This is about my holiday from Cairns to
Laura, on the lower Cape York Peninsula from
September 2008 to October 2008. Going from Melbourne to Cairns to Port Douglas, to Cooktown and Laura, Cape Tribulation and all the bits in between, and finally back to Cairns for my flight home.

16. Cairns - Bush Dancing

Monday 22 September

Back after our night walk and the campfire with the resident swagman, it's time for a spot of dancing - bush dancing. The old time stuff that our ancestors used to do. The "Swagman" called for volunteers to show how the Heel and Toe was done, and me having learnt, and done, a fair bit of dancig in my time, volunteered. And great fun it was too. Below are some photos, the first being the "Demonstration"!

Heel and Toe

So, let's start - and it's heel and toe, heel and toe...

Slide, slide, slide, slide....

Heel and toe, heel and toe
Slide, slide, slide, slide....

Right hand clap, left hand clap
Both hands clap, clap on lap...
And... swing your partner 'round.
