It was raining intermittently through the morning. Since we have five full days in the area, we had decided to relax today and formulate a plan for the remainder of our stay. After checking with our hotel's tour desk, we walked along the beach into Port Douglas. There are fairly ominous warning signs on the way to the beach. These warn of salt water crocodiles and "stingers" (jellyfish). Although the jellyfish are not in season, there still were containers with bottles of vinegar to alleviate their stings. In the summer months, they actually net off swimming areas and recommend protective suits as defense from these seriously dangerous creatures (the jellys not the crocs...doubt there would be a suit to protect you from the crocs).
We did get back in time to enjoy the resorts salt water pools. Enough of this slacking...tomorrow we're back at it!
