Now I can talk Crocs…

 

Crocs…

 

In all our time visiting Bynoe harbour over the past few years we had never come across a croc. This time was different we came upon them numerous times. One had taken resident in the creek near were we’d  dropped anchor.

We first saw him when we were ‘zooming’ up the creek, Rudy spotted him after we’d passed. Mmmmm they make you a tad nervous..

Later he came and visited us at the boat…

Not the best shots but here they are…

 

Concealing..

Power to Survive..

Connection to Mother earth

Primal energies..

When a Crocodile enters your life look for the opportunity to get deep into one’s primal energies.

Opportunities for  new wisdom and knowledge..

Dinner at Crab Claw

The conditions for sailing in Darwin this time of year are beautiful. With big tides, flat water and light winds that glide one easily and briskly along the water.

A weekend treat for us is to sail to Bynoe. In a huge and very sparsely populated Harbour just south of Darwin and nestled deep in the upper reaches is Crab Claw Resort.

There’s a little balinese style fishing resort with elevated cabins and palm shaded walkways that lead to a wonderful ‘open style’ restaurant, that sits high over looking the water.

 

This is what I call 10 000 star dining...

9 apr – Easter Cruising Log

A gentle sail back 9/4/12

Left Craw Claw with the outgoing tide and slight breeze to get us to Bynoe Harbour entrance,

just in time for the inward tide and the afternoon sea breeze back to Darwin.

Decided to wait around and watch the sunset,

In on the 7pm lock swing.

Big tide

A great time had…
