F for Flight, and Fish
Scenic flights in Cairns by helicopter.
Finally I am back again and I guess it’s the letter “F” this Wednesday that is going to dominate our blogs. Well that’s not so difficult for it is the first letter of flight. Our flight to Hong Kong was on 15th July. It was very uneventful and we arrived right in time in Hong Kong where we stayed for 16 hours in a dayroom in a good hotel.(Our flight from Australia to Hong Kong, however, was very chaotic. I'll tell you later about it.) On Thursday 17th July, we arrived in Cairns without delay. We rented a car and stayed another week in Cairns.Then we went to Cooktown where my daughter lives with her family.
We went fishing on the beach with my daughter's aboriginal relatives and lit a fire to brew tea in a billy, which is very Australian.
Lateron in the week we went fishing on the Reef. I caught one fish and decided to take photos during the rest of the time. My daughter's youngest child caught 4 fish which made him very happy. The biggest fish was called a mother-in-law- fish!! The smallest fish had a mouth with three rows of very sharp teeth. It was called a coral cod.
