from the Daintree

I am having an awesome time here. Have just a moment to send a note, have been up in the Daintree rainforest. Yesterday we spent time playing in the ocean, laying on the beach in the sunshine... it was a beautiful perfect day. Rainforest-covered cliffs come right down to the beach, and they're covered with lush forest, palms, tree ferns. Freshwater creeks spill out from the forest onto the beach and these creeks are the homes of saltwater crocs. We set some mud crab pots in a creek and then checked them a couple hours later and caught one big one, which we ate. We're staying with Coral and John who are like second parents to S. Coral was the chef on the Daintree Lady, a croc tour boat that Sean used to skipper back around 2000 or so. It's rained on and off but the rain comes and goes then the sun comes out. We are about to go check the pots again, which we left overnight. Hopefully we will find an abundance of them, and maybe even see the big croc that lives in that creek.

Sounds like your trip is everything you hoped it would be. s J wrote, if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans! I like that. Of course, planning is necessary when others are involved. Good luck discyphering between his will and yours.
