Sunday 31st July
We walked into nelly bay today and got our greyhound bus all booked up and our hostel in cairns. We then caught the bus to the forts walk – was a great walk round and up a hill which had the remains of a WW2 fort – we also aw two koalas in the wild! So cute! We also met a very friendly butterfly who didnt want to leav my flowery sunglasses!
Saw some spectacular iews from the top of the fort – we also spied out a potential snorkelling site. We then walked down to horseshoe bay where we were going to do some tubing but the engine had broken down on the boat! So we just did a bitof sunbathing before catching the bus back home! We had some disappointing news – we have been blown off the yongala wreck this week – hopfully we might get it on our way down again – but we will have to wait and see – finger crossed!
Monday 1st August
Had a nice lie in today and then went into the pool for the first tim and did some sunbathing. After lunch all the girs went offto leave pete with some peace and quiet and caught the bus to florence bay to do some snorkelling! It was ace! I saw a black tipped reef hark and there were load of fish and sea cucumbers and a blue spotted ray! On our way back to the bus stop we saw a rock wallaby too! We stopped off in nelly bay to pick up some shopping for our BBQ tomorrow!
