Cairns then Brisbane

After arriving in Cairns from Lockhart River (Cape York Peninsula), we stayed at a caravan park for a few days, there was quite a few of these beautiful yellow flowering trees giving a great show throughout the park & the city.

We took our boat down to Peter’s nephews near Mission Beach, he has a beautifil property with lotz of flowering trees & shrubs – thankx Ash & Ben. We also stayed at Mirriwini again with Julie & Danny (cousins) always a fun time playing cards – thankx guys. Back to Cairns to Peter & Paulines at Machans Beach – a beautiful spot with great friends – thankx Peter & Pauline. Pauline & I did an early morning walk along the esplanade – wow! very nice.

Flew to Brisbane, caught up with family & friends briefly & attended my brotherinlaws funeral. The sunrise & cloud formation from the plane was lovely.

Had a wonderful walk & picnic lunch at O’Reillys – Lamington National Park with Amy & family, Catherine & family – thankx guys for a lovely day.

I went down to Parklands on the Gold Coast with Jenna, Mike & Harry for a few hours – a great family outing, so many paths & playgrounds & the Sea hibiscus for blooming everywhere.
