Breakers on Outer Reef

If there was any doubt that we were on the outer reef, here's a picture of the breakers that were not far away. Needless to say, we were warned to stay away from them.

It would not be a pleasant experience to be dashed upon the reef by them.

It was 2:42 PM and time to load up for the drive back to Port Douglas.
