    ... glass when you walk on it and it chinks together, so I thought I could make a wind chime out of the pieces when I get home. We had a couple of drinks on the balcony and watched the sun go down We plan to run up the hill along the track to the lighthouse tomorrow morning. I agreed but it will be a bloody hard run as its a pretty steep track so time will tell tomorrow morning. We went to Foxy's for dinner as the other restaurant was open but it looked ...

    ... showered and had spaghetti bolognese for dinner. Becky spent the evening reading. She's downloaded another 13 books. She'll probably finish them before the end of the week.

    ... nesting female because the she moved all the way up into her nest (crocs nest above the high tide line up in the brush). The whole cruise wrapped up with us being able to pet a baby croc. Our last stop was at a river swimming hole. This was a freshwater gorge river with a few small little falls. Reminded me a lot of Ithaca, only that the vegetation is entirely different. This was also easily the coldest water we've encountered on the trip and it was probably in the 70s. We had a lot ...

    ... was a tanker, think it had something toxic in it by the call sign on Ship Tracker. We watched that pass through the harbour and go off to dock. Walking from the harbour we then saw a bird filtering the water. It was a Royal Spoon bill. It's an odd looking thing, it's beak really does look like a spoon. Headed back to the hostel then.

    Had a relax in the Air-con room for a bit. Went for tea as early as we could so that we'd be able to eat then head out to see ...
