I hate to do this to those of you who have toughed out the winter without escaping north, but Farmdoc and I have just returned from ten days in Far North Queensland and I can't help gloating. It was so beautiful it was almost impossible to take photos: they all looked like such cliches. These three were taken from our room on Dunk Island.
We swam, we ate too much, we paddled a kayak through turquoise water, we climbed to the highest point on the island - the top of Mount Kootaloo - to admire the view.
We trekked through the National Park that covers most of the island, and discovered tucked away beaches.
I apologise for this post.
