FNQ: Day 9: Tuesday 2 May 2006

3 05 2006

A very lazy day today. Dropped Dave off in Cairns early in the morning as he's presenting a half day pre-conference workshop. Packed. Dropped off rental car. Read a bit. Waited until 2:15 when the shuttle bus picked us up and took us to Cairns to the conference hotel – the Rydges Tradewinds on the Esplanade. Unpacked. Wandered about the hotel getting our bearings. Walked along the Esplanade boardwalk to the public swimming area, then had an ice-cream on the way back (I had Ginger with Fig and Honey – delicious! and loads of dried/crystallised ginger and figs in the mix too).

In the evening some of the conference speakers and veterans had dinner at the Rattle and Hum Bar and Grill along the Esplanade. I had the barramundi but it was nowhere near as nice as the barra I had in Palm Cove the night before. After dinner we all wandered back to the Rydges and had a drink before retiring.
