Life isn't a business to be managed, it's a mystery to be lived!

Edith falls were a nice cooling swim
Here I dropped my camera, the good luck continues….

image

And after a couple of minutes I got it working again
Did not swim here

image

But here

image

Now let’s go to the national park the size of Slovenia! Say hello Kakadu Tony!

And here someone was posing a lot for me while he was trying to eat some flies

We arrived perfectly in time at the roadhouse where we were spending the night. But everything was closed. So off we go to next one on the map. Shit happens ey?
Driving on gravel road, the sun goes down and we finally arrive to the camping area…where there’s no lights and no people. Yupp it was just us.
An hour or two later 3 girls arrive as well. This night was a bit like Into the Wild, the movie. We wanted to make a fire and to look for pieces of wood in the dark was interesting. We did good and survived the night.
Next morning leaving our remote camping place

image

The same road continued to Gunlom falls where we were heading. 20km took us 1,5h to drive but it wad worth it!

Cooinda – Yellow water
In Cooinda we stayed in Cooinda Lodge which was really a nice luxurious place with everything. There is a big big swamp and a river called Yellow water.
The sunrise cruise was booked and it was like a fairy tale

image

This swamp has a rich bird life. I saw not only very rare beautiful birds I also saw the biggest camera lenses and some of them in camouflage. Anyways.
There are two kind of Kingfishers. The common one is Azure Kingfisher
image
And the rare one is Little Kingfisher, the bird lovers on board went crazy. I understand why.
image
Here i also spotted this little lady

It was very nice to finally see some crockies in the wild.
Now to give you a picture of the seasons here. It’s now going in to wet season. The tree on the left you see in the picture below, is not visible during the wet.

Jabiru
Only in Oz – the Croc Hotel
image
Yes it is cool…but no it is not really. When I made a visit it was really nothing special.
Jabiru is the only town in whole Kakadu.

Ubirr – spectacular sunset
Cannot be caught on camera. The view from here was all sorts of different green
image
The color of the sun was hot red..this photo is still not making it justice
image
And the entire sky was soft pink red and just ah!
image
And you know how it is with places like this, they are popular
image
Time to leave Kakadu. Though when you park under a tree…well then you need to clean up some of the mess
