Picked up the campervan this morning and it is just the job, plus we have air conditioning this time - which is a real bonus in this heat.
Drove north and not too far out of Cairns to a small beach resort called Palm Cove. Very nice place though along the beach are notices advising people not to go into the water between November and May due to poisonous jelly fish and also to be aware of possibly coming across salt water crocodiles that live in and around these waters.
We actually got to see a young poisonous jelly fish as two lifeguards were monitoring the water and examining what they had found (the lifeguard who went into the water was completely covered from top to bottom in a protective 'stinger' suit). They had one very small jelly fish that was no bigger than my finger nail but can apparently put a healthy person in intensive care with one sting.
Total Kms 33 today.
