Mariella and I planned to take a big walk after being at sea for two full days. It was Mariella’s birthday on Flag Day, June 14. The wait for a tender was slow. We got the second one because we were independent and not on a tour. The pilot lead us into the island.
We followed a 10,000 step walk on a route around Thursday Island.
We passed some traditional Australian scenes.
Thursday Island is a governmental center for the islanders in this northern area with schools on the island.
There was beautiful seaside land scape and a historic cemetery with historic Japanese graves of their pearl divers.
Along with the native sites. The colorful headstones were interesting and different.
We finished our walk back into town and visited the cultural center.
It was a lovely afternoon with another sea day the following day. Peace out Namaste Tres.

Happy Birthday, Mariella! What a great way to celebrate your Birthday! Cici & Darren
