we briefly looked around) the coastal drive was terrific with the roads sides almost touching the beach So many kilometres of empty pristine beaches.Upon reaching the Daintree River we HAD to use the ferry to cross over.42 kms of twisting,winding,scary roads thru the dense rainforests lay ahead of us, Annie drove she got us to our destination safely (a few scary moments tho !!)Cape Tribulation is as far as we can go in our bus on the FNQ western side of Australia!! The scenery is unbelievable ! Colourful butterfly’s adorn this place and salt water crocodiles inhabit some sea areas, Cassowary’s are the protected birds and weigh approx 85 kilo s! (why they need protecting I don’t know !! I wouldn’t argue with one!!) Coconut palms adorn the very clean & deserted beaches (looks like a scene from Robinson Crusoe !) The plantation is something that I have only seen in very well heated conservatories ! Plenty of photographs have been taken,sadly they do not do justice to the beauty we have witnessed I have to confess when in the Jungle (only way to describe this rainy forest) I just HAD to do my Tarzan call (and greatly embarrassing Annie!!) needless to say NO elephants or other animals answered the call !!BUT not having worn slippers since my foot problem ,I did today AFTER the huge flying cockroach that had settled in there vacated my footwear !! It is now in Beetle Heaven !! We are still enjoying the best time
