Travels With DJ Pettitt Day 2 - Thala Beach Resort to Daintree

In what was to be the 'norm' for our entire trip we were both up by 5.30 am and out the door by 6am to catch the sunrise.  Thala Beach Resort has a private beach that was just beautiful... deserted sands, rolling waves, palm trees with coconuts and a glorious sunrise

We booked out of our room by 7.30 and headed off to Breakfast With The Birds in Port Douglas.

We entered a super huge avairy where we had a sumptuous breakfast surrounded by loads of Australian Birds, and before we left for our next stop, we wandered through the grasslands habitat, wetlands habitat...  great place... its a 'must do' if you are in the area

Lesser Sooty Owl (with lunch)
We left Port Douglas in glorious warm sunshine and headed for the Daintree River.  Sun followed us most of the way there, but while it was warm... it became quite overcast as we got closer and closer to Daintree...

We were staying at Riverview Lodges right on the Daintree River... nice accom but not as flash as our first night..another early again that night as we were booked for a 6.30am cruise on the river
