   Ynaught posted on Travel  Because the tides are immense - 10 meters - we sometimes have to get up before dawn for our excursions. We had morning coffee with this moon!

   Ynaught posted on Travel  Minutes after this shot was taken, 48 seasoned citizens, my husband and I included, were in this water, splashing and laughing and having the time of our lives! It was like the pool scene from Cocoon! It is so hot and the water, one of the few crocodile free pools in the area, was so refreshing!

   Ynaught posted on Travel  Today we saw crocodiles in the Alligator River! There are no alligators in Australia, but the guy who named the river, didn't know that and no one has ever bothered to change the name. This is in Kakadu National Park which is apparently listed as the third most beautiful park in the world, or something like that. It is gorgeous here. We are staying in a hotel that is shaped like a croc! The croc in the photo is about 4 meters long and is thought to have recently taken over another male's territory. The older croc was found quite dead with teeth marks all over his head. And so it goes...

   Ynaught posted on Travel  Speaking of trains - we took The Ghan from Alice Springs to Darwin! We had a sleeper compartment and the meals were definitely fine dining with linen table cloths and napkins placed in our laps by the attentive staff! I expected to see Agatha Christie in the bar car! It was a wonderful trip. We stopped in a town called Katherine for a couple hours. We were able to go on a boat ride into the Nitmuluk Gorge. It was a nice way to break up an almost 24 hour train ride!

   Ynaught posted on Travel  We had quite a few dingoes surrounding our dinner party. They are waiting for scraps as we were warned not to try to feed them, especially by hand. They are very handsome creatures. The camels get nervous when they are around, but the dingoes keep their distance from the big guys.

   Ynaught posted on Travel  We took a camel ride to an outback barbecue dinner. Loved the ride except for when camel gets down or back up. Then it's like riding a bucking bronco almost!

   Ynaught posted on Travel  There are more camels in Australia than anywhere else in the world. They are regularly shipped to the mideast to be used as food and transportation. I liked them as transportation!

There was a tradesman, a painter called Wayne, who was very interested in making a penny where he could, so he often would thin down paint to make it go a wee bit further.

As it happened, he got away with this for some time, but eventually the Baptist Church decided to do a big restoration job on the painting of one of their biggest buildings. Wayne put in a bid. Because his price was so low, he got the job.

And so he set to erecting the trestles and setting up the planks, and buying the paint and, yes, I am sorry to say thinning it down with turpentine.

Well, Wayne was up on the scaffolding, painting away, the job nearly completed when suddenly there was a horrendous clap of thunder, and the sky opened, the rain poured down, washing the thinned paint from all over the church and knocking Wayne clear off the scaffold to land on the lawn among the gravestones, surrounded by telltale puddles of the thinned and useless paint.

Wayne was no fool. He knew this was a judgment from the Almighty, so he got on his knees and cried, "Oh, God! Forgive me! What should I do?"

And from the thunder, a mighty voice spoke...

"Repaint! Repaint! And thin no more!"
