The cable ferry over the Daintree River.
No mention of the crocodile infested water
we were crossing.
With such a short crossing one wonders
why anyone would contemplate
leaving their vehicle
I thought an unusual sign on a path.
Khama Rhino Sanctuary,
I would have thought 50 metres too close.
However, anecdotal evidence tells of
silly tourists and wild animals.
It’s a wonder hubby was wanted
after daycare at London’s Flyinghorse
these signs warn us of Koalas.
There is fair chance that…
…it would be treacherous to
swim in this water.
Queensland’s Daintree River
lurking on the shore.
the Daintree River
on this ferry/barge.
Although this crop is not very good,
one does get the idea that the sign is a warning
of crocodiles and swimming in the river.
Remain in your vehicle? Really?
Who would get out on a
relatively sideless barge while crossing
a crocodile infested river.
Sadly, someone will.
Words from all over.
further fortification about two hours down the road.
We soon cut back on hearty breakfasts
not so much to eat this food,
rather just to cut back in intake.
watched these ‘small’ pieces of ice
floating past the ship.
It wasn’t until I heard someone comment
on the length and size of a piece that I began
to think of ‘the tip of the iceberg‘.
Then I saw one piece of ice which was
not moved by the ships bow wave.
Definitely 90% submerged!
and I only discovered the seals this morning.
Adult Alaskan seals are 5-6 feet long and tip the scales
at 180-285 pounds or 80-130 kilograms.
My guesstimate is that this small piece of ice
is around 20 feet long with much
more submerged than we see here.
I think all agree that this is the
embodiment of a prehistoric creature
My first contribution to the Pic and a Word Challenge.
The Daintree River in Far North Queensland.
It is nearly five years since we visited Cairns,
the gateway to the Daintree Rainforest.
A beautiful stretch of water with some
unique ‘no swimming’ deterrents (crocodiles)
lazing in the sun.
This was a no-brainer…at least that’s what I thought.
When you are on a ferry crossing a crocodile infested Daintree River it seems common sense to follow these rules without a needing a sign to remind you.
This next sign seems to indicate the facilities are on the Sky Rail… follow the arrow.
IS the Sky Rail and I could not see room for any of those facilities within the confines of the gondolas.
