22 May, 1769

 

On 22 May, 1769, James Cook wrote “thick Clowdy Weather and excessive hard Showers of rain and very much Thunder and Lightning which continued the greatest part of the Day”.

Joseph Banks wrote “This morning showery and cool, seemingly a good opportunity of going upon the hills. I went accompanied only by Indians, indeed all of them but one soon left me, he however accompanied me during my whole walk. The paths were very open and clear till I came to the woods but afterwards very bad... I was in some measure however recompens’d by finding several plants which I had not before seen, with which I returnd before sunset”.
