"Are you crazy" I hear you cry! Well not really, because Winter in Cairns means Sunny days, no rain, few mozzies and clear crisp nights.
Sorry to rub it in Melbourne!!
After what seemed like an eternity of rain, rain and more rain, our days are true to form sunny Qld days. The garden is finally starting to dry out and the plants will grow.
The sea has cooled down too so we can go for a swim without worrying about jelly fish and other nasties.Apparently the cooler night mean the reptile population like to sun themselves more.
On the way to Port Douglas passing over the Mowbray river last week we spied a large snoozing crocodile, about 4 metres long, this was our first sighting of a wild croc since coming to Qld, and I'm happy to say he was down on the riverbank and we were up on the bridge in the car!
