Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

Hard­work­ing Moss­man bloke fi­nally made it to the Christ­mas break and de­cided a nice camp­ing hol­i­day was in or­der. With the mis­sus he loaded up a trailer with a bike, quad bike, camp­ing gear, es­kies etc, and set off in his 4wd, in­tend­ing for Ge­orge­town, via a few rel­lies south of Cairns. Of course it started rain­ing al­most im­me­di­ately and by Ing­ham, was get­ting se­ri­ous. Af­ter a few days vis­it­ing peo­ple he fi­nally set off for Ge­orge­town. “It was rain­ing re­ally, re­ally hard,” the hap­less va­ca­tioner told Co­conut. He phoned ahead to a mate near Ge­orge­town who told him they’d had buck­ets of rain for days and don’t bother. So he even­tu­ally turned for home. But not so easy - stopped by flood at bushy Creek, and Ri­fle Creek . . .Of course when the un­lucky cou­ple pulled up in Moss­man there were bright blue skies. Not a drop of rain. He’d driven 900 km in the rain and that was his hol­i­day . . . re­turn home so he booked a bus for a very early AM de­par­ture. They both slept through the alarms, he missed the bus so he had to get a cab… It cost him a hun­dred and ninety dol­lars. The phrase should be, some weeks are good and some are bad!
