Stewy, Kristy and Rori arrived in Cooktown yesterday with their new engine in the car! Was good to see them again and feel bad that they missed so much of the trip, but at least we will get to spend a few days together. The weather was terrible and none of us felt like cooking so we headed into one of the pubs for dinner and had a great meal.
Today we had a walk around town and went to see the sights of Cooktown (wasn't a lot of fun in the constant pouring rain!). Saw Ron & Viv Moon in the souviner shop in town, which was a nice surprise - any 4WDer or camper will know who they are!
Paid a visit to the cemetery which I was more than happy to do, even though we spent hours there last time we were in Cooktown! I love cemeteries and can spend hours walking around them!!
After just visiting Cape York, one of the gravesites we were interested in seeing was Elizabeth Jardine. Elizabeth was the wife of John Jardine, who established "Port Somerset" near the tip of Cape York in 1864.
Some of the other more interesting graves in this cemetery are:
Arrived at the Lions Den Hotel and checked into our accommodation for the night, how cool are these!!
