Our first stop of the day was the Port Douglas Wildlife Habitat. They had mostly birds.

After all this we got to Cape Tribulation where we had lunch at Cape Trib Beach House and some extra time to do what we wanted. I had the vegetarian option for lunch, which was a huge portion of very nice pasta with vegetables. After lunch I walked down to the beach. It was beautiful! The sea was almost as warm as the air. I wouldn't have minded staying there longer. There was hardly any people on the beach so I could probably easily have found a spot with no people at all if I wanted to.
We stopped and walked the Marrja botanical walk, or parts of it anyway as some of it was closed due to the cyclones a while back. This time the driver walked around with us and told us about the different trees and stuff.

|Jackfruit is the big one, Black Capote the little one and in the cup there's wattleseed|

I left my last two ReadItSwapIt books that I had prepared for someone to find on Monday.
The first one, To the moon and back, I left on my bed at the hostel. At least I'm sure someone will find it there.
The second one: The Vanishings, I left in my seat pocket on the plane. I wonder if someone has found it yet?
The landing in Brisbane was actually slightly scary. There was some turbulence as we were coming in for landing, not too bad really. But just after we touched down we all got "thrown" to one side. You know like when you take a sharp turn in your car? Everyone was okay, and as far as I could hear no one freaked out or anything, but it was a bit scary. We didn't go off the runway or anything. I have no idea what happened. It was just a bit: "Whoa!"
