Winter Holiday Trip (Part 3 of 4)

 On our way from Airlie Beach to Cairns, we stopped at an old Quarantine Station and WWII post.  It was a chance to learn a little history and more importantly (for the kids) play on the beach.

We were walking back to our car, just visiting and laughing and suddenly Papa Echo stops.  He turns to the kids and says, "I don't want to hear any commentary on what you are going to see in the next five seconds. We will talk about it later."  Turns out we walked upon somebody sun bathing in the buff.  Luckily for us, he had put a washcloth over himself.  When we were no longer within hearing range, we had a lengthy discussion on the differences between the states and Europe when it comes to bodies and what is considered appropriate beach clothing.

 Finally we made it to Cairns.  The next day we went on a Skyrail journey over the top of a rainforest to a town called Kuranda.  After looking around town, we took a Train back to Cairns.


 Along the skyrail journey, there were stops where we could get off and walk along paths to a waterfall. 

 I just love all the greenery here.
