Today was a reasonably quiet day with a trip down to Cascade Bay and a visit to the Botanical Gardens, but first back
to Miligans for Gai's breakfast of a toasted ham & cheese sandwich, while I had a beer. Well it was nearly 2'O Clock!.
Well, the shops are still shut so tomorrow will be the big shopping day - we hope. We did the short drive to Cascade Bay
and there was a bit of a swell with the surf coming up and over the rocks. Cascade Bay used to be an old whaling station
in days gone by and now all that remains of it is the old boiler - sitting silently there rusting away.
From the Bay it was off to the Botanic Gardens. The rainforest here is very beautiful and they have done a special
board walk for wheel chairs, as well as a normal one that goes down to the canopy floor. So I did this, while Gai
rested at the top. Good job too as there were over 500 steps going down and another 300 odd coming back. Well worth it
though and my photos do not do it justice.
For tea tonight we went to the RSL Club. We both had local beef steaks and the meat was very tender. You can certainly
taste the difference to what we eat over here.
