Dry Season boating

In the Dry Season the waters off the Sailing Club at Fannie Bay are scattered with boats of all descriptions. As I drove past the other day the sea was a calm as a mill pond and the scene was absolutely tranquil apart from work being done on a boat which had been brought up onto the beach. Come the Wet Season there won’t be a boat to be seen in this same location: they’ll all be in marinas or stored to avoid the risk of cyclones.

The essence of tropical tranquility.
Vestey’s Beach used to be the site of the Vestey’s Meatworks in the early part of the 20th century but was closed when it ceased to be economically viable. Wouldn’t it be a shame to spoil such a peaceful scene, let alone the smell, if this had remained the site of an abattoir.
