Seaview at Cooktown

After 4 more nights camped at Cooktown Caravan Park, which was absolutely beautiful, I couldn’t handle the van in rain anymore. Because it was hot and muggy, I ran a fan all night, and between sweating in a closed up van with the canopy down, I started coughing badly and getting chills and headaches. I decided Seaview Motel was what I needed. The Motel was booked out to my dismay….but seeing my distress, they upgraded me at the basic price and I stayed here for 4 nights. It still poured and poured with heavy rain every night but safely undercover, the rain was only background but here I have soft towels, a TV and a very comfortable bed with awesome views over the water. The perfect place where I can relax completely. The Seaview has a long history of providing quality accommodation in Cooktown and is the only hotel right on the waterfront ensuring every room has a spectacular view.

Across the road from The Seaview is the Cooks Landing Kiosk, adjacent to the Boat ramp and next to the Laundry. Here I had all my meals. I told the Chef there that this was the first time I had found someone who could cook better than me and I have been well looked after especially as now I am also suffering from Heatstroke and am not very well at all. I am having 2 good meals a day and drinking lots of water, and in air conditioned accommodation, so am now feeling better, ready soon to return to Laura.

This morning it was sunny and I walked up to the esplanade and back. It is a very beautiful morning. I had breakfast and returned to my room, and lo and behold, the heavens opened and down came the rain. It is really the wet season here.
