Jottings from the Tropics: 13 July 2012

I am beginning to suspect that Mount Bartle Frere has decided to take off for other climes. I haven't seen it for a while. Sure, it might be masked by the constant rain that dropped by on the weekend and has now settled in like a freeloader. But if I were that mountain, I'd have headed for somewhere with big blue skies.

Here's the mountain in earlier times, when it was still part of the range and the sky was big and blue(ish). The view is from the cafe at the Nerada Tea Plantation, Glen Allyn. This is a great place to grow tea. (And ducks. It's a great place to grow ducks.)

Beautiful blue sky! I definitely need to be reminded what any blue sky looks like - and the BOM is promising rain for the next two days!

Oh, mick, bad luck. It's down to drizzle here, but that's not much better than flat out rain.

I'm planning to take many photos when the weather clears, just so I've got a reference!
