March 10, 2014
The cyclone was aiming directly toward us and its rain and wind threatened to flood the route we planned to drive. Con and I watched the Australian website throughout the night and by morning, saw that the cyclone had turned around and headed back out to sea. We drove to MacKay and watched the massive waves rolling in and listened to the gale-force winds and rain throughout the night.
In the morning, we drove through the rain to Rockhampton, and stood at the Spire at the Tropic of Capricorn -- the southern most position of the sun.
