Another Day in Sunny Cairns

Although Cairns is an incredibly packed full of tourist, it still is a beautiful area. If coming here though, I would suggest going a bit north or south of town and go to some amazing beaches.

Some of the local wild life.

We saw some more mud skippers and had a tiny tiny lizard visit us in the hotel.

It's gone to the birds

Boats and sky

The clouds finally lifted in Cairns, nice weather, but more of a sunburn risk.

Run, Run, Run, Far away from Hides in Cairns

The hotel that we stayed at this last night (and unfortunately tonight, but at least this way we wont get docked any money) is the Hides in Cairns. It was possibly the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The knobs for the shower were out side of the shower, and not within arms reach, at least not for me... But with our sob story in hand, we were able to get a room at the Hilton, and not just any room, but an upgraded room to the second highest floor, with a spa bath! So all is good.

Okay, I think I might love the camera

On the way to uni today I saw two kookaburras and I was able to grab my bag and get the camera and get some photos. I still really miss the raw file system, but the small size is great.

I really miss the raw mode...

New Point and Shoot

So I went and got a new point and shoot camera so that I could take more photos more on the fly. Not sure how I like the photo outcomes, but we'll see. I think I'm just missing the raw capabilities. Then again maybe this will make me learn how to better use the manual settings. I wont be able to "fix" the photos like I use to... Here are some of the first takes.
