Yummy Tropical Fruit

Sunday in Melbourne today is certainly different to last Sunday in Cairns. The temperature only got to 17c and it is freezing, a real wintery day. But it’s not winter till the end of this month. I actually love winter; to me it is a season that is cosy, warm PJ’s in front of the telly and the heater on. But I guess it is because I have had 2 ½ weeks of 28c – 30c hot humid weather that even though the heater was on I just couldn’t get warm. So I have spent the day unpacking, washing and looking at some of my T.V shows taped for me. I’m now watching the “Logies”, which for my non-Aussie friends; the Logies is the award show for our T.V industry.

Mmmm I just love tropical fruit, wish we could get them in Melbourne.
Mangosteen – I can’t describe what they taste like, except to me it’s  the sweetest nicest fruit I have ever tasted.
Custard Apple – This is also a really sweet fruit, but the texture wasn’t something I would jump to often.
Rusty’s Markets is Cairns local fruit and vegie markets, open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The produce there was absolutely beautiful and all the stalls have tasting of all the fruits on their stands.
So on Friday morning I arrived having not having had breakfast, so I did a typical backpacker thing to do and walked around the different stalls tasting. Mmmm such a lovely yummy fresh and healthy breakfast – very cheap too.

"Davine Time" update: Curled up in front of the telly under a nice warm blanket.
