We soon arrive at Cooktown the Northern most destination of our tour. What a pretty spot it is by the river and the sea.
This is where Captain Cook took refuge to repair his ship the Endeavour after putting a hole in it on the reef back at Cape Tribulation.
In the late 1960s they found the anchor and cannons that they jettisoned to stay afloat while they limped to safe harbour. One of the cannons and the anchor are now kept in the museum at Cooktown and in the park there is a monument and a statue of Cook.
I loved Cooktown. We are going to linger a while here.
