Shrimp is Sylvie's latest insult ("ah, ya shrimp"), but when she applied it to the "island" at Sudbury Reef, we think she was using it as a term of endearment. We hung off a Parks mooring (go Parks!) on this tiny cay off the coast of Cairns for a couple of magical days.

She's right - there ain't much to it.
Although the kids have planted out and fertilised a Coconut Grove.
And the added joy of Trout. This is Malachy's first independent trout.


  1. unless Reminy is standing on a box, I think she is now 1/2 an inch taller than you, Liss!
    Budi: the trouble with catching a lovely coral trout so young is that it's going to ruin you for life. trust me.
    love your pictures and your stories...

  2. Budster, congratulations. Magic trout and as well the marlin. I didnt even see one in all the time we were in NQ. Great fishing. Now you can teach me!Poppy

    Love all your blogs, kids.
