The day spent at the Great Barrier Reef was awesome. It will long remembered by me. Just seeing everyone having a good time gives me so much joy. The day after,the group had a long day at Kuranda Gardens, saw Koala Bears – no Kangaroos but had a good time.However, Sandy and Chandra went to the Wildlife Habitat and there saw Kangaroos and Koalas.
My final dinner in Port Douglas was most enjoyable at “On The Inlet” – open-plan alfresco, dining by the water. The food was top notch and I highly recommend it. We had a VERY early start the next morning (3am). There was an hour drive to the Cairns airport and a 5am flight back to Sydney. Some were flying home to San Francisco, Atlanta, Houston while others had an Air New Zealand flight to Auckland. Marilyn and Barbara W were going later in the day (lucky ducks) to Melbourne (pronounced mel-bin). Also FYI: Aussie’s pronounce Brisbane (bris-bin) and remember Cairns is not Care-ins but Kanz.
Thank you all for flying with me and especially to the shut-in who love to get stamps in their “passports” without leaving the states – Casso, CJ, Dupree, Donnie, T-Dub & Lil Rico.
Next trips: Stroll Thru Black Paris – April 27, then Afro Heritage in Colombia, South America May 9th. See you soon~
