We saw cop cars in yellow, green, blue, grey, white, silver, red and every colour and shade you can think of and hopefully they didn't know our name!
The wee Jayco is going to get a good clean too and now we'll have time to tighten up all the loose nuts, bolts and screws.
AND....the laptop survived, no drinking on the job this time...I did keep all wine and beer well away from it!
Our next post will be....maybe the trip to Cape York, although I doubt we'll have much internet service up there or maybe the trip back down to Adelaide, we will use a different route...
Now Cairns, for those who don't know, is in Far North Queensland or FNQ for short. The city has a population of about 150,000. Its in the tropics so its hot and humid (yeeehaaa) and doesn't go below about 20C during the day in winter, very little rain during this time - that's kept for the Wet Season, when they also get cyclones... as you will all know wikipedia knows all so here's the link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cairns.
As Cairns sits on a bay (Trinity Bay) you'd expect the water to lap up to the Esplanade, well, it doesn't as the tide seems to be out all the time, so they built a swimming pool right on the foreshore - the pool is feckin' HUGE, how big is it? It's SOOOO BIG they call it a swimming Lagoon, not a pool, a LAGOON.
