So we decided to have a walk along Horseshoe bay and eventually came to a small boat house which we wre admiring. This old guy who was living there invited us onboard to have a look. Well he turned out to be a bit mad I think, not dangerous or anything just a bit crazy – explaining his theorys on life the universe and everything. After about 30minutes we managed to escape, I guess the poor old fellow (who told us he had fallen on his head from 30feet) was just a bit lonely.
Last night I heard that a crocodille had been seen by someone snorkling off our beach, not really sure if it was true, but its quite possible with us being only 8km from Townsville, I’ve heard that they sometimes do swim hundreds of km. Today on the radio we were also told if we were going swimming to take 2 litres of vinegar with us for Jellyfish stings. The Jellyfish season is not ment to start until November but I guess they are being cautious incase of early ones. Man I wish there were less stinging biting things around sometime, kind of does make you a bit paranoid sometimes. Picked up a really good second-hand canvas tent and Esky todayfor $35 – the tent needs some minor repairs but will be perfect for the Darwin trip, I just need to get a stove and a few pans now.
