Another day in Australia............on the Coral Sea!
Have I mentioned Duff is doing well driving on the wrong side of the road? Once he quit turning on the windshield wipers instead of the turn signal....:):)
After breakfast in our room this morning we headed out to the Aboriginal Culture Park for about 3 hours of education by the Tjapukai tribe who are dedicated to preserving and presenting authentic Aboriginal culture with the aid of modern technology. They have three theatres, a museum, an art gallery and demonstrations of spear throwing, digeradoo, boomerang throwing and food and medicines used by the Aboriginies.
After this we drove up the coast to Palm Cove where there are a number of resorts. The beach is beautiful. This drive is along the Coral Sea and the water is an incredible turquoise. Along the way we stopped and watched some fellows hang gliding. The breeze was nice and it seemed easy for them to catch the wind to take off. What a wonderful place to do that.....man what a view.
We drove on to Port Douglas, again more resorts right on the Coral Sea. We had an iced coffee (which was like a coffee float with vanilla ice cream) and then on back to our abode here at Tree Tops. After washing clothes this evening, we'll finish packing and be ready to leave for Sydney in the morning.
We'll catch you tomorrow from our hotel in Sydney!
