Tuesday 30th August - Day 39 (continued)

  • Pub opened early and fun music started - all day birthday inside - sounds good in there might check it out tomorrow. 
  • Pools good - smells like pool - good to jump in then have a shower after. 
  • Mist spray bottle got a work out today - so did the wet clothes - lucky we had a breeze. 
  • Jumped in the shower fully clothed and came back sat on the laptop.
  • Our super cheap 12v fan died today - will have to pull it to bits and fix - hopefully easy! 
  • Another young couple arrived this arvo - they look normal! will go say hi if they're around in the morning. 
  • Caught up on a lot of work today - good! 
  • Off to cook some dinner now.

Wednesday 31st August - Day 40

  • Relaxed.
  • Tent + pool = fly free 

Thursday 1st September - Day 41

  • Chatted to an older couple who were heading a similar direction in a little van.
  • Drove out to gorge - great little spot. Had a swim. Hardly any water. 20k dirt road - rather bumpy.
  • Snake! swimming snake. First one we've seen. Little green/golden tree snake. Apparently non-venomous but still gave a fright on the walking path. On the way back to the car after the gorge we had the camera out trying to spot him. Got a few pictures as he scuttled down the embankment and swam across the little creek. Cool!
  • Tried to organise packages delivered up here straight from ebay - failed. 
  • Pub meal (huge). Chicken parmy and cheeze pizza.

Friday 2nd September - Day 42

  • Early morning - worked outside until the flies got too much
  • Hot today. Really hot.
  • Stocked up on bread and milk from reception. Nice fella in there. He has a pet snake he rescued. Looks cool.
  • Some tourist couldn't get his spare tyre cover off - had a flat in the petrol station outside after we got icecream. Watched him for a bit then got a screwdriver under it and popped the cover off for him. Not sure he spoke much english. 
  • Sat under a sprinkler this arvo - it was so hot. Dried off in 1 minute. 
  • Lorikeets loved the sprinkler up in the tree - I think Dave got a photo of it getting wet.
  • Only 1 person arrived this afternoon - quite different to other nights. 
  • Cooked up toasties for dinner ontop of the washing machines.
  • Packing up tonight. Off to Kakadu in the morning. YAY!
  • Nice place to have relaxed - now on with the adventure!
