Well if only the beach did look like that!!! We have now escaped from Mission Beach - four wet days are too much, and have travelled down to Airlie Beach near the Whitsundays. You'll all be pleased to know that Tropical Cyclone Nelson did not manage to get us. Still wet here though so if there aint any improvement we'll have to head south again to try to find the sun, beach and all things good. I have discovered VB beer though - very pleasant indeed and nice and strong!!
