After another good look round the pub, n seeing the most unusual n pretty flower off a jade vine that I've seen I went n a walk along the small river we were once again on the road, a small trip into Cooktown. Pretty cruisy after our challenging day yesterday on the Bloomfield Track. On the way to Cooktown we took a diversion to Archer Point, a very exposed but pretty headland. A Sth easterly wind has come up today especially noticeable near the coast. Was great to look around Cooktown, the place of so much history, was where Captain Cook had shelter while he repaired damage to his ship from the reef. We had a great tour of the Convent which is now a museum with an interesting story to tell of the region's history. The Mercy Sisters were brought from Ireland in the 1880's by the then Bishop of the region. Their time in the region was relatively short lived as the region's population declined as the Gold Rush petered out. Cooktown has a great lookout with 360 deg views, very windy up there. Ch n I had a really good look around the foreshore, watched a fishing boat unload a very impressive catch( see photos) while Anne n Bill visited some friends of Bill's sister. We caught up later 4 a further look around n a few drinks at s very nice pub which overlooked the Harbour. Later in the afternoon we headed to Endeavour Falls, our accommodation 4 the next couple of nights. We've extended our stay here 4 an extra night so we can do a 4 hr Aboriginal Tour on Mon morning which is meant to be amazing, we can't wait....
