THE ADVENTURES OF S/V SERENITY AND HER CREW
Tomorrow is the day
07/27/2012

July 27, 2012 Well, after over a month in Darwin we are ready to shove off. We have enjoyed our time in Darwin and our almost six months in Australia. But, our lockers are full of food, the boat is washed, and all systems are go for launch tomorrow. We will 'lock out' of Tipperary Waters Marina at 8:30 am and start our three day passage to Kupang in Western Timor. We are excited and look forward to many adventures in Indonesia. We also have thought of our time in Australia and we have tried to condense six months into a few thoughts. We both agree that our lasting memory of Australia will be of how friendly the Aussies have been to us. Everywhere we have gone, from Perth in the West to Sydney in the East, and from Darwin in the North to Tasmania in the South--we have heard a friendly "..How ya goin?". The Aussies have welcomed us and made us feel at home. We will miss Australia and the Aussies--and that is the fair dinkum truth. The photo is of the walk from our marina home into Darwin-- we have walked that path many times.

This is another of my favorite drawings. This is a sick or dead person with swollen joints. This person has miyamiya--the sickness you get if you disturb the stones of the 'sickness country'. Radiation sickness?

This is a view of the wetlands from the viewpoint at Ubirr.

Many of the rock art pictures were of the aborigine's food--Kangaroo, Wallaby, and tons of Barrimundi the local fish.

This is one of my favorite drawings-- it is a depiction of a white man. There are other pictures of white men--all have their hands in their pockets and have large feet because they wore boots. Sherry thinks that they are depicted with their hands in their pockets because they did not do any work--they made the Aborigines do the work. I think it may be a warning that the white man cannot be trusted--he is hiding something. What do you think?

Another 'salty' croc--they are primal scary looking critters.
