......to Darwin was the marriage of our grandson to the beautiful Sarah. A lovely day, warm in the tropics, quite different to the cold winter that we left in the south. Here is a picture with the bride, groom and other members of my family. From left, my daughter Julie-Anne, my son (and father oh the groom) Tony, his wife Jen, bride Sarah and groom Stephen, his brother Ben, myself and Willi (aka for the purposes of this blog, Popeye)
Cutting the cake. decorated with 2 small penguins made with beads, one with a veil the other a bow tie.

The sign marking the border between South Australia and the Northern Territory, if you enlarge the picture by clicking on it, it will be much clearer to read. This was taken at first light of the day so it looks rather gloomy. the other side says welcome to the Northern Territory. We decided to drive non-stop from here (except to re-fuel) until we reached home.
One of the other road side signs along the way. This road passes through cattle stations and are almost always un-fenced, so it is not unusual to see cows on the side of the road (mostly live ones but some times dead, hit by a car or road train) They often sleep on the road at night and are hard to see and this is why we decided to travel only dyring daylight hours. Thankfully we did not hit anything except for a small bird that flew into the side of our car.

Maybe you can tell, I didn't do very much of the driving, plenty of time to sit in the car, camera at the *ready* and day dream. LOL !!
