The small crabs kept us entertained as they were EVERYWHERE!
We walked super far so we had a private beach to ourselves!
I LOVE THE BEACH!!
After roasting for a couple hours, we headed in to meet
Suze and Mark for round 2 at Rattle Hum!
And we found our Melbourne friends again as it's a very small town!!
They taught us all about Vegemite (food paste made from yeast extract)!
Gabe is smiling here, note it's BEFORE he tried it.
Then our evening got exciting by going to the Cane Toad Races!
Cute little guys before the race
The festivities begin by doing everything in your power to get the toad to jump off the table without your hands. It required a lot of skill and/or obnoxious noises.
I was chosen to be the score keeper
It was a Port Douglas crowd pleaser!
After the show was over, majority of the restaurants were closed, and were thrilled to find Porto's Pizza still serving food as we hadn't eaten!
He was trying to describe what capsicum was and finally had to show me!
Ah-ha! *We call that red/green peppers!
Check out these pizzas -
We let the Aussies order and said we were along for the ride!
Half Aussie (ham, bacon, onion, and egg) and Half Cassius Clay
"The Aussie" pizza was a little too strange for us, but BBQ sauce with pesto, capers, and pepperoni on a pizza was AMAZING!! I went to bed fat and happy after this meal and a long day in the sun!
Our Great Barrier Reef trip is next!
