Before Covid came along my guardian Pauline decided we should visit Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory. Now travel is not always a pleasure for someone like me. Well I never get a proper seat on the plane, so that means no life vest. Pathetic…..what would happen if we crashed? 😨
Finally arrived in Darwin. It’s a long way from our home in the Blue Mountains. They are obsessed with crocodiles up here. Crikey, do I really want to go to Kakadu, where these creatures live? Pauline made me pose like this with one How stupid!
In the end I didn’t actually have much choice about bloomin’ Kakadu. The truth is, I have to go where Pauline goes.
The man driving the boat told me about the dangerous Logodiles. Have you heard of them? Some people on the boat were giggling. No idea why.
Oh my word….I still think crocodiles are scarier. This one was a bit too close. And he was lunching on a poor little wallaby that strayed down the bank. I had to close my eyes (after I took the photo 😜).
There was a special bird Pauline wanted to see, and suddenly there it was!
Here is the most special thing we saw. A baby crocodile cooling off in his ‘paddle pool’.
I bought a painting from a man on the riverbank at Kakadu. It’s an inside-out barramundi fish.
Time to hop aboard the train and head south.
Found a little vein of opal. Not much colour though.
Look what happens when everyone gets opal fever and starts digging!
I went to Glenelg Beach when we got to Adelaide. Why do I always have to be put on silly things??
The indoor market was better. Mind you, I knew this cafe was too exotic. I ordered a poached egg. Apparently it’s under all the tab, tibool… (green stuff)
Do you think someone ‘doctored’ this sign? Haha, I might have had a paw in it.
I really liked this seat.
Back home in Blackheath. It was all a bit much for me really. Sorry, I haven’t done very well with this story. I wasn’t taken on enough excursions, so it’s not my fault. I need a cup of tea!
And a biscuit. Do not judge me, OK?
