It was raining when I woke up this morning. It’s been raining for days. I left my crocheting, packed my library books into my recently acquired dry bag, and jumped on my recently acquired bike to ride to the library anyway. Cycling past the lush botanic gardens, catching glimpses of map clutching tourists, I arrived at my normal bike path around the little suburban mountain to find it flooded. I started gingerly making my way through, it’s stillwater and it’d probably only get to below my knees. Then I remembered where I was. Croc territory. At least theoretically. The creek that has flooded its banks has one of those friendly, mildly terrifying croc warnings signs. I retreated and took one of the multiple, well maintained bike highways that crisscross the whole city. ‘City’. They call it that. Cute. It has the essence of a city, but it’s not one. Bonsai city maybe. So I cycled merrily along the bike path, getting wet, not caring, vaguely thinking I should buy a lightweight rain poncho. I get wet a lot these days. And it doesn’t even start in my pants. 😆😉😝 I love cycling. I think that every time I ride. I ride regularly. I giggle with glee riding into the wind & rain. Arrived at library, returned books, holed up in a cafe to drink a soy chai latte ‘cause it was pissing down & I prefer moist, not drenched. 😄
It’s the Autumn Equinox, I arrived in Cairns exactly 2 months ago. I have an address, a pantry & fridge & freezer full of organic, nutritious food, more plants than I’ve ever owned in my life, & a job that starts whenever they conclusively prove to themselves I’m not a criminal.😆 It appears I’m staying for a while- at least ‘til I’ve eaten all my food supplies... and I just ordered $300 worth of organic bulk goods, so it’ll be a while! 😉
I have much to say about my perception of this place, but it’ll have to wait, the rain’s paused & I gotta dash!
Happy new seasons my loves, may this be a series of steps into more & more joy and delight. Life is delicious. 😉🧡
Cyclone Trevor is hundreds of kilometers away from Port Douglas, but we're still getting very heavy rain as a consequence of that weather event.
It's still warm of course, and pretty good weather for enjoying a leisurely brunch in one of Port Douglas's delightful cafés.
This was the brunch burger at @thelittlelarderportdouglas and it was delicious! Pulled pork, crunchy slaw, chipotle mayo.
🏡Getting out of D-Town?
Your garden a big sticking point🤔
Darwin maybe in the middle of a down turn & selling your house maybe a bit of a struggle.😫 Make your property stand out👌 by having a garden thats appeasing and not a tropical jungle that potential buyers run away from🏃♀️ I work with Real estate agents and private clients ensuring their gardens look appeasing & sell able! 👌Book in an onsite garden consultation at your property and lets get it on the market asap!
When I was in Ngukurr a few weeks back I was just shocked to see the water level in the rivers. We’ve had such a bad wet season here and rivers have barely come up! No plane rides for me as everything is still accessible by road 😩😋 let’s see if the cyclone will bring us some much needed rain (without too much damage obviously)... #bringonthewater#wetseason#cyclonetrevor#northernterritory#cyclone
