Sunday 23rd April 2017

SHE SAID:

OMG, the rain has stopped! Well not till after 11am, but for the rest of the day we saw blue skies!

We made the most of the opportunity & headed for South Mission & Wongaling Beaches for a look around. Geoff spotted a Cassowary, which had just crossed the road with 2 chicks...excitement!

There were good views of Dunk Island from both South Mission Beach & Wongaling. I hope we can do a day trip over there whilst we are here.
