This morning I probably didn't do the smartest thing considering the weather but I went off in search for a waterfall I had heard about. I have no idea what it is called but it is at the back of Edmonton, a southern suburb of Cairns which was once its own community.
Once the cement path ended I realised that my choice of footwear was maybe not the most sensible. Not being bothered I had just worn thongs, I had thought about joggers but that was as far as it got.
At the end of the path, well kind of end, there was a waterfall. Not a big one but it was a very pretty area. It was like being in the middle of a rainforest yet I knew that just a short walk away was suburbia. I had parked on a close and not walked that far at all.
After discarding my thongs and getting my feet wet I rethought my decision of footwear, it was a wise one. One thing that wasn't so wise however was not putting on insect repellent. This was mosquito haven and I think I will be paying for it over the next few days. Let me tell you a was swatting, slapping and swearing at mosquitoes like the best of them and still trying to take photos. You would think after living here over a year and a half I would know to put on the mozzie spray, EVERY TIME.
The sun came out for a bit, changing the scene, adding some light. It wasn't for long though. The clouds closed back up and I knew it would rain again soon. I kept wandering around though.
I did a little off track climbing to try and find a bit more waterfall.
I did but the mozzies were driving me nuts so a few snaps and I was headed out of there.
Back to the path, then back to the car. I think I timed it fairly well as the rain came down just as I was heading back out.
