We went out to dinner with the two girls we met on the dive trip and swaped diving stories over pizza and a wine.
We slept in Cairns that night and got up to catch a shuttle bus to Port Douglas.
We've checked in to the Backpacker Hotel and we have rented two 50cc scooters to "scoot" around town on. They're pretty fun, it reminds me of when we rented scooters on our family trip to Cancun. Not very fast but fun to zip around on.
We're going to just hang out here; the town looks like it's ready to be over-run with the rainforest any minute. There are birds everywhere and it's hot and humid.
We'll catch the hotel's shuttle back to the Cairns airport in the morning and head back to Auckland for a two day layover on our way back to LA on Friday.
I'll get more photos up once we get back to Auckland, these smaller towns have pretty slow connections.
Hope everyone is doing well,
Mike & Jen
