Wet Season

This is in a very remote area of the Northern Territory, a small Aboriginal community where I worked as a nurse.
The causeway spans a dry riverbed which becomes a river in the wet season (summer) and the waist-high handrails are underwater for days on end.
And that water contains lots of big crocodiles and snakes and leeches --not the ideal place to go swimming, hot as it is.....
