Settling into the life of ‘freight managers’ here at Normanton, life is very busy the majority of the time which is good especially during this ‘corona thingie’ – but now that we get every 2nd week-end off it is great to get away & do something. The ‘KK’ has been awesome we are very happy with her, I started a vege patch into some tyres & also a couple of pods, the young couple next door were keen too but ‘have no idea – their words’, so they put in heaps of seed as well -I looking after it. It is going okay except the pumpkin beetle just about demolished the pumpkin seedlings ( I still not sure if they are going to recover – its a waiting game).
We drove to Karumba about amonth ago, got most awesome fish & chips so yum, took them to a different beach than last time – beautiful spot, we even took a rod & threw a few lures – no joy, so we walked up the beach to a rocky area, while there we were greeted by the local police – You should not be here, even though I had proof we drove to Karumba for work, they said you not allowed on beach & DEFINATELY no fishing. Karumba has not been very friendly for us but as of last weekend we can now drove 5ooklms so we might try Karumba again in the near future………hahaha
We took a drive up river again a little way & it is rather lovely, caught no fish but had an enjoyable time. The lillies are amazing.
This family of brolgas were not very photogenic, they bolted.
Different parts of the Norman River – quite beautiful but have to be very watchful of the ‘happy snappers’, they are rather large up this way.
