Flooding







This is the Macleay river where we spent Christmas. On December 27th we discovered the river in flood. So ended the fishing and swimming. Normally where I took this last shot from you would only just capture the river at the far left of the image. We drive through this area. The tree on the right marks approx 4 meters of flood water.
The top image is taken from the cutting looking back on Green Oak. The house is up on right, but behind the branches.


Interesting fact: When the Macleay is in flood, the currents are the second fasted flowing in the world, I believe the Amazon is the fastest.
