Hubby and I arrived in Cairns on Christmas Eve and D2 arrived later that same day. We all went for a drive to search for some lights and were delighted to find some. People go to a lot of trouble for us to enjoy the 'after-dark' display.
Christmas Day was very relaxing. The first order for the day was coffee and then we continued to graze on yummy fruit and dips until lunch time.
D2 prepared the serviettes nicely.
I made up a Herb Pull-apart bread and we enjoyed a delicious meal of roast lamb ....
... baked vegies, gravy and sides.
On Boxing Day we spent the day in Kuranda. We took a glass-bottom gondola on the way in which we were able to enjoy the beauty of the rain forests.
After lunch we boarded a train back home. The train was packed and they had to add 3 more carriages to fit everyone. It was certainly popular and we thoroughly enjoyed our day out.
It was nice to enjoy fresh tropical fruit. We made some mango lassi and I collected some frangipani's on a walk one day. Pretty!!!
Our first trip to Cairns was a trip to remember. Next time we might visit in the cooler months if there is such a time.
Until next week ... Dot
