Monday we are all heading back to Jabiru to show everybody the sights. Then Thursday sees us offically start our big road holiday. LOOK out Broome here we come!!!!!


Well we spent another exciting weekend camping. This time we went to Mardigal and took the boat. We celebrated Jarred's birthday - camp style with a yummy breakie of pancakes and then a few hours out on Mardigal Billabong Fishing. Back to the tent for a late lunch and then birthday cake!!! Slightly squashed Birthday Cake but hey it still tasted good!!! We had a bush BBQ for dinner before the Mozzies tried to carry us away!!! There were so many....... I'm sure if we had stayed out any longer they would have!! Sunday saw us head out on the water again this time to Yellow Waters. It wasn't hard to spot a croc today - there were heaps of them. The lillies are out in flower and the waterway looks so pretty. We all had lots of fun and cannot wait to do it again!!!
