Our trio of couples from Queensland sitting around the camp fire at "Happy Hour". We needed the roofing iron in place to prevent the wind from blowing the fire away. Ashley (with back to camera), Steve, Judy, Kay, Diane and the empty chair is me.
Our three caravans after the masses had gone home. That is us on the left, Ashley and Diane centre and Steve and Kay on the right.
The Fitzroy River, looking upstream. The hardy fishers were catching good sized Bream upstream from this point.
There is only a very narrow sand dune separating the ocean from the river at this point. One hour before this photograph was High Tide and the ocean swells had breached the dune in two places. You can make out a patch of clear sand near the left, that was one breach and another has just occurred towards the right. You can just make out a small patch of white spume on the edge of the water in the river.
It is posible to see the breakers on the shore for a long distance but just off-centre is the river outlet. I could barely take these photographs along the river, the wind was storm force and I could barely keep my feet let alone keep the camera steady.
