Tuesday 8th October - Cairns to Mossman20.9 last night and back upto 31.2 today. Our drive today took about 90 minutes, as the road was windy in parts, but the scenery was lovely. A part of the way was almost along the shore line, which was very pretty. Lovely shades of blue. We are staying at the Mossman Caravan Park, which is a council owned and run park. The van park is not real busy as there is only a couple of tents and one other van here, besides on the permanents. Our site was a lot easier to reverse onto, compared to Cairns and some others. The only drawback is not too many trees to give us shade, so we'll see how it goes. We're here for two nights and Clive is looking to do the Gorge walk tomorrow. You park at the information centre and then a bus takes you to the start of the Gorge Walk. This park backs onto a creek that is gently meandering along. You can imagine how fast this would be, once the wet season gets here and the you get a lot of rain.
Monday 7th October - CairnsOvernight down to 20.3 and back upto 29.0 today, so weather wise just more of the same. Apparently heatwave conditions on the Gold Coast, so we just hope that it doesn't come up here. Not much happening today, so a reading day for both of us. Clive went and got one of the gas bottles refilled. Off to Mossman tomorrow.
