Cape Tribulation is a funny name for such a beautiful place. Also Mountain Sorrow. I was wondering about the reason for those horrible names and got my answer from google: Captain Cooke and his crew ran aground (is that the right word for that?) on the great barrier reef and threw all of his monition, a lot of the ship equipment and most of the food in the sea so the ship became lighter. The next high tide washed them on land and they could start fixing the ship. But during that time most of his man died and he could leave only with a few man and a patched ship.
Sofia beschloß den Strand und das Meer zu genießen und ein wenig zu entspannen, während wir anderen drei eine kleine Wanderung unternahmen.
Good thing we didn't have bad expirience like captain Cooke. For us it was one of the most beautiful places in Australia. Here you can still see how the rainforrest meets the sea, like on very few places at the earth.
While Sofia enjoyed just to relax at the beach, the three of us went to do a little hike.
Andy wanted at any price a fresh coconut. That's why we had to search underneath every promising palmtree, he tried to climb a palmtree and they threw forever rocks against coconuts - without success. Only on the end of our trip we found a good coconut lying on the ground.
We had a very good time here, even with the water beeing pretty cold sometimes, thanks for the advice, Dave!
|At nighttime we saw lots of flighing foxes. Abends sahen wir viele fliegende Hunde (das ist eine Fledermausart), genauso wie vorher in Litchfield und auf der ganzen Streckevon da an.|
