As there was time left after our scenic flight ...

... we went into Cairns to relax, have a swim and a cold drink or two or so. Walking down the Esplanade:

It was low tide when we started.

Despite the low tide, it is not recommended to swim in the Ocean here due to the big reptiles. That´s why Cairns has a big saltwater pool ("Lagoon").

You can also have nice views of starting planes from there.

Moreover, Jarrad has placed some more precision at the southern end of the Lagoon: A heliport...

... and some beautiful signs.

Everything totally correct. Unfortunately we can´t see Mr. Marshall on the sign, probably because of the sunshine.

A huge number of bars and restaurants around the Lagoon waiting for us. Successful, I can say.

A wonderful tour around the waterfront at Cairns Gerold.:)

Very wise of you to take a dip in the lagoon.;)

All sorts of nasty creatures from Box Jellyfish to the dreaded Blind Mullet await the unwary although the latter is now a fortunate rarity these days.:o:ph34r::lol:

Thanks Martyn. After all, there are also many dangerous creatures to be seen at the Lagoon as well: Each with two long legs, and only rarely covered with textiles. People say the cause occasional heart attacks or poverty for the rest of a life filled with homework. And not even warning signs there!
