It felt a little weird not having the van on our site today, we are temporarily homeless. But what a great sight when you know where it is and what is happening!
There are some very cute little wiggly tail lizards that live under our van, and they were pretty confused when Col drove off with our home. I assured them it would be back later, but pretty sure they didn’t understand.
It rained on and off today. When it rains it is really heavy but usually pretty brief. I think it must have rained overnight because the roads around the caravan park started flooding, which is the first time I have seen that. Apparently the roads turn into rivers here in the wet.
Col got away on time and dropped the van off on his way into work. I headed to Casuarina to study. While I was there I got a call from the air-conditioning mob to say that the van was ready to be picked up. That was about midday. So I called Col to let him know and he decided to leave at lunch time to collect the van and drop it home then head back into work.
I rushed home pretty excited. Col dropped the van off and then I spent the afternoon setting the van back up again (with the air-conditioner on of course). It was 33.1 when I switched it on at 1.50pm and a beautiful cool 28.2 by 3.30pm. Funny how that felt cool. I had set it for 24C but 27/28 seems to be comfortable. This is the beautiful new addition to our van.
When Col got home from work we got ready to take the boat fishing on Saturday to Cahill’s Crossing with Richo and Scottie, unfortunately Hal can’t make it tomorrow. It is a 3 and a half hour drive to Cahill’s Crossing in Kakadu, and the high tide is at midday. We need to be up at 6am to leave by 7am tomorrow. At least we will sleep in air-conditioned comfort tonight!
