After nearly four months camping in our tent, while we travelled north to Darwin then west across to Roebuck Bay, we have left the dust behind and returned to the lush green of Daintree. We’ve now unpacked, cleaned up most of our gear before storing it and the vehicle is mostly clean inside. Although it’s taken a few days to truly feel ‘at home’ again we are both appreciating the space, the green and the peace as well as our walking tracks.
The water levels in the wetlands are low, as we would expect at this time of the year, and we are not the only ones enjoying easy access. This lovely girl was enjoying some sun in the swamp this morning and was undisturbed by our presence on the driveway.
Floscopa scandens ,which we now have growing in several areas around the wetlands, is looking very lush and healthy with lots of pale pink flowers. Although the water level has dropped the ground is still holding a lot of moisture, the grass is still green and we’re happy to be here.
