Day 17 - Rest day 1 at Cooktown

A relaxing day visiting the sights of Cooktown. The lighthouse (built in about 1885), and the gun that was obtained to defend against the possible Russian expansion around the same time. The gun was actually cast in 1805, and Cooktown got to use the single one to defend against Russia 80 years later.
Then Scott and Julie were sitting on the wharf, and a local fisherman, having caught too much for his dinner gave them a huge fish for dinner. As they were going out Georgi filleted it and we had a few fillets for dinner.
