Darwin - Mindil Market

Spent the day yesterday at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Notrthern Territory. Lots of good displays including aboriginal art and a facinating Cyclone Tracey exhibit.
Today we caught up with a bit of housekeeping, washed the caravan etc , Mark thought he deserved a sit down with a cold beverage after all his work. He certainly has relaxed into this new lifestyle.
Just kidding.............That good looking bloke above is our neighbour we get to admire his stunning physique every day and he is always dressed the same !!

 Mark relaxing at our tropical shady site at the Howard Springs caravan park.

Mindil market is a twilight market held on the foreshore at Mindil beach and we couldn't believe how many people were there , hundreds of people go down to the beach to watch the sunset over the water.
There is every type of cuisine available , buskers , bands , stalls, aboriginal art and lots more.
Marks purchase from the market, this will wake up some of those grey nomads.

Had a look around Fannie Bay Jail today, if you had to be in jail it's a nice location, the prisoners were taken down to the beach every day for a wash.
Having dinner at Cullen Bay tonight with Tony and Sue (SA) and another couple we met at Daly Waters Norma and Bob (SA)

Heading to Kakadu tomorrow, more photos of gorges and waterfalls to come.
