It’s a bit blowy around Darwin today with a monsoon trough hovering off the coast. Yesterday and last night we had heaps of rain but today it’s throwing all its energy into blowing everything around. Our pool had been inhabited by a strange green-striped monster overnight…it rears up like a primeval creature doing a Mexican wave with every strong wind gust. The wind chimes are going nuts!
When you see these photos you’ll know why I’m glad Mr Cassmob’s charter to Gove was cancelled this morning. The streets are covered in leaf litter and branches but to my surprise there was no flooding that we came across.
My hair looked a lot like these palm trees after being out in the wind. I struggled to stay on an even keel and I’m no featherweight.
