Yea, the wet season has begun, we just hope it continues for a bit longer. The storms, light shows & rain has been awesome & of course a bit troublesome too when we lose power for hours at a time but you get that.
We went up river towards Lake Arygle but stopped about half way up for a picnic & also lotz of swim stops on the way up & the return trip, there was only a couple waterfalls running that we could see but I expect we need more rain.
Peter & I have now purchased our’dream’ trailer’, so we thought we would take it for a spin. Left Kununurra & headed east towards Katherine, camped at a free camp & tried out the generator & air con – awesome :-). Drove to Darwin the next day & saw this pretty pony – he was pretty awesome also. Next day headed east again out on the Arnhem Highway towards Jabiru, entered Kakadu National Park for quite a few klms, we didn’t do any site seeing or adventures as we had time restraints but we will visit this area again & exploit the area. Got to Jabiru & took the Kakadu Highway back west towards the Stuart Hwy, camped at Pine Creek caravan park, Peter utilised his cooking skills for dinner & breaky quite successfully, after breaky we were inundated with flying foxes flying above us, obviously someone had upset them. Back to Kununurra, a beautiful storm, lost power for 10 hours (not so nice). The desert roses flowering lotz & the boga’s (which cousin Ros planted) just starting. A friend of mine is growing dragon fruit which are quite yummy managed to take a photo of the flower which is unusual as it only flowers at nite, the bloom turns into the fruit in 15 days – quite amazing & what a beautiful flower.
