Our first day and all Ella & Charlie want to do is play in the pool or go to the beach so naturally we were obliging parents! We drove into Cairns and went to Muddy’s children’s park/water play on the esplanade in the morning. They had a fantastic time.

In the afternoon we lazed by the pool at our apartments, Charlie is fearless but Ella prefers to stay where her feet can touch the bottom. Later we took a stroll down to the beach where this time Ella was in the water fully clothed and Charlie ran as soon as the water came near him. We had dinner in one of the beachfront restaurants which was lovely.
We were all exhausted – Alan & I both fell asleep putting the kids to bed so felt much better when they decided to wake this morning at 5:15!
