I woke this morning to the sound of the rain bucketing down outside and the wind blowing its heart out, so I decided to go soft and stay another day in Cooktown.

Strong winds and 2 metre seas made the ride to Cooktown an interesting one.

This morning before I left Snapper Island I went off for my daily constitution and was confronted by the biggest spider I've ever seen!
25 March: Snapper Island – 21km 3 Hours.
It sometimes felt like this day was never going to come, but I’m finally on the water, well actually on an island. I made it a nice easy paddle, there’s no need to kill myself on the first day.
23 March: Cairns . . . Finally!
Late yesterday afternoon it become obvious that once darkness set in, the authorities weren’t going to let any cars through the floods.
22 March: Ayr
21 March: Airlie Beach.
