Travelling around OZ - Quilt Project "Insanity"

Hello, No quilting photo's, this is a catch up post on our travelling.

We turned off the Stuart Highway and followed the signs to Batchelor, a small town close to Litchfield National Park. Cooled off in a plunge pool at the bottom of Wangi Falls. Breathtaking place with amazing scenery.

Our next stop was Yellow Water (Kakadu NT) no swimming here, we did the wildlife and sunset cruise on Yellow Water Billabong

We saw numerous species of bird co-existing with crocodiles, as you can see this "salty" came very close to this Jabiru bird who was catching a fish for his dinner.

The sunset was a beautiful sight with the reflexions of the trees on the water.

On dusk the saltwater crocodiles take to the water looking for dinner.

The next day we got up close and personal with one of the local residents.

I was not happy to be this close to this big fellow, the dingy I was in was smaller than the crocodile by at least a metre....

At Cahill's crossing we watched the water level reverse it's flow, several big crocodiles gathered on the low side of the crossing and as the water level reversed it rose high enough for the waiting saltwater crocodiles to swim from on side to the other. It was exciting to watch them pass over the crossing one by one from the safety of the river bank.

On leaving Yellow Water we are crossing the boarder from NT into QLD.

I will try and post again soon.

Happy quilting until next time
