          We came back on boat, took Kwells and didn't have a problem. Not too rough, though I heard it was rough going over. Hard to predict.

          Hi there would appreciate it if someone at the Heron Island Resort could please confirm that the resort hasn't suffered damage as a result of Cyclone Debbie and now the recent aftermath of torrential rain and flooding. My friend arrives this weekend and I'm heading there for Easter. Thanks in advance. Cheers Helen
