Well we got to Hayes Creek at about 3pm, after catching up with Dave's mate in Adelaide River & then of course we had to stop at the Pub for another Barra Burger :)
We set up camp:
|Beautiful little C/Park - lots of shade & green grass~|
On Wednesday Dave set off for work bright & early - the Mine is just 10 minutes up the road.
I caught up on the washing & was reading the paper after lunch when I heard a crackling noise, there was a fire in the bush behind us - but no need to panic in the NT they burn off alot it is called a "Cool Burn"
But I got some good photo's:
On Thursday I walked down to the creek where there is a beautiful little swimming hole, another great photo opportunity

|Beautiful running creek|
|The Water was so clear|
& Dave thought I would be bored here!
We went up to the roadhouse for dinner on Thursday night - the meal was fabulous! I had Barra, chips & Salad & Dave had Snitzel with Hawaiian Topping, chips & salad:
Dave's job has been extended until next week so we had the weekend off.
Saturday we drove up to Darwin to do some groceries.
We stopped at the Fred's Pass Markets & got a few souvenirs & gifts for friends.
Then drove onto Coolalinga to do the food shopping - Boring!
We didn't get back to camp until about 4.30, so it was a pretty long day.
Sunday was much more relaxing, Dave cooked us a lovely Bacon & Egg Breakfast & then we packed a picnic lunch & headed off for the day.
We drove to the Daly River Crossing, it was closed but the river was beautiful:
|The closed crossing|
Definitely worth the drive
|Dave heading down first|
So off we went & we chose camping spot number 6 and walked down to the river with our lunch & sat by the rapids - very nice!
|Dave threw a line in but no luck!|
Then we drove down a bit further to the Arches to take some photo's:
|another great spot|
Then it was back to camp, for a rest :)
Dave worked through until Wednesday night & we are leaving tomorrow morning heading for home.
Until our next post,
Cheers & happy travels,
