Day 89

Cairns

This morning we partook of the pancake morning.  What a sight to behold.  This is not a small caravan park by any means, and the pancake breakfast is held once a week – Thursdays – every week.  It is a finely tuned production.  The staff even have special t-shirts they wear just for the morning.  Full tummies, and met lots of other travellers, but no photos.

Elisha is quite obviously missing school, and perhaps I haven’t been doing enough school work with them.  He’s made a few friends in here, actually all the kids have, it’s a very family friendly park.  Three of his friends are named Jacob.  One of them is home schooled full time, and Elisha has been joining him for school most mornings.  This morning Jos and I joined in too. coconut_schoolLater in the day Cayley, the gorgeous girl, decided that Gunter needed a bit of a clean, so she got down to business.  Didn’t want her picture taken though. coconut_cayley_cleanerAnd finally we went out of the park for a while today and into Cairns city.  We went to a cafe my parents recommended.  They frequent Cairns, and love it, and they especially love the food, and the gorgeous staff at Macarons.  I said hello from them to the staff – and we were rewarded with a free macaron each. Yum!

On the way home from our outing we stopped into a shopping centre and bought a new camera.  After a bit of research over the last few days and a lot of deliberation we went with a tougher model that is also suitable for underwater photography.  A little late for taking photos of the Great Barrier Reef, but we’re looking forward to more opportunities for using it.  A shot with the new camera for posterity. new_camera
