Yacht club spots a bloody big croc

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

WELSH tourist Sue Mor­gan snapped this mon­ster croc­o­dile while re­lax­ing at the Port Dou­glas Yacht Club last Thurs­day.

Some­one from the mouth of the es­tu­ary phoned the yacht club to alert them that a large croc was head­ing to­ward them.

It ar­rived to a group of peo­ple shout­ing and point­ing at the water: “Croc! Croc­o­dile! Bloody big croc!”

Mrs Mor­gan grabbed her cam­era and raced off out on to the gang-plank to grab a cou­ple of shots be­fore it swam off.

“I was so happy to get the pic­ture as I am an avid pho­tog­ra­pher, in fact wher­ever I go, my cam­era goes,” Mrs Mor­gan said.

Mrs Mor­gan and her hus­band have been hol­i­day­ing in Port Dou­glas since Oc­to­ber and will head home to Wales next month.

While hol­i­day­ing here, Mrs Mor­gan said that she and her hus­band were in­vited to a din­ner where Damien “Damo” Smith, the 40-year-old from Tas­ma­nia who was found un­con­scious in Macrossan St on Novem­ber 11, en­ter­tained ev­ery­one with won­der­ful sto­ries and very funny jokes.

“It was such a ter­ri­ble thing what has hap­pened to Damien be­cause the night were with him and a num­ber of other friends he was such a warm per­son telling fab­u­lous sto­ries and won­der­ful jokes - we all had a ball,” Mrs Mor­gan said.

“And for this to hap­pen to such a nice guy it re­ally is sad and we can only hope that he fully re­cov­ers.”
