One of the best things about having visitors come to stay is getting the opportunity to be a tourist in your own town. And- since we now have a seriously awesome Guest Room- we've had a lot of visitors!
My Mum came for a quick visit during the school holidays and we decided to go on a cruise on Darwin Harbour – in a duck!
"Jemima" is a LARC – an amphibious vehicle painted to look like a duck. (By the way LARC stands for Lighter, Amphibious, Resupply, Cargo)
Check out the size of those tyres!
The car to boat thing was pretty awesome.
Then we went out sailing. Past the museum.
Past Mindil beach - looking quieter than I've ever seen it!
Then, the highlight for me...Seeing heaps of beautiful dolphins frolicking around the boat.
Then they let the kids drive the boat!
Then, when our time was up, we headed back onto land and returned to the city.
Driving past the Botanical Gardens on the way back into town inspired us to check out the new cafe.
Lots of organic, gluten-free foods mean this little duck will be heading back there soon.
