Yeah, I know what you’re thinking….but this blog is about a billabong! Oh get a grip! That is not how it is created!! OK!!?
We were on a cruise. On a boat. Down Yellow Water with a lovely tour guide (who was practically a bird nerd) who looked suspiciously like my teacher in glasses.
The boat had a few seats, two outboard motors that said “Honda” on them (doubtfully made by Honda who hasn’t made anything fast or interesting …except perhaps the Civic Type R) and a toilet. STOP! I know what you’re thinking…
We saw crocodiles quite early into the cruise. There was a fascinating situation where a female crossed into a male’s territory and to make peace with the advancing male, exposed her throat, the most vulnerable part of her body, and made a gurgling noise.
We saw 4 out of the 5 species of Kingfishers but only photographed 3.
Important Eagles use abandoned Kite’s nests in Kakadu.
A Golden Tree Python was spotted. Golden Tree Pythons seem to change colour but they just look different in different lights at different angles.
Cormorants are beautiful birds and like to dry off their wings and bask in the sun.
Pink Lilies and yellow and white ones hold shear beauty.
So that’s it. Yellow Water is a highly recommended place for a holiday and is just plain awesome. So if you’ll excuse me, I need to go to the loo.
