... at the cafe in the museum which was really nice. After lunch we went back into the museum for a while and looked at a few more displays until around 3:00. We then went for a bit of a drive into town but ended up at Mindil Beach by 3:30, half an hour early for the markets.

... so take inside the Waeco fridge, bring inside the outside table and "flog" another couple of chairs from another cabin - definitely not enough in the room, especially for the price paying. Really disappointing and such a huge difference from the Darwin home.

Each time it was rebuilt in the style of the day. So it looks very different now to how it would have looked.
