Brody had his playoff field hockey game this morning, so Scott & Brody meet up with us after his game, on the motorbike. Once again we went up the range and decided to check out Emerald Creek Falls. Janet, Bob, Hailey, Darby & I hiked to the top of the falls and back, which took about an hour. We had lunch and cooled off by the river after our hike. Hailey made a new friend with the local wildlife, a lizard.
Our next stop was Mt Uncle Distillery where we met up with Scott & Brody. We sat at the long counter and sampled three different liqueurs. My favorite was marshmallow. Brody decided on a sweet square and the girls choose milkshakes.
After exploring Emerald Creek Falls and Mt Uncle Distillery we made our way to Mareeba. One stop at Coles to pick up groceries and refreshments for our camping adventure, and we were on our way to Granite Gorge.
