Heatwaves

We have had some seriously hot weather here in Queensland this past week. Yesterday was 43degrees (c). North Stradbroke Island has had some bad bush fires and most of the campers and tourist visitors have had to be evacuated.

The barges have been working overtime to evacuate people.

Every few years there is a fire on the islands. I recall one Christmas I was anchored off Moreton Island and there was a huge fire. I suppose its part of the natural cycle.
