Goin' ah Dah-win

or, as New Englanders say, Going to Darwin, Australia

sunny 96 °F

It appeared that there are Biblical scholars all over the place here, given the signs about things NT, even weeds (this photo will likely amuse only those who have studied OT and NT in seminary). Here in Darwin, NT means Northern Territory. Darwin is in the NT, at the Top End of Australia. This means that it is very close to the equator and this means that it is VERY hot. We rose early and drove a long long way to the Adelaide River in Djukbinj National Park where we climbed on a boat offering a Spectacular Jumping Crocodile Cruise. We were excited because our friends Doug and Jane Kline had been awed by meeting Brutus three years ago in the same river. We travelled for a long time until we met Roger. Roger, we were told, is a rogue, a sexually mature male who has not yet established his territory (Hmmm). Apparently Roger wasn't very eager to eat either. He never jumped, so we drove a long long way back to Darwin where we shopped because the stores are air conditioned. We found a splendid tablecloth painted with aboriginal art, and we'll see how it looks at 25 Scarborough Street.

It appears that Roger is either jumping (hope not for a live bird) or walking on his tail. His neck/head seems as long as his body.
