Today is Mary's birthday and Ann has dressed birthday bear in an outfit suitable for Mary. Bear has changed sex and is now a lovely lady who enjoys bushwalking. Ann snuck onto the balcony of Mary's cabin and left bear there for Mary early in the morning as a surprise.
So now bear is lovely and warm for the colder weather we may experience further into our mystery tour.
Naturally mary was surprised and pleased with her Birthday Bear present.
We were woken this morning to the laugh of the Kookaburras.
Then we went for a walk through the forest to the beach.
Mary, Bill, Ann (tour guide) and George.
The beach at the town of 1770 (weird name I know) James Cook landed here in 1770 to replenish his supply of fresh water.
A fabulous view and winter's morning looking at the sea.
We celebrated Mary's birthday at a roadhouse on the way to our next destination...Cania Gorge. We have never been there before and it is exciting not knowing where we are going until the beginning of each day. Ann had even organised the roadhouse to produce a birthday cake.
