Day in Airlie Beach …..

We were tendered ashore this morning, trip to Ailrlie took about half hour, walked around the shops & markets for a few hours, then back to ship to relax by the pool & read about all the ferocious storms that have hit Newcastle & the Hunter, Cee said our place Tipaminka was very, very wet, all tanks & dams  are overflowing, branches down, no power, waiting to contact him in the morning if possible ……hope all is okay with everybody .. 


Just arrived in Cairns, 9am, they actually turned this big ship around in the channel, wow those tugs are strong, going for breakfast then ashore to see Cairns once again.  We walked into the city via the water / river front & past the lagoon which was closed for morning cleaning, but many backpackers getting an Aussie tan by the pool. 

We decided to catch a bus and visit the Botanical gardens about 10 kilometers out of town, spent the rest of the pretty hot day looking around there, then back to ship by around 4.30.
