It has come to my attention that it has been 3 years since I last blogged, or though about blogging. 3 years since due to a few unfortunate mishaps at Cape York and Mount Isa (didn’t write about that one), we limped into Darwin and stayed. 3 years of living in this tropical paradise.
It has not been all sunshine, lollypops and rainbows. My husband got epilepsy, I started a small business and my husband and I separated. But, I live in a most beautiful part of the world, met some amazing people who have become my adopted family, experienced some exciting things, scary things& hard things. In short, I’ve lived and I love it!
I hope you be able to spend some time musing about my time in Darwin, showing you my little piece of paradise. So, please stay tuned!
We had an early morning start and took the ferry over the Jardine River.
Crossing the Jardine River
We drove through the little dust blown towns to the Croc Tent. The Croc Tent is at the junction leading up to The Tip. This is where we picked up some souvenirs and information maps of the area.
Just a little further and we made it to the northern most tip of mainland Australia!!!
Not a great picture, but we made it!
Even though it was a little touch and go at the beginning of the trip, we are very glad that we did continue on. It makes it just that little bit sweeter knowing that against the odds we got there in the end.
