NB I have not been able to post a blog for 5 nights. A lot has happened since then.
What a great day we have had. A little shopping in Mareeba to stock up with food for 2 weeks.
I was lucky to be able to speak to both ladies who had helped me with research about Charles
Desailly. Shelline is the Heritage Officer for Mareeba Council and Elwyn is a very knowledgable
local Historian who had grown up in the area. I called to thank both of these ladies for their help.
Travelling west of Mareeba took us through Sugar cane plantations some of which were being harvested.
