Eight nights we have spent at Mission Beach mainly north mission at the council run caravan park and for each of these days it has rained, sometimes a little sometimes a lot. Despite this little difficulty we have endeavoured to make the most of the situation.

On my first morning walk I spotted a Cassowary crossing the road at a cassowary crossing, totally unbelievable!

Rosalee haS run along the beach most days, although the beach is as hard as concrete that you see people riding their bikes along the beach sand.

The kids have been having a great time playing with the other kids here and have collected lemons from a nearby lemon tree, passionfruit from a wild vine and even tried to sell the lemons to other people in the park. Their friends included Indica, Keanu & Bailey.

The library has had a good workout and Elijah is enjoying the Rondo series.

A couple of day trips to Innisfail along the cane cutter way, visited Parnalla Park and bought some cheap bananas at the plantation.

We all attended a tropical fruit tasting at the Info centre and tried all sorts of bizzare fruit, some good and some forgettable, however a great experience to undertake.

South Mission has heaps of kangaroos they are almost in plague proportions that they resemble rabbits.

Another couple of days free camping and then onto Cairns.

Mission Beach you have reminded us that we are in the wet tropics.
