Voodoo Dundee - Port Douglas

Crikey, Team Voodoo Lounge hit North Queensland this week.  Step aside Hoff, Voodoo has it covered between the flags at 4 Mile Beach. 

The shopping baskets aren’t seen a lot in the pro peloton yet, but I think the cunning Aussies could be on to something. 



A little later… after a spin down 4 Mile Beach (as used by Kingsford Smith for landing on first airmail run to Papua New Guinea) we’re in croc country.  Luckily I had my trusty Malvern Star go-anywhere rental bike.  Note bike stand aided by use of helmet to combat quick-sand.



The mangroves were creepy; while I didn’t see the crocs, some of the skid-marks were scarier than Dave’s laundry basket.



Then the tide tried to grab my Malvern Star.



I had to get to high land, so it was back up the beach and the highest hill around (which isn’t saying a great deal as the place is essentially flat).                                                                                                                                                                                                                    



About 27 deg here, with moderate humidity but nothing too bad.  Tough life.
