Back safely in Darwin. Hot shower and a steak at the Cav. I don’t need these trappings. A swim in the afternoon and talk round a campfire is an experience that cant be repeated in town. Cut Magic Dave’s strapping off my left foot. It’s fine. All healed now. Survived the trip well. Right leg isn’t sore either, so I seemed to get away with it ok. An easy walk. Flat and good under foot. Not as rough as the Larapinta Track, not as hot, wet or historic as Kokoda but one of the best things I’ve done in Australia. You do it for the fun and the waterholes and what other reasons do you need.
Back to winter and cold water in Sydney.
