Sightseeing & time out

It is not all work and no play. We did some sightseeing in Darwin proper including the historical aspects esp in relation to the Darwin bombings of 1942+ and1972’s Cyclone Tracey, the harbour, the shopping mall and finishing off with a light dinner at the wharf. Another outing saw us visit the Anglican Church out at Fred’s Pass which has no side walls followed by a picnic lunch at Howard’s Springs accompanied by many mosquitoes. The coastline between Darwin and Fanny Bay is lovely and would be good for a bike ride which we never got around to, pity. Lunches in the park and strolls around the place were more in keepig with relaxing this time around. At one stage I inquired about having a stall at the famous Mindil Markets but it is just too big and professinal for me plus there wasn't much room for casual marketers. Sunsets up here at the top end are out of this world.

We also attended the Casuarina Baptist Church in the mornings and the local Anglican Church in Nightcliff. The latter is one of the few churches in Darwin that have an afternoon or evening service. The Youth Minister here, Bruce Chapman is supported by BCA as is Tom Slockee who is the Cannon Missioner (lives and works from Nungalinya). The Nightfliff church also have a fellowship meal after every service which is a great way to meet the people. I love how you can generally feel at home in just about any church one attends when travelling. Sure there are different worship styles especially in the music and the liturgy, but you can feel at home amongst other Christian brethren.
