T O T A L    E C L I P S E 
we drove to Garthalala after work - a beautiful homeland about 3 hours away - We all slept the night on the beach so we could wake up at 5am and watch the eclipse happen ... which seemed like a bit of an effort at the time but in the morning as the sun rose and the moon eclipsed it then the effort was so worth it - the eclipse was so great, it was just awesome to be on a beach in Arnhem Land with only 15 people watching the world go dark again ... 
light to dark
solar glasses
and the sun reappeared and was amazingly bright
the gang
Bo tries hers on for size ...
and then we drove back home ... and went to work !

Luke and Anita come to visit us on their way to nyc ...
we took them camping at Cape Arnhem 
there was a nice sunset 
some oysters, some rock pools
some visitors
Iggy points out the fish
Sailor spears them
Or that is the idea anyways ...
they stayed a week and I managed to take no photos after that aside from
these where Luke is teaching the art of bread making to wee Iggy
we had loads of delicious homemade sourdough bread !
(until the oven broke)

another Charles and Iggy photo shoot

we have so many photos of these two playing together on beaches tis ridiculous

Danny the volunteer and Jamie
 Bec and Bo
and Liyawulumu too, of course
