Beautiful Darwin

We have just returned from a fabulous Darwin getaway.  We went to Darwin for James' cousin's wedding, and while the wedding was just beautiful, we found that there were lots of other exciting things to do in Darwin too!  The kids were very excited to hold a snake and a baby crocodile at the Crocosaurus Cove Centre.  Later in our holiday they even got to eat crocodile!

Darwin's waterfront precinct is stunning and very family friendly so we spent quite a few hours in the Wave Pool.

The wedding was at the Darwin Sailing Club - the perfect venue for looking for crocodiles..and pirates...
the perfect spot for playing on the beach... and for watching the sunset over the water..
The very best thing about Darwin?  The weather was perfect! Between 19-30 degrees the whole time.  Just what I needed to break the long, wet, Adelaide Winter.
And now we are home, and it is Day One of the school holidays.  We have lots of plans (most involving cooking or crafting) but today has been slow paced and lazy!
happy Monday,
Keep smiling,

Looks like you had a wonderful time. I haven't been up north - one day :)
It's ages since I ate crocodile - yum!

i wonder how crocodile tastes. is it good?

thanks for your comment on artsy ants. we'd love to see your up-cycling projects!

if you'd like to include any type of button in your side bar, this is how you'd do it:
copy the entire code text you see under a button (it starts with <div style ), go to the "design" area in blogger, click on "add a gadget", scroll down a little and select "HTML/JavaScript" by hitting the plus symbol next to it, past that code you had copied earlier into the "content" field and hit "save". that's it! let me know if you have any trouble with it.

Simona, it is a bit like bland fish (although I am probably not the person to ask as I don't particularly like fish!)

Kell, can whole-heartedly recomment Darwin. Could not help but be shocked that your baby is now 2!!! Where did that time go!!!
