Sunset from the Mercy deck on our way to Darwin, Australia. It was one night and two days of travel.
My last breakfast on ship. Gotta give credit to the Navy - not to bad.
Made anchor in the morning and this was our view of Darwin. A small but very nice city with shopping, beaches and plenty of natural habitat.
This is the small port we came into. We arrived on a private boat and had to go through customs just to the right of this picture. That's Australian Navy ships in the background. Don't get to comfy with the scenery. We had large carp swimming around the pier (crystal clear water) and the boat helper told us he has a nice picture of a 13ft. croc sunning on the boat ramp about 25 ft away from the customs area - ouch!
A little beach music - Australian style. Had to dig the local grooves. This guy was way cool playing the dijerie doo (Sp?). Hard to believe one person gets all that sound out of those things. Also had a drummer to the left. Loads of fun!
