Left Canberra before dawn with a temp at -4 degrees to fly to warmer places. Plane delayed for 20 minutes while the ground crew de-iced the wings and tail. Travel arrangements changed last night by the airline, now leaving 10 minutes earlier and travelling via Sydney instead of Brisbane. Didn't matter as I arrived in Cairns and hour earlier. Plane trips uneventful.
Arrived in sunny Cairns wearing far too many clothes, nice day, with plenty of sunshine and a light sea breeze. A few day of this will be perfect.
Met by brother at airport, good to him and later rest of the family. Late afternoon we went for a short jog to get the legs moving after siting in the plane for half a day.
A short but hilly run through the suburb with a nice little hill in the mix. However, a man with a barking dog said it was private property, no signs but with great views of the city centre and out to sea. May give his area a miss in future.
