11-14 February 2009

We flew to Cairns then took a transit bus to Port Douglas in North Queensland. (One of the main highways is called Captain Cook Highway.) Took a Great Barrier Reef tour on the Quicksilver and got to do an ocean walk as well as view lots of coral and sea life through the windows of a semi-submersible craft. Awesome!

We also visited the Daintree Tropical Rain Forest and saw the most magnificent birds and butterflies - amazingly bright colors!!

Loved this whole area and wish we could have stayed longer and seen more. Highly recommend it to everyone as a great place to vacation. We also had fabulous food this entire trip - which has not generally been the case when eating out here in AU.

Beautiful - we definitely need to go there! I love the photo of the bird on your head. Too funny.

Loved the beautiful photos. Yes! We will keep this in the memory banks for someday. Also, What a lovely hat. Wouldn't that be a great new fashion trend?! Who needs flowers and feathers on their hats when you cat have a cute parrot - how delightful!

Wow! I can't believe the colors! Absolutely breathtaking! It looks like a spread in National Geographic! I think I've passed my exclamation point quota! Thanks for sharing. :D
