A little piece of paradise...

23 July...Tuesday. An R&R day. Shopping and organisation ready to leave in the morning. Afternoon spent around the pool and caught up with new friends...Linda and Neil from the Hunter Valley after dinner.

We were sorry to leave Jabiru .. it became a home away from home for a week and we had a very relaxing time there. A great park!
The pack up

24 July...We headed off to Dundee Beach bright and early.  Spectacular location... a little piece of paradise  (but still with red the beach!)

We watched the sun set over the sea and had a great seafood dinner at the restaurant.
Unfortunately there is a big high pressure system over the Gulf and it is too windy to fish with no charters operating.
Where are all the fish?
A big fishing competition starts tomorrow and all the sites are booked out with a massive influx of crazy fishos, so we decided to head back toward the Savannah Way. Dundee Beach is certainly a place we will return to one day with boat in tow. spots like this make Nambucca Heads look pretty good. I don't care how big the barra are!

But the beach is good... except for the big crocodiles!
And the sunset is magnificent
25 July...packed up and headed back to Katherine via Edith Falls, preparing to hit the Savannah Way after we visit the hot springs at Mataranka Homestead tomorrow. Caught up with cousin David and Rose (think back to bike room in Hollywood mansion blog post) and lunched with them at Pine Creek as they head for Arnhem Land and Maningrida.

Some more shopping in preparation for our trip across the Savannah Way as well as getting all my edit and blogs up to date as we don't know where the internet will come back in! Maybe Cairns!

Looking forward to going home for one reason. Nor red dirt there and our feet will be clean!

Until we pick up internet access again...
