Monday 9th November 2015

Breakfast was a bit of a rush , we woke up at 09.10..Still managed to be there in time ..Phew!

We should have taken our clue from this breakfast time visitor, today would be " Wildlife" day.

We tried the smaller pool or " Our Pool" as we called it..we had it to ourselves for 3 blissful hours, taking advantage of its shaded cool end.

A small bus collected us just after 4 pm for a short drive to the jettty.

Our knowlegable guide Adam , knew all the best places to take us .

He said along this stretch of Yellow water , he'd be confident of passing over & past 100 crocs & see 10., today was a particular sunset cruise was blessed with dozens of sightings.

Adam was able to name many of the birds , including this beautiful Kingfisher.

The birds posed for our cameras, looking particularly stunning amongst the water lillies.

The crocs were magnificent , females up to 2.5 m long living up to 70 yrs, the males some 5m long can live 100+ yrs.

Water Buffalo, a local nuisance, causing soil erosion & trampling birds nests..anything with Hoofs is not original to Oz, these creatures were introduced , mainly by the europeans.

Meet Maxie , a local legend, famed with eating a foal , in front of a tourist group , & displaying his trophy ( Another croc , deceased ) to more tourists.

A relaxing 2 hour cruise was over , back to the hotel for dinner.

Tomorrow should be more of the same with another river cruise booked in.

Goodnight fellow travellers xxxx
