As I only have one full day in Cairns I wanted to make the most of it. So I was up with the sun.
I think this is a curlew as it has the very long beak
These are Australian pelicans and they are absolutely huge. As I was awalking along the prom I was quite surprised that there was no-one swimming or even paddling in the sea and then I read this sign:
There was a beautiful swimming lagoon a bit further on
There were lots of other people strolling or jogging along the pathway so it was easy to find someone to take a photo
One of the great things about Cairns are all the facilities they have to encourage people to keep fit.
It certainly sets an example to other towns. There were a number of outdoor gyms beside the walkway
I walked round as far as I could go which was to the marina and then left the sea to go into the town for a look.
