So, today was a rather eventful day.... Steve woke Briah and I up to go on a river cruise down Katherine Gorge, which we turned up too late for... Briah painted a bird on her Boomerang with the winner of the 2012 Naidoc Arts Exhibition, Johnny. He was so very kind hearted, we even gave him a tip and a drink... Something I don't think he gets a lot of. We sat and had lunch at the Caffeteria.. This turned out to be the most interesting lunch I think we've all experienced. A resident Kookaburra was feeling a little hungry for some tucker.... He was eyeing off our food from a very comfortable distance above when suddenly he flew down and landed on the back of Briahs chair.... Briah freaked out and said " OH MY GOD", he was eyeing me off for a bit then without warning flew to our table from Briahs chair and stole a chip from the plate. WOW!! How scary. He was very daunting being so close with such a large beak and the weirdest eyes I have ever seen! Everyone had a laugh at our expense...
After our little "encounter" we all decided to go for a swim at the "Katherine Hot Springs". I was brave enough to willingly enter the water.. We all had an absolute blast. The water was so warm even Steve got in. I decided to be brave and swing from a tree... Shaking like a leaf I took the plunge, letting go way too soon resulting in me hitting my butt on the ground haha. This was the first time I have seen Steve swim this much since we've been on holidays. Was so great to see a smile on his face. Definately well needed. We then went to yet another camping store.... Gahh Steve and his Camping stores...... This boy has a one track mind.
To end our day we had a swim in the pool which was very refreshing and relaxing. Now to cook dinner for the crew :)
