Wet Driving - Part 1.

We decided to head off to Cairns and the Atherton Tablelands for the last weekend before I go back to work on Monday.

Cardwell

Could not have picked a worst weekend as once past Cardwell we hit torrential rain and did begin to wonder if we would be able to get home due to flooding. It appears that X-Tropical Cyclone Hadi was crossing the Far North Queensland coast and dumping a huge amount of rain. 


The clouds were so low they looked as if they were just skimming the tops of the cane fields. 


Walsh's Pyramid had large waterfalls cascading down it's sides.


Rivers were high enough to make any traveller wary.........but we kept going!


Coming into Cairns the traffic was light but the cloud cover heavy.
Visited friends, brought a few plants for the garden then headed off to Yungaburra on the tablelands.

Come back and visit for more later in the week.
