Storms and Wet Weather Cooktown

The sun was shining and the world was bright, but I remembered yesterday when around 4pm, the sky went dark and the rain just poured down. I walked across the road in the rain to get dinner. A passing car drove through a puddle at the side of the road, and I was drenched. I still went across the road to find the Kiosk completely blown to bits with rain and all was safely locked and closed. I walked back in the rain as I was already soaking wet and would have had no dinner except for a friendly couple in the next room who let me go down with them in their car to the Bowling Club.

Remembering how quickly the weather changed yesterday, I noticed the sky darkening, and the water all brown and the light startling, and I quickly captured the changing scene. I finished my dinner, took photos, asked for a plastic bag for the camera and started to walk across the road back to Seaview, and down came the rain. I was drenched again….in warm heavy bucketfuls of rain all the way back to the top.
