Oppy heading south…

Oppy is now making great progress towards Cape Tribulation. The latest images to come down show she has been driving down the eastern flank of “Knobby’s Head”, the small, tadpole-shaped ‘island’ between Cape York and Solander Point, her planned landfall site at Cape Tribulation. I stitched three different images together to create this picture, showing Oppy’s most recent view of Knobby’s Head…

kh-stretchOoooh… look at that… some lovely-looking ledges, outcrops and other geological goodies up ahead! But will Oppy take a detour to go and see them, or will she steam onwards to Solander Point? Time will tell, in the meantime here’s a new colourised view of Cape Tribulation…
