Some places we've been and some places we're going.

We enjoyed our time at Dundee Beach and can understand people opting out and moving there, not everyone has to fish all the time. The old Radio Australia transmission station which we thought we’d visit, has been dismantled and the land returned to the original owners. Wagait Beach though, is on Cox’s Peninsula and we checked out the Mandorah Jetty there. The view was great, we could see Darwin straight out from the end of the Jetty and a ship way out in the Timor Sea. People were fishing and we could see fish everywhere but they were outsmarting the fishermen. Enormous schools of Bait Fish were swimming all around the jetty. On some rocks across from the jetty was what looked like the part of a chair but a local told us it was the remains of a frame used to support netting placed as a barrier to Japanese subs trying to reach Darwin.

When we left Wagait Beach we checked out the wreck site of a WW2 Bomber. Seeing the thick vegetation growing there I think it’s amazing the wreck was found. I noticed some very stark shrubs that had vivid red flowers and it reminded me of the red Poppies and Flanders.

We saw very little wildlife today, one Wallaby, a Dingo but not the creator of the nest at the top of a transmission pole.

When we were at Daly Waters a couple recommended a restaurant at Fannie Bay, Darwin, and we ate there early this evening, I think my meal trumped Alex’. I had Grilled Prawns with Mango and Chilli Salsa, Charred Corn and Garden Salad topped with crispy Sweet Potato slivers. Alex had Spaghetti Marinara which had local prawns, crab, white fish and squid. The Neapolitan Sauce had a hint of chilli, he said his meal was delicious but I still think mine was better.

After we’d eaten we walked along a path above the foreshore overlooking Fannie Bay. I thought that a market was on at the Trailer Boat Club but it was people eating there under marquees.
