nice market, but too many people for me ;-)
impressive, but: make peace, not war !
croc tour on the Adelaide River. Pat, our guide, a real "Bushie", did an awesome job. one hour telling facts about the crocs. well done mate !
Crocs, especially the saltwater-crocs, "salties" or estuarine crocs, are perfect predators and they are very very dangerous. a shark "only" makes a test-bite, but a croc does not care. if you still not know,that there is a river/creek close to you, the croc already knows, that you are here. they can wait under the surface for quite four hours.... and then. fear them more than snakes and spiders.
I did this tour with http://www.wallarootours.com/. highly recommended !
Joey from wallaroo-tours, our driver/guide for the day trip, did a perfect job.
my hosts prepared a birthday dinner for me. so nice and friendly ! thank you so much !
no, I have no bloody cane toad in my bags ;-)
Victoria River, view from the new bridge
I hate the new pavement. so rough and bumpy.
Saddle Creek rest area, beautiful and nice people !
no fruits or vegetables in the luggage. had to open my food bag.
