I forgot to tell you all about the "croc siting" in my last post. When we were in Darwin and were waiting to get driven into the city, mum was reading the local paper and i was looking over her shoulder. I couldn't believe what i saw. There was a headline that said "Wangi Falls closed due to croc siting". I nearly fell off the edge of mums chair. We were only there the day before and were swimming in Wangi Falls. I was really nervous about swimming there and took ages to get in and dad kept telling me there is no crocodiles in the Falls and stop being a WOOS. We met some people the next day and they said that they caught a two metre salt water crocodile and dad promised me that it would have only been a fresh water crocodile and they don't eat humans. I could have been eaten by a croc and I don't think i will trust Dad again.
We stopped at Pine Creek for lunch and mum did her usual tasty salmon wraps and we fuelled up and headed off again. We arrived at Victoria River Roadhouse at 4pm and after setting up the van we went for a cool drink on the deck.

We also saw some helicopters fly in to the Road house that afternoon which were from the remote cattle stations and the young guys come in on a Friday night for a night out at the bar and then fly home the next morning. That is a long way to come for a night out but i suppose it must get very lonely out on the stations for young people. Dad said it would be interesting doing a breath-test on them.
