30th June 2018 – Where is the bear… and who is Douglas?

Stiffy Bear is back with more stories about his cruise up the Queensland Coast…

Next port – Port Douglas! It was a beautiful day… first thing most of us did was go straight to the beach. There was a special area you had to swim in to make sure you didn’t get stung by any jellyfish. The man at the beach told me they can really hurt.

The beach was really wide and it didn’t have waves like we are used to at Coolangatta. It was really hot though, so everyone went for a swim to cool off.

The next thing we did was go on a steam train ride. Here is a picture of the man turning the train around so it can go the other way. They have to do this at each end. This is the Ballyhooley Steam Railway. It goes from the Marina to St Crispin’s Station. 

My daddy looks like he is going to drive! I hope he has a train driving licence… 

It sure is a pretty place at the other end. 

  The lady told us that there is a little crocodile in the lake. He got washed in during the floods and his name is “Snappy”

Anyway, we had a lovely time… and here comes our train to take us back to the Marina.

We were on our way back to the ship, when suddenly, out of the corner of my eye, I spotted a little Teddy.

His name is Douglas and he is my new friend. He is a world traveller and so he decided to come with us back to the ship.
