After spending two weeks driving across the bone-dry Outback, it felt great to reach the coast. I planted myself here in Port
Douglas for nearly a week and had a good time visiting the Daintree rainforest, swimming on the Great Barrier Reef, savoring the
balmy weather and tropical downpours, and, of course, updating my website. I liked everything about Port
Douglas -- except the deadly box jellyfishes that frequent the beaches here.
