We had pre-booked into a caravan park at Airlie Beach for 3 nights so we decided we needed an early start to get there before 5pm. As I had a photographer friend in Townsville who I wanted to catch up with, we would need all the time we could get on the road. Before we left though, this pretty rainbow sent us on our way.
