Scout Hat – to those in the know

I grumbled at 5 am this morning when I swung my leg over my bike and started pedalling, but we were on a photo mission.

For those who’ve read Wings of Fear (hopefully all of you now reading this!) Haycock Island, off Palm Cove, figures prominently in the action.Β The locals call it Scout Hat – for obvious reasons – and in the story that caused confusion for the customs investigation as no-one from outside of Cairns had heard the name before.

Here it is at sunrise.

And you can see why its nickname is Scout Hat!
