Christmas 2017

Christmas 2017 was dominated by the sewer lair. Yes, baddies have a lair of course, but Ninja Turtles have their lair in the sewer. For Will, that’s a lovely place to entertain.

Our last day spent mostly in the pool

Tuesday 24th October. The last day of our holiday. Tomorrow we fly home to the cold weather of Melbourne. Today was a beautiful 30 degrees and the pools were a lovely 26 degrees. So we spent much of the day in the water.

Low Isles Reef Tour

Monday Oct 23rd and the weather has finally improved. We booked a Calypso reef cruise out to the Low Isles. This was a half hour cruise on Bubbles (pic below), then a transfer to a glass bottom boat for a look at the coral. Sadly the Coral is quite grey and the colours we expect to see are no longer. The warming of the oceans really is having a terrible effect up here. We finished our tour with a fantastic hour of snorkling which even Will managed to do, so we all had a close up view of the coral.

Jungle Surfing in the Daintree Rainforest

Day 1 was mostly travel. Day 2 was relaxing. But Day 3, here’s where the fun begins. Starting with a two hour drive from Port Douglas, we arrived in the Daintree forest, put aside all fear of heights and had 2 hours of adrenilin filled fun.

Puffing Billy

Mia and Will had their first ever visit to Puffing Billy. We drove to Emerald, had lunch in their wonderful bakery and boarded Puffing Billy for the 15 minute ride to Emerald Lake. The kids had a great play on the play equipment and we spent a couple of hours just hanging out. Then it was the 15 minute ride back to Emerald. A beautiful Melbourne winters day in the sunshine.

Santa brought Will his most sought after present. Thunderbirds Tracy Island. He will get many hours of enjoyment from this. Pity it took 2 hours to put together this morning…
