It was a busy Easter and Anzac Day here in Port Douglas. After cyclones and floods tourism is at a low for the season, but compared to what it's been like since we first arrived, the five-day long weekend was one packed with people. With the motel booked solid, and him working some extended shifts at one of the local coffee shops, Friday through Tuesday were loooooong.
That's what she said!
Despite the long hours we managed to scrape together an Easter feast, had a few Easter Bunny sightings, and finagled our way onto a sunset cruise aboard the Lady Douglas.
No crocodiles were out, but we did see one of the local birds, and a couple of Port Douglas shipwrecks.
The second sunken ship was originally in Cairns Harbour, but the story goes that the local fishermen got sick of it dragging anchor, so one night they broke the chain and set it adrift. After bumping into a few other boats on its way up the coast, the wreck was finally brought to the inlet by the Port Douglas Coast Guard where it couldn't cause anymore harm.
There ain't no justice like mob justice!
