I went for a ride around the very quiet and empty streets of Townsville.

This is Castle Hill at the back of Townsville. I thought about climbing the hill for the view and my lazy body decided against it.

Most shops were closed. The Maritime Museum of Townsville was open. It was a moderate size and had lots of interesting models and exhibits. 

27 different knots.

This is a Jukong vessel. It was used in the coconut industry in Cocos (Keeling) Islands.

It's a wonderful island in the middle of the Indian Ocean. 

Serena and I were married there!

In the afternoon, I was reading in the camp kitchen. 

This is the ceiling of the camp kitchen.

A gecko is hiding in the cracks. 

He pooed on my arm!

At least I wasn't cooking.

Later, without any negative experiences from geckos, I made dinner.

Dinner was chicken and corn soup with extra veggies.
