Driving north from Cairns, we encountered some scarry crocodiles and also a lovely beach. It's unclear if the two are related.
The beach was totally deserted.

Morning flight from Singapore to Cairns on Silk Air MI 813.

This should have been a six hour flight but unfortunately we were diverted to Makasar Indonesia. There was an onboard emergency. Everything seemed to end up ok, but it made our journey just a bit longer. We arrived in Cairns late Sunday night and we are staying at the Holliday Inn for two nights. Here's the view from the room early Monday morning.
