Well we have arrived in Darwin and have settled ourselves into a caravan park near Palmerston. We have a lovely spot beneath some palm trees and there are a couple of pools here that we have been frequenting often. We did go for a swim one night at 9pm and had a few cane toads watching us but generally we don't see them during the day. We don't have too many neighbours as yet, in fact we are looking out over empty caravan sites as far as we can see but we are told it will be completely booked out in the coming weeks. For now we are enjoying the empty shower blocks and being able to get into the laundry whenever we want.
It is getting towards the end of the wet season up here and as I sit here we are having somewhat of a drenching tropical shower. We had plenty of rain on our way up and at Daly Waters Danny took this snap of a couple of ducks who looked like they were a bit tired of having wet feet!
We also found these crabs at Daly Waters. The girl in the roadhouse told us they haven't been around for a few years because it hadn't been wet enough. They were a long way from the beach!
We have been enjoying our few days in Darwin and think we will stay put for a while. We have been looking around in the 'NT News' for jobs and Danny has even gone so far as to apply for a couple. We'll let you know how it goes.
