Palm Cove

sunny 28 °C


Yesterday was my ‘Saturday’ and also another day off for Brian, so we got to spend another ‘non-weekend’ day together. Brian’s friend Shaw (who is on the movie and is also a Kiwi) has his girlfriend Tori staying with him now so the 4 of us decided to head to Palm Cove and spend the day there. Tori only arrived on Sunday and Shaw had never been to Palm Cove so it was good to take them there on such a beautiful day.

Brian “borrowed” a sheet off the house keeping trolley on the way to the car to use as a giant towel for the both of us to lie on once we got to the beach. Our towels aren’t very big and it was quite nice lying there without worrying about sand getting everywhere. We also bought some snacks and drinks to occupy us with whilst we lay there soaking up the sun.

The boys hired a Catamaran for an hour and seemed to have a bit of fun trying to get it to sail. It took them a little while which was funny to watch but once they got the hang of it they cruised up and down the beach quite easily. I then went on the Catamaran with Brian for a little bit and got to hold the rope to the sail. Yeah, it’s not a very important job…especially when I did it lying down, but it was still lots of fun. It’s a nice view looking back at Palm Cove from the water. If only I could have taken my camera out with me.

After that we had some lunch (quite a late lunch actually) at a little café on the main street. Brian had the “Giant Hamburger” which wasn’t as giant as I had hoped it to be, and I ate some delicious Garlic Prawns and chips. After lunch we decided to head home to Port Douglas.

Today I decided to do a bit of wandering around the place and thought I would take some photos and show you all what Port Douglas actually looks like. We are blessed with yet another warm and sunny day and fingers crossed it stays like this! Warm sunny days usually means less wind, therefore are calmer trip out to the reef for me when I’m working on the boats! Lately it’s been around 10-15 knots, which is pretty smooth. I don’t have to take any travelcalm on days like that, unless I’m working on the sailing boat. 10-15 knots is still a smooth day for Wavedancer but it rolls differently to the bigger boats.

I went to the hair dresser this morning and got some highlights put in my hair. It’s been long and brown for so long I felt like a bit of a change. I only got caramel coloured streaks put in so it’s nothing too drastic. I guess I’ll find out whether it stands out or not when Brian gets home. It’s always good to test “change” on boys coz if they notice straight away then you know it may have been a little too extreme!

After that I went and had some garlic panini at one of the local pubs, and then walked down to the park and took some photos of boats and trees and things. I also had a nice walk on the beach before deciding to head home and see if housekeeping is done with cleaning the room. Oh yeah, I’m not sure if it’s been mentioned before but we get our room cleaned every Thursday, which a lot of the boys on set bitch about because they want it cleaned everyday. I always clean the room before the cleaner comes in so she doesn’t think we’re messy so I definitely don’t have time to do that EVERY morning before work. I’m happy with the once a week clean!

Ok well I’m off to do some grocery shopping now. Brian has to work Saturday but he has Sunday off so he might update the blog then. Go the Cowboys!!
