Peter had the time of his life catching Barra at the Flicking Fish Barramundi Farm
Stopped here in Darwin for 5 nights. We have really enjoyed it here. We were not expecting it to be as busy, modern and as trendy as it is.
Yes it is very humid but we have our fair share of humid sticky, hot days in queensland too!
As long as you have a pool to cool off in and airconditionong to sleep in at night it is a great place to be in December. We have experienced a couple of storms, the volume of water that gets dumped is amazing and the lightning is spectacular.
One negative thing will remain in our memories for a long time and that is the intruder in our van on Monday night while we were sleeping.
I had only just gone to the loo and was back in bed starting to doze off to sleep again. It was 3am in the morning and still dark. I heard a noise and the van wobbled a bit and I thought it was the bats on the roof and opened my eyes to look up at the skylight on the roof to see what the stupid bats were up to. I then saw
Kylie feeding the Bat Fish
If you are quick you can get a pat in. Bit slimy though.
a torch light flick about inside a bit. A bit confused I sat up a little to see what was going on. I thought Peter was on the floor on his hands and knees but then my focus got a bit better and it was someone tucking their little pen torch behind their ear and reaching up to pick up our lap top computer. I reached forward still a bit confused and when I touched Peter there asleep beside the realisation of what was going on totally freaked me out! Somehow I developed this very deep scary voice and bellowed GET OUT! GET OUT OF HERE! and the guy backed out of the van and took off with Peter up out of bed like a shot ranting and raving himself when he heard me. We rang the police. We couldn't sleep after that and also had a very restless night the next night. From now on we will double lock the door!! It's a shame Max wasn't here to greet him.
