Bring on the la­goon

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

WE ARE reg­u­lar Kiwi vis­i­tors to Port Dou­glas and we would love a la­goon in Port for our grand­kids and all other lit­tle chil­dren to play in safety.

We are not just fly-by-nighters, we have been com­ing to Port ev­ery year for 10 years. Why do we keep com­ing back? Well what started our love af­fair with Port back in 2001 was me ac­ci­dently over­hear­ing a wo­man at a Ro­tary meet­ing.

They were de­bat­ing on how they were go­ing to spend the money they had raised.

She wanted to spend it on mak­ing the pave­ments more ac­ces­si­ble to strollers for the grow­ing num­ber of fam­i­lies vis­it­ing Port and also for wheel­chair users.

This, I thought, is my kind of place, these are lo­cal peo­ple I’d like to spend time with.

So in the past 10 years the old hanger on and my­self have been back to Port 10 times.

Ev­ery year we have no­ticed an in­crease in the num­ber of strollers and pre-school­ers on hol­i­day.

How won­der­ful it would be to have a to­tally safe gor­geous la­goon where all our lit­tle kids could safely en­joy the sea, and, just as im­por­tant, their par­ents could re­lax. Please Port Dou­glas build a La­goon. Build it next to the Sun­day mar­ket if pos­si­ble.

Give it a Great Bar­rier Reef and rain­for­est theme.
