Darwin 2011 Fogg Dam and Crocodiles
Today was a memorable day with a 6am wake up to get to Fogg dam by 7:45am.Great vista of many waterbirds and others including very bright red finches. Then a cruise on a jumping crocodile boat on Adelaide River. Spectacular crocodiles but probably best thing was numerous Black Kites and Whistling Kites swooping the boat for handouts as well. Then Howard springs for walk in forest and topped off with visit to Palmerston weekly Friday night markets for food.Made sure got good shots of crocs for Lucas. Darwin has grown incredibly in last 40 years.Managed to get a laugh out of waitresses at Croc kiosk with my "do you know how to make Watermelon Wine?" routine.Tomorrow Litchfield Park.
ps. Link to a great song about Watermelon Wine
