|On the Mangrove walk|
It is my birthday in a few days so the children enjoyed having kept a secret and gave me my birthday present. It is a lovely long sleeved red top and a short sleeved grey top. Roanne knows how much I feel the cold lately and the tops will be great when we are back in cold temperatures. We may not be able to speak with the family on my actual birthday as we will be somewhere remotely in Cape York.

cyclone protection. It was really interesting and a good opportunity for the children to stretch their legs and have a run before boarding the plane for the trip home.

For Peter and I it was back to Port Douglas and time to start packing up as we move out of camp on Thursday to commence our Cape York trip
