Silky Oaks

We arrived at Silky Oaks on Wednesday the 20th of September, 2006. It was two days before the wedding. Our Riverhouse was the farthest from the hotel reception. We were taken there on the cutest electric powered buggy. Silky Oaks is all about eco-tourism.

Giles and I spent the afternoon of our arrival on the balcony of our Riverhouse, drinking complimentary champagne and eating the complimentary fruit platter.

Champagne tastes much better on a warm balcony in the canopy. V. Swiss Family Robinson.

Eat Relax Eat Sleep Eat Relax Eat Sleep Eat ... You WILL NOT lose weight here.

This is the view of the Treehouse Restaurant @ Silky Oaks.

The Jungle Perch is a fish that swims in the emerald waters of the Mosman River that runs out of the Daintree Rainforest and past Silky Oaks. You can see the restaurant from here. Giles and I spent a few lazy afternoons out here staring at the green everywhere while sipping from an espresso, delivered by the resident barista.

Giles and I enjoyed the buffet breakfast each morning. It's the first time I've ever liked a buffet breakfast. This was something we did our best of make it to every day. This can get hard when you shift your day a few hours.
