At last! A current resident of Cairns to help with the details! It's been far too long since I've been there, so I've had to rely on memories, old photographs, and topo maps.
Question 1: What hills west of Cairns do give a view of town? The last time I was there, I wasn't keeping track. The way I see it, Iverson might get the name wring, but MacKiernan is the ships navigation officer, so he'd be expected to know these things.
Question 2: How far inland does the harbor extend? What streets are even with the western port of the basin? I only wandered around the eastern part and never thought to explore further. Is there a better side-street than Mulgrave to drive expensive touring cars off of?
I could try to claim that wombat escaped from a marsupial dealership (Mike's World of Diprotodontia Bargains?
), but that would be silly. We saw so many of the darn things in NSW we assumed they were everywhere. I suppose I should change it to an opossum. They're supposed to be nocturnal, but maybe this one was heading home late after a wild all-day party
As far as that Swans lager goes, I did try to make sure it only appeared on the R-67 and the... uh... er... Tranquility
out of respect for the inhabitants of Queensland, but I'm sure I slipped up in places. Please feel free to post a list of Episodes and I'll start de-Swan-alizing them. Thanks in advance!
I prefer VB myself, but it's hard to find here in the States. Alas.
