CYCLONE!!!!

We went to Cardwell to HIDE from a CYCLONE!!!!!! We had to get the boat lifted out of the water.Near Airlie beach the winds got up to 260km/h(we started at Airlie Beach)!!! We saw a 4.5m crocodile on the front beach of Cardwell!!! It lived in a creek called sandfly(itchy)creek and the locals see it regularly and called it Hugo. We saw Australia’s biggest free falling waterfall that was 268m high(cool). We dropped Akira off at the Cairns airport(goodbye Akira).

Please welcome the new member of the team AKIRA. Akira is sailing with us from Townsville to Cairns. We have been snorkelling 24/7 and saw four sharks, a sting ray and I saw two puffer fish. A few days ago I saw a stone fish and we caught a thrasher (shark) in our crab net. Last night we saw a dugong !!!! Now we are on Magnetic island and are going to sail to the Palm islands.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We also saw a giant Trevally  and some nemos. We had stinger suits on because we were swimming with IRA KANJI ( a jellyfish that can kill you if it touches your skin). On the way back to the Whitsunday Islands we hit a big storm and in the morning we found a squid in our dingy( petit bateau). Now we are sailing to Hook Island.
