Hello from Coquette Point,
The rainforest is holding its breath as we sit in the steamy doldrums. Occasionally the leaves at the very top of the rainforest canopy rustle and then as if the effort was to much they still and return to droop in the heat. The monsoon has moved north and we wait its return and the rain it will bring. The next surge in the Monsoon should come with the new moon.
Grace Uhr journalist and photographer Stewart Mc Lean of the Cairns Post visited Coquette Point this week to do a story on the Little Tern.
Stewart was interested in taking a photo of a crocodile and he asked me where to see one in the wild. I said “No trouble we will go down to the beach in front of my house there are always crocodiles there!” He thought I was joking but right on cue Midget was sunbaking in the shallows. Of course Stewart was hoping to get a photo of something bigger than the 1.5metre Midget but Charlene was hiding.
