There were record high temperatures in Queensland as we left Airlie Beach, and our family living there, and headed back down south. We were travelling the long road between Mackay and Yeppoon and getting a bit hot and bothered, so the cafe at the wonderfully named Flaggy Rock was a welcome sight. (Really we stopped because the signs said 'real icecream and real coffee'.)
But what really caught my attention was the lagoon behind the cafe. It was covered in water lilies and dragonflies were everywhere.
Oh, and a spider was waiting patiently in a shady spot.
