Port Douglas 2013 - Cairns Mangrove Boardwalk

Robin went sea kayaking on Friday morning. The expedition began at Oak Beach, south of Port Douglas, and finished at Four Mile Beach covering a sea distance of approximately 12 km. They saw a variety of fish and turtles and probably a dugong, though it disappeared very quickly.

I took the opportunity to once again explore the shops and then spent one and a half hours walking along the beach before returning to the Regal for a final swim in the pool.
In the afternoon we returned to Ngarru Gallery where we purchased two paintings.

Having packed our bags, on Saturday morning, we went for a final walk, for this visit, along Macrossan Street including the park at one end 
and the beach at the other.

We then drove towards the Cairns Airport. 

As we had a little time to spare we went for a walk along the Jack Barnes Bicentennial Mangrove Boardwalk.
Some of the mangroves had incredible root systems
Occasionally small crabs
and mud whelks (Telescopium) could be seen.
We then continued to the airport for the flight home.
