Our S.S. Minnow Adventure...

We cruised out to the edge of the Great Barrier Reef for a snorkelling adventure when we were in Cairns in December 2004 (sigh...it seems so long ago now!). On the way we were fortunate to watch this storm come in:



Although once it started to hit us...



We weren't feeling so fortunate!

    Storms there tend to have this habit of creeping up on you without a lot of warning. It must have been thrilling too!

    Carolyn: Well we definitely made it back safe and sound. Though we didn't go on any more boats for the rest of our trip :)

    Alana: we found it thrilling at first...but were pretty relieved to be on dry land again! It certainly did creep up quickly - the sky was completely clear when we left in the morning.

    Thanks for dropping by :)
