Duplicat's Diary

After our day in Kakadu, we were up early the next morning and underway to Litchfield. The promise was for swimming holes in fresh water and without crocs! It was a 4.5hr drive back, and we ended up at Florence Falls which was lovely.

We did managed a swim at Florence, but it was pretty busy. However that was nothing compared to Wangi Falls which was heaving. We skipped the swim there.

That meant we were back in Darwin a bit earlier than planned, and left us time to get on with a few jobs. Monday was provisioning, LPG etc - to get ready for the off.

After a night in Fannie Bay, we left there at midday today, heading for Van Diemen gulf. The weather looks good (more motoring than sailing though), and with neap tides it will help us get past Cape Don hopefully without too much bouncing around… So far so good anyway.
