Darwin NT

Hi! Here we are in Darwin, we arrived here Thursday about lunchtime. We couldn't get a camping spot on Wednesday night at Hayes Creek so we travelled on to Adelaide River and spent the night at the Showgrounds there. We met some more fellow travellers from Bunbury WA there and they arrived in our Caravan Park here yesterday. Thursday night we went to the famous Mindil Beach Markets. It was packed but lovely. Lots of food, stalls and entertainment. Also beautiful sunset views on the beach. We didn't take the camera so we will have to go again.
Yesterday we caught up with an old friend (Nola) from WA who we haven't seen for over 15 years. We lunched at the Pint Club a favourite haunt of hers. Today we ventured around town mainly to Cullen Bay Marina and the Fisherman's Wharf and did a quick drive through the city. We have caught up with all our washing but still have a few maintenence jobs to do. We are staying in the Coolalinga Caravan Park a small drive out of town on the Stuart Highway a lovely green spot. Happy Belated Birthdays to Keira (4th),Kai (21st), Jess (23rd) and Bill (29th) they are dates not ages. There is so much to see here so hopefully we will get some more photos soon

Talk again soon

See how close you are to Nhulunbuy (Gove) - we spent 17 years there. I will say, I love Darwin, Adelaide River, too, Mataranka, too! Hope the Territorians are welcoming you - they are fine people - funny, but the salt of the earth! Oopsy, maybe they've changed since 1994!
Hugs - Lurline♥
