After a longish drive yesterday we ended up taking it easy today. We did want to go to the Gorges but lethargy over took us. We started out well by a short stroll down to the Hot Springs that are at the back of the caravan park. Taking note of the Crocodile warning signs at the beginning of the track then the one near the steps leading into the water we went for a swim. The water was warm and crystal clear. Now what did that last sign say. Oh yes it said DO NOT ENTER THE WATER crocodiles were seen here, then a date that wasn’t quite legible, it may have been 15/5/16 or 15/5/15 not sure. Anyway we had a quick dog paddle around while two others were there but when they left leaving us as the only bait we decided we had had enough.
Later we took a drive around Katherine had some lunch and retired back to camp for a nanna nap. We may have a better chance of the Gorges on the way south from Darwin. Tomorrow we will be in Darwin and get the oil changed in the car. We have a week there then start our trek south through the Centre.
Didn’t have a camera this morning but click on the link for some photos.
Cheers see you in Darwin
