Trips

Eastern Australia

11/7/2012: We drove up to Port Douglass along the coast road, and I was keeping my eyes peeled for crocodiles every time we crossed water. There was one bridge from which I saw what looked to be a very large crocodile floating in a river, but my friend driving did not want to stop and confirm. That is too bad as we did not see any crocodile anywhere else. It would be nice to know whether or not the knobby crocodile shaped object was a log.

Arriving in Port Douglass, we arranged a scuba trip for the next day, but otherwise spent a very short time in the village.
