Among the crocodiles on Yellow Water Billabong

Our last cruise was on the Yellow Water Billabong at the end of Jim Jim Creek on the South Alligator River in Kakadu National Park. There were lots of crocs as you see on this video but also fantastic bird life and surprise, surprise, not a canoeist in sight.

Katherine Gorge

OK, Back to our trip. We arrived in Katherine in the Northern Territory and took another cruise, this time on one of the best gorges in Australia, Katherine Gorge. This was my favourite gorge. See if you agree:

There are lots of kayakers in the gorge, even though there are also lots of crocodiles sharing the gorge. I guess, every now and again, they just have to paddle extremely fast.....

We are presently busy cleaning the house of the fine dust that got into the house even though we had all the doors and windows shut.

But today, the sun is shining in a clear blue sky.
