Our Little Corner of the World...Visiting Port Douglas...

After our less than exciting stop in Cairns...our next stop was
Port Douglas.

We arrived at Port Douglas as this charming little dock area...
and from here we decided we wanted to walk to the beach.

Our first glimpse of the charming Port Douglas Beach...

Lot's of activity on the beach...

Along the walk back to the docking area, I found this unusual flower...
In the afternoon...we took a river cruise on Australia's 
version of the African Queen...
I'm really reminded me of the African Queen...
I was ready to shoot the rapids!!!

Instead...we saw the remnants of a cyclone, 
from a few years back...

...and this guy!
Just sunning himself while waiting around for a little snack...

It was a very pretty trip down the river...

...and the Captain was entertaining.

"Maybe if I get a little closer to shore, a bite will come my way..."

And then back to the ship!

To visit more little corners of the on the images below!


  1. Beautiful shots....and what a beastie!

  2. Really great pics! I wonder how that ship gets down a river? Maybe you went on a smaller boat for that part?
    That unusual flower, by the way, I don't know what it's called but one of my neighbors grows it. I keep meaning to ask.

    1. We took a smaller river boat down the river...reminiscent of the African Queen, only about twice that size.

  3. Great shots Kathryn! You sure do get around! (and I'm glad you do!)
    I think I'll try to avoid all cyclones, and alligators.

    1. I agree! Although the big guy was a crocodile not an alligator! Being in Australia was interesting...a very friendly country people wise, and just about every plant, bug, reptile, and animal that can kill you!

  4. Got to love those crocs!

    1. I'm amazed at how many critters in Australia can kill you Stewart!!!

  5. I love these, very beautiful. A great selection of livestock.

  6. The white flower is stunning! Thanks for sharing this beautiful tour.
