While in Darwin we chose to go on a jumping croc cruise. We loved it. I’ll post about it later after I’ve had a chance to go through the video we took that day. On the way home from that fabulous jumping croc cruise we drove through the Fogg Dam Conservation Reserve for a quick look. After our hot morning we weren’t in the mood for any walks but you can see plenty from the road. Apparently even turtles, though we didn’t see any that day. What we did see were lots of lily pads and plenty of birds. The wetlands are a haven for birds. We drove through Humpty Doo and saw the Boxing Crocodile, but viewing it through the car window as we drove by was as close as we got. That night we watched the sunset from Cullen Bay. There’s a lovely grassy strip at the beach which is a popular spot for sunset viewing. There’s also a lovely fish and chips restaurant there which we chose to indulge in. We couldn’t remember the last time we’d had fish and chips! Always enjoyable and always incredibly greasy. It was another of those nights where we weren’t sure we’d see much of a sunset, but then the sun peeked below those clouds and it was gorgeous. I found this cool rock and you need to take a picture of it and I’m going to look all serious. I know, I’m totally hilarious. Did you see what I did with that serious face? Funny. There was another little boy at the beach that night wearing the same shirt, TurboBug noticed it and pointed it out to us. ‘Dinosaur shirt!’ I don’t know why they bother putting these silly sayings on kids’ shirts, he’d be happy with just the dinosaur! I love it when you can see how far the tide comes in because of what it leaves behind. So many beautiful rocks and shells to pick through. LadyBug (5) had a collection of pure white shells that she brought up to the grass, the white was so striking against the green. Look at that toddler just wondering the beach on his own. Where on earth are his parents? 😉

Sunset at Cable Beach – How Many More Minutes?
[…] for ages, warm water…it’s too perfect. We hadn’t been to the beach in ages. We’d had a nice sunset in Darwin, but no beach play because, well, it was Darwin. Croc country. So we hadn’t had a […]
