The Lions Den

This was a grouse pub only a bit out of Cooktown off the main highway. It was full of quirky stuff and writing all over the walls just like William Creek Hotel. Its a pub you just have to visit and tick it off your list that you have been there!.

Cooktown

Cooktown

Cooktown

I was surprised with Cooktown it was bigger than what I had imagined, it was a nice little town with heaps of old buildings still in good nic. Lots of old pubs, and a lot of history with Capt. James Cook not much of a wharf though it was tiny. It was very windy when we were there but the weather was ok it didnt rain. Heaps of beautiful flowers that we dont have in Melbourne.

The Lighthouse had awesome view, well worth the walk up the big hill, josh thought he could ease the pain in going sideways up the hill. The view was 360 degs of Cooktown. I was glad to leave Cooktown after we saw the python I had gone passed that only a few minutes before Craig and Rod and I didnt see it. I think I need to buy a better torch.....I didnt sleep very well that night. lol

Lots of Love

Made to the tip, now heading home

sunny 27 °C

It`s been a while since my last blog. In this time we have all ready been to the tip and stayed at Seisia now heading home.
I had fun at Seisia at night we went fishing off the wharf. It was my job to catch the live bait for everyone. Dad bought me a Jig, which has heaps of hooks on them and you jiggle it into the water and the sardines see the shiny silver things and you hook them. Mum was having a turn and the Torres Strait islanders starting laughing at her and told her if she wants to catch some fish you have to put it in the water. She didn’t even realise her line wasn’t in the water no wonder she didn’t catch anything. It was so funny.

When we went to Bramwell station Mum, dad, josh and I saw a cute little calf and a puppy. I don’t know what the cows name was but the puppy’s name was Bandit. The calf was licking our car and rubbing his neck on the bull bar, I think he wanted to come home with us.

Python at the Caravan park

At Cooktown Rod and dad went to the toilet and they saw a huge python outside the toilet block that ate a fat thing. It was about two and half metres long. It was moving very very slow and heading for a tent. We woke the people camping so they knew it was there.

Seisia tribal dancers

When we got back from Thursday Island the local fishing club had a tribal dance night. It was all the local kids. They were really good it only cost $10.00 per person which was cheap.
There were some really little kids and they were so cute to watch.

Thursday Island

Thursday Island

Thursday Island was really nice. It was a lot bigger than we thought and very hot, the water was so blue and clear. We went to the Grand Hotel for lunch and walked around the island. We went on the bus tour of the Island which was very informative and worth doing. They took us to the fort and a few other places around the town. The boat ride was a bit rough going over but on the way back it was not as bad.
