|The first time I tasted Vegamite|
|The first time I want to throw up Vegamite|
Luckily the day got way better from that point and our next stop was Mossman Gorge. Phoebe, Liam, their roommate Karla and I went to Mossman Gorge to take a peak of a portion of the Daintree Rainforest!
|The walkway through the Mossman Gorge is made out of recycled milk jugs!|
|It was pretty overcast and a perfect temperature.|
|TOMS in Australia|
|dipping our feet in the water|
|Liam and I were the only ones brave enough to get in the freezing cold water|
|wild scrub turkey... these are the same turkeys that were in Phoebe's tree|
|These vines looked fake|

We went to a small town called Mareeba that has a great restaurant/coffeehouse/shop called Coffee Works.
|delicious chocolate with Chili powder in it|
|This is made of chocolate!|
|this is a termite mound and is almost as tall as me|
|path to the wetlands|
We wanted to talk one of the walking paths around, but it cost a lot of money just to gain access to it. I didn't want to do it that badly and none of us had brought hats for worn sunscreen, so we passed on it.
On our way back to the car we walked passed an emu in the wild. We figured it was pretty tame and was being somewhat cared for by the people in the Wetlands information center, but it was still "in the wild" in my mind.
We also stopped on the way home at a Mango Winery to try from Mango wine, champagne, and liqueur.
|really quite delicious|
|this was along the side of the road as well. So beautiful!|
|Phoebe and I and the awesome view of the coast|
When we got home, we ordered pizza from a gourmet pizza shop in town and then watched Two Weeks Notice. Jet Lag officially conquered!
