As Good as it Gets!

After all the monsoon weather we have had here in the Whitsundays over the last few months, Huey has made up for it with some magnificent weather over the last week!
This is the view from Airlie Beach and today it was nearly perfect conditions to capture it. The noticeable absence in this scene is people! Normally this beach would have many more people on a day like this but the tourism industry which is the town’s major industry is doing it tough at the moment. Never seen the place so quiet!
GFC, high exchange rates, flooding etc have combined to hit the area for a six. But the good news is that we are well and truly open for business!

In the immortal words of Lara Bingle “So, where the bloody hell are you?”

    • Improving all the time, still a way to go yet though mate. You must be waiting to pounce judging by the speed of that comment! 🙂

    • Thanks Andrew, a few puffy white clouds would have been the icing on the cake. For a change, the atmosphere is too dry!

    • That it is Tony, Huey must have heard me and decided to send a cyclone our way!!

        Yeah mate – at least at this stage the prognosis for TC Anthony is to remain on the weaker end of the TC spectrum rather than destructively severe. No doubt like all TC (esp NQ) some areas will get a dump of rain though. No other significant lows expected to form in the coral sea in the outlook period though.
        Good luck and keep dry mate 🙂

  6. Great blues there Tim, sounds like now is the perfect time to visit:)

    • Thanks Ben, looks like we have 1 possibly 2 cyclones about to give us a bit of a dust up over the next week or so!
