The night before we stayed at a camp ground at Merl . The mozzies where so thick it was unbelievable. As it was so hot I slept with the roof hatch up. The mozzies spent all night rein acting the battle of Britain only 20 cm above my head! the next morning when I opened my eyes i had a dozen of them on the fly screen above my head still eyeing me out for breakfast! Pack up that morning was a shocker. 90% humidity & already in the high 20's a shower was required before we hit the road.
|That evening we hit Ubirr once again with travelers we had meat at Darwin earlier in the trip. This time we where rewarded with a spectacular sunset.|
|Just one of the dozens we captured. It changed from minute to minute.. Had to be there|

|The next morning we headed out from Jabaru in the direction of Katherine & opted to check out one more art site in the park. Nourlangie rock had 2 galleries on display with the art work showing some fantastic detail.|

He makes thunder with the stone axe attached to his knees and the hoop is his lightning
and yes yes there was more Barra pics! f#&king Barra....
|In the car park we came accross this "Wicked" camper. I wonder if they get any takers?|
Troy is considering repainting Tommy the Tvan in a similar style should this ploy work... I may have to purchase a tent !

We have moved only 200km south of our last camp & what a difference that made. Little to no Mozzies or croc's & I had to crack the sheet out to stay warm... Bloody tropics
|Next day we went for a paddle in Katherine gorge with rod & lure in tow|

|Not a Barra but a Sooty Grunter. Good fight. A quick kiss & back it went to fight another day|
|The one that should have got away..... Poor little bugger ended up floating past on its side soon after.... DOH!|
|Even the Croc's have there own canoes to float down stream. (Caged for their safety) ..... At this time of year its a "safe" water hole but the sight of this was enough to put most off going for a dip.|
|Wish you where here!|
