A quick thanks to those who responded to my RFI on Thursday Island.
TI was pretty much as you suggested :-).
Incredibly hot and being a Saturday my 180 fellow cruise ship travelers
and I were somewhat surprised to find only two shops open.
However Australia's Top pub was open, which softened the disappointment a
It reminded me of Fiji in the 60's.
I did manage to see a lone Torres Strait Pigeon (Pied Imperial) fly over the
just as we set sail into a glorious sunset, which was rather special,
appropriate and a new bird for me.

I'm home at the moment, but fly back to Cairns tomorrow where I re board the
Silver Cloud and we are heading up to Alotau in Milne Bay PNG, so will get
another crack at some interesting sights.
