Baby D and I had a fleeting and fabulous couple of days in humid, tropical, beautiful Darwin.
While we were there we enjoyed many things. Spending time with old friends and seeing family. A trip to the weekend markets at Parap and Nightcliff where we indulged in mango and coconut milk lassi’s, veggie and noodle laksa’s, frozen mango and pineapple iced treats.
It was hot and humid, but the upside of course is the rain. There is so much water pouring from the sky this time of year and I was in awe of how luscious and green it all is. Without any effort everyones verge is bursting with thick green grass and the streets are lined with giant coconut trees and palms.
Having been away for a few years I noticed things I didn’t before. The sky seems so open and vast. I think it’s because Darwin is mostly low-lying and flat, so you see more of the sky. There is no traffic! It was so nice to drive around with out the stresses of busy crowded roads.
It was only a few days but I feel reinvigorated, I have that after holiday glow. The question is how do I hang onto that feeling?
Hmmm, maybe I should start planning another holiday…if you liked this post, you may also like:/span>
