It rained all night and when the alarm went off for the Dawn Service, it was still raining and dark and dismal. So I went back to bed. When I woke up again it was 6.30 and the sky was streaked with a red sunrise.

Today the sunrise is purples and pinks. I walk down to the river and see the small jetty here and look across to Mt Cook on the right and the Jetty on the left. The river has crocodiles so I must not walk to the edge. The house on the other corner has put upContinue reading “Sunrise 16 April Endeavour River”

Camping is easy at Rainbow Beach. You make a booking at National Parks at the cost of $6.50 a night, and armed with your permit you head for Inskip and search for the area you have your permit for. I booked into Dorrigo as that was the only campsite available for 2WD. The other campContinue reading “Rainbow Beach Queensland”
