My husband and son have just returned from their week camping and canoeing in North Queensland and I thought I'd share some of their photos with you.
On the banks of the Burdekin River. This paperbark must have been knocked over like this in a flood some time. Don't you just love the twisted trunks?
A lookout on the Atherton Tableland. They actually took a video from here, but I don't know how to put it on a blog. the scenery is gorgeous.
The Tully River Gorge -- so peaceful in this section, but there's very popular white water rafting further down the Tully.
Callistemons (Bottlebrush) on the Burdekin. They look a little faded in this photo but they can be spectacular.
There's nothing quite like cooking on a campfire. (The plastic containers keep everything dry in the canoe, but kind of spoil the outback ambience in a photo, don't they?)
And home again... the view from our balcony. At least it's a view of the sky... at sunset. We actually face the east and the sea, but the clouds reflect the sunset in the west. Gorgeous.
Meanwhile I have not finished my book, although I have given it a thorough overhaul and it's in better shape than it was a week ago. I just have to find the best way to end it -- always the hardest scene for me. How to make it fresh and different from every other ending????
