Australia day 25: A sad departure from Cairns, 29th October 2009
Saturday, November 7, 2009 12:18:04 PM
After checking out of the hotel we let Gabriel play in the swimming pool while I sat and caught up on blog posts and work, and Kirsty went for a walk with Elva. We couldn't really do much today in terms of seeing cool stuff before the flight back to Sydney, as the decided to rain. Gabriel's spirit impressed me however (as it always does) - even though it was raining quite heavily at some points of the morning, Gabriel was not phased, and still had loads of fun in the pool, jumping in and making lots of noise ;-)
In the afternoon we went for a leisurely walk round the Cairns botanical gardens and saw lots of really odd plants, then it was back to the hotel to get the taxi to the airport. The flight back to Cairns was uneventful, as was the taxi ride to Lisa and Lach's place. A long day, so early nights for all.
