they were just everywhere.”
The minke whales have been enjoying themselves in our waters as well, with several sightings including a sighting of a calf.
“The minkes have been fantastic, earlier in the week a young minke calf was throwing itself around to such an extent it’s stomach was pink from slapping on the water - calves are a rarity for the general public,” Mr Hore said.
And the elusive white humpback whale Migaloo could be in our waters very soon as Mr Hore said there have been sightings of him in the southern end of the Greater Barrier Reef two weeks ago. STUDENTS received a fright on Tuesday morning when a drunk driver who was almost six times over the legal limit failed to give way in front of Mossman State High School and collided with another car.
The incident occurred at 8.30am when the 53-year-old Mossman man drove his fourwheel-drive straight through the intersection from Johnson St onto Front St and collided with another four-wheel-drive.
Fortunately there were no injuries and only the cars suffered damage.
Mossman police breathalysed the man who had an alcohol reading of .294 and was charged with drink-driving and failing to give way and has had his licence automatically suspending pending his court hearing on August 8.
He had to be kept at the police station overnight as he was too intoxicated to be released.
