Molly Springs In the Wet!

It is the wet season up here at the moment which means lots of rain! According to one of my favorite web sites BOM, we had 249.4 mm in January and then 425.4 mm in February! So we try and get out on the weekend amongst the showers! This is a pretty typical view from the front seat of the 4wd, water on the track, green lush tree's and grass and grey clouds.

A few weekends ago we ventured to Molly Springs which usually looks like this, a gentle little waterfall but you could hear the water crashing down 5oo meters away as you walked up the track to it! This is as close as we got to it, the water was just rushing by too fast for us to cross or the girls to swim in. I had visions of them being swept away.

So we walked back down the track and swam in a quieter section that is usually just ankle deep. There was still a strong rush of water here, Daz and I were standing in the water just out of shot on the bottom left, and if I faced the current and did breast stroke, I didn't move anywhere, the force of the water kept me swimming in one spot. It was amazing.
