The latter half of the weekend sees normality return
Tropical Cyclone Ita has headed far south, bringing rain to Mackay today. Blue skies have returned to Cairns, and I spent some time this afternoon at the Bar and Grill (sitting under the new "skylight") and then the beach while I read. The erosion isn't as bad as I had expected, though we have lost a lot of sand.
The waves are much reduced, though still a little more than usual. I noticed two guys around 20 years old trying to ride boogie boards, and hooting with delight as they got 3 or 4 meter rides. Maybe they should have been there yesterday.
