The next place keeps getting better!After leaving the BIG4 Holiday park with all the screaming kids, Bowen Tropical park was the perfect place. This was a quiet park and there were only 2 other trailers besides us. We were 4 feet from the ocean and next to the picnic area with tables and BBQ. We enjoyed this spot! We seemed to be getting out of the busy area's.

Very relaxing place
Our next stop was Townsville. It wasn't an exciting place we relaxed after a walk down the beach. All the towns we stop in have great beaches and waterfront parks.
Our next stop is Mission Beach. We were told this would be a good stop. It's a great little town and our Caravan park was great. We went for a walk on the beach and the a swim in the pool.
We saw these patterns on the beach. You can see it's some little critter that cleans out his hole and spits out the sand to make these patterns.
Looks like a flower!
We found the swimming area on the beach but we decided to pass. I don't trust those nets!
You can see the nets in the water to stop stinging jelly fish, sharks, crocks!
Back to the pool for a swim!
Next to our camp site was this strange tree. I have seen these on TV before. These things have seeds inside and when they fall they smash open and the inside seeds are let out and it smells really bad. I think the smell is to keep animals and birds from eating the seeds. Some of them are as big as a pumpkin.
This is what it looks like driving around the Cairns area. Narrow roads and high sugar cane.
Today we are in Cairns and we won't be getting many pictures here. A little bit of rain will keep us inside.
