The Big Wet
Well the recent deluges as a result of monsoonal activity and the subsequent rainfall have returned our creeks to their resplendent best! Hunter’s Creek which runs right through Sweetwater is just stunning. On our walk down to the creek yesterday morning and with water raging past we watched our platypus at play in the rapids! Too good not to jump in and have a swim too, just stunning. Our private rainforest walk is a joy after the rain.
No rain so far today so hopefully drying out a bit, but the area, despite needing a clean up especially on the surrounding main roads due to landslides, is so much better for the rain. This is precisely as it should be here in the tropics. Many a happy local! The inconvenience of temporarily flooded roads is very quickly overlooked by the resultant splendour of the landscape and its eco-systems. Birds and wildlife loving it too.
