Warm wel­come in Port

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

MY­SELF and my fam­ily have re­cently re­lo­cated from the Sun­shine Coast to the beau­ti­ful town­ship of Port Dou­glas and let me just say that the tran­si­tion has been ab­so­lutely won­der­ful.

Ally my wife and I came up for a hol­i­day in late Oc­to­ber and, as they say, we fell in love with the place.

The warm friendly at­mos­phere cre­ated by the lo­cals re­ally be­came ap­par­ent to us while watch­ing the World Cup fi­nal at the Cen­tral Ho­tel.

They made us feel wel­come and we re­ally slipped straight into the laid­back way of life, even if it was only for a brief week.

Three months later, here we are, now lo­cal res­i­dents, and have not looked back since.

My wife has se­cured work with a lo­cal cof­fee shop, as has my son with Rat­tle “n” Hum, while I con­tinue to work FIFO for Rio Tinto in Western Aus­tralia.

It is a great com­fort­ing thought that my newly re­lo­cated fam­ily feel wel­come and at home here in Port Dou­glas and would like to thank the lo­cals for their kind­ness and help­ful­ness as we slip into what I be­lieve to be a great life­style here in the Far North.

A spe­cial thanks to Kris­tan and Lor­raine for helpling us out all the way dur­ing our re­lo­ca­tion and to Re­becca Greig from LJ Hooker here in Port Dou­glas for our trou­ble-free hous­ing needs.

Lov­ing it: Dy­lan Sharpham at the Port Dou­glas skate park
