More of our holidays

I have a little boy who's not feeling too flash today. He's come home with a horrible cold, so I think it will be a slow day at school if we do any at all.

While at Innisfail, we drove up to Millaa Millaa and Ravenshoe. We saw the most beautiful waterfalls (Ellinjaa, Millaa Millaa, Zillie and Millstream Falls) in that area and of course the wind farm at Ravenshoe.

Initially the wind turbines were cloaked in cloud but later in the day the sky cleared somewhat.

We then continued up the coast to Cairns. By now the rain had eased and we had showers at night with beautiful days. The highlight of our days in Cairns was going up to Kuranda on the Skyrail and back back on the Scenic Rail. At one of the stops on the Skyrail, we had a guided tour with Aaron and he told us about some of the rainforest plants. It was very informative and we came away knowing so much more. We enjoyed our day, but all agreed going on the Skyrail was the highlight. Would you believe we even came across one of the school's teachers up at Kuranda and sat opposite people nowing friends at a town nearby. What a small world!

We also caught up with my family at Cairns...they had been to Townsville for the Tim McGraw concert.
