This and That

The There & Back Again Tour to FNQ

This morning we drove into Port Douglas. We had breakfast at the Mecure Resort ...beautiful surroundings and a rather nice buffet breakfast. Then on to the Port Douglas Beachfront Markets. OMG ... I think we have been out of civilisation too long. It was a chaotic confusion of stalls with ambling tyre kickers and mobile chicanes ... gentle push-and-shove and duck-and-weave. And really, for the most part, the merchandise for sale was not “special” to Port Douglas.
We consoled ourselves on the way home with yet another stop at Daintree Ice Cream (gosh ... sooooo regular that the other day the girl gave us the “local’s discount”). They make their own ice cream from fruits that they grow on their orchard. You don’t get a choice ... it comes as four scoops of four different flavours that change each day ... such as, banana, mango, pineapple, passionfruit, soursop, wattleseed, blueberry, black sapote, coconut. Yum ... not too creamy and great natural fruity flavours. All this and a wonderful view of Thornton’s Peak.
