Day 23 - We awoke to light but steady rain an decided that we would have an easy day. So after a leisurely breakfast we headed off to Port Douglas for a look see and lunch. The drive took us once again through sugar cane country with huge fields of 2.5 metre cane, ready to be harvestedDonna had not been to Port Douglas for many years and was surprised how it had really developed. The new block of apartments and shops on Macrossen Street when you turn onto it really looks like Noosa. We still had a very nice stroll through the shops and the quote of the days goes to Lucy who after a shopping expedition with Donna for a short while said “ Dad I really saw a pretty handbag, shoes and a very nice top I would like to get!” at age six thank you. How does that happen???? We had lunch at the recently renovated Central Hotel which was great and then had another stroll, coffee and ice creams. After a quick drive to the look out, marina, Mirage and new Sea Temple complex, we headed back to the van. At last Harry could complete his long held desire to crack open a coconut and inspect the contents while the girls enjoyed some local bannans (beutiful and sweet).
