The Day of Rest
22.06.2008 73 °F
After all the hard yakka of the past week we decided it was time for a bit of spine bashing what with it being Sunday and all. We started the day by attending Mass at the local church in Port Douglas. The musicians were unavailable so it was a “quiet” Mass, fairly common in Australia. What was not common was the priest reminding the congregation that many of the attendees were tourists, the local bus stop was a fair walk from the church and taxis often did not show up to collect people after services so to look around and see who could use a ride back into town. Nice to see the concept of we are all one people put into action in a small but appreciated manner.
The rest of the day was spent strolling through town, checking out the wares at the Sunday Craft Market and eating our way through the local cuisine, including the infamous “Violet Crumble”.
WOTD: Spine bashing - resting, loafing.
