Saturday evening

We went to Sonya and Joes house to help celebrate young Robyn’s birthday.
Some interesting characters there, including “Stretch”, “Bones” and “Curly”. Even Joe it seems never uses his birth name having always answered only to Joe!
I asked Curly to allow me to photograph the very impressive mural on his bar next door. It was created by a friend from an original photograph of one of the local drinking spots at Nightcliff

Saturday morning

Barbara arrived this morning at 2am on the flight from Adelaide with her daughter Chloe. Barb is in Darwin for a week for training with the law fraternity in the Top End. We had a touristy morning with a visit to the Parap market and then to the Art Galley and Museum. Had my usual lovely brunch at the Cornucopia Café of Eggs Royal.
Chloe enjoyed seeing the crocodiles big and small and also the dressups etc

Interesting to think about the 4 metre monster at Fogg Dam..
