ExplorOz - David & Michelle

Although we were in the perfect location to fish for barramundi it was too hot to get motivated to do anything so serious. As it was, our fridge battery had gone flat again and once the boys had lifted the bonnet to investigate the wiring they became engrosed in locating the reason for the poor performance of our new battery. In the end they connected Mark's generator to our battery and ran it for many hours. It was very small and very quiet so it didn't bother us or anyone at all.

In the meantime, the boys errected our 6m x 5m tarp to give us some shade and David set up our shower to one of the side poles to run water from the tap on demand. Every half hour we would stand up and plug in the hose to the shower head and have a cold shower and then settle back to our idle activities.

That night, right on cue, the bats came over as they did the night before. It was a fantastic sight. We cooked a combo meal together - that is, Sharon and Mark prepared a pumpkin curry and we cooked a Malaysian beef curry with cauliflower and rice and put it all in the middle to share with a bottle of red wine...ahh life is tough.
