I’ve mentioned already that my brother runs a fishing charter business. As well as the game fishing boat, he has a smaller 4.7m boat that he uses for barra fishing. Yesterday he drove us down to where the Russell River flows into the sea, half way between Cairns and Innisfail. Then we all jumped onto the boat and headed out to the Frankland Islands to enjoy some sand, sunshine and snorkeling. We spotted a school of fish along the way, had lunch on Normanby Island, and generally had a ball. The weather was absolutely perfect. In this case, the photos pretty much tell the story.
