This morning when Elisha went to hop out of the caravan he spotted a couple of finches in front of the door. He asked if he could take a couple of photos.
I was very excited about the finches, and wanted to see if I could get some good shots. So I opened the doors and sat on the step, cameras in hand. They were pretty hard to capture as they move around a lot. But I got a few nice photos in the end.
We spent the morning getting ready to go out to the Keep River to see if we could catch a Barramundi.
While Nicolene was rigging up the fishing lines I was ever so helpful and sat next to her and chatted! Took a couple of photos of Tank and Dozer.
I have to tell you that I was pretty nervous the whole time about crocs in the river, but still managed to have a good time. Nicolene caught some live bait, but the tide was a bit too far out, and it was quite difficult. The tide being out meant there was more room for the kids to play around though.
It took a bit of convincing the kids that they needed to stay well back from the water’s edge, but eventually they found a lovely sticky, muddy patch of ground and settled in to play. Nicolene and I fished, and Brett and John sat up top with baby Isobel.
After some time the kids moved up the top with the menfolk. It was at this point that we spotted a couple of crocs. There was a splash over the far side of the river which we at first thought was a barra. But then we realised that it was a croc, and there was another heading towards it from the opposite direction. They had a non-fight, the smaller one submitted by running away, and shortly after we spotted a croc floating around the middle of the river, then back to the edge.
The croc is somewhere in this photo – a few pixels worth somewhere.
Once the sun started got below the horizon we made a pretty quick exit and headed home. No catches for keeps today. One throw back catfish for Nicolene. We’ll keep trying to catch a keeper!
