We stopped for lunch and then headed off to Paronella Park. This place was amazing and I’m so glad Ming told me to visit, because I’d never heard of it and might have missed out! It’s hard to describe and even my photos don’t really do the place justice. It’s an old castle, built in the 1930’s by a Spaniard named Jose Paronella.
On our way back to Cairns we did a quick stop at the Babinda Boulders, which are just, well, boulders in a river. They look neat, but they’re not all that impressive, at least not to me. As we drove back the sun was setting behind the mountains and coloring all the beautiful sugarcane fields in the valleys in a beautiful, gold-tinted light. It really was a sight to see. Brett dropped us back off in Cairns and I said so long to Edwina. She’s off down the coast and then home to Germany in the next couple of weeks. It was a nice tour and I enjoyed having someone with which to do the tour. I’ve decided to stay in Cairns for at least another week in hopes that one of the many jobs I’ve applied for will pan out and I won’t have to move somewhere else and start searching over again. Only time will tell I guess…..
