MONDAY 21 AUGUST     DARWIN

It was a quiet day for us. It felt really strange without M about.

We spent time packing up our camp and getting ready to move out tomorrow.

We had decided to move out to the caravan park at Howard Springs – closer to where the mango work would happen, if we were still going to do that. It would also be a less costly place to stay.

Packing up at Hidden Valley

Basically, we were just waiting around to hear about the construction camp job – or the mango one. That manager, R, had been so vague that we really did not know what might be happening there. Had the impression that whatever was holding up access to the site might  prevent the job happening at all. The uncertainty was quite frustrating. I was quietly hoping – hard – that the construction job did not happen at all.

We collected a batch of mail from home from the PO at Berrimah, where we’d asked for it to be sent. Nothing untoward there.

M phoned, at night. She was at Elsey National Park, at Mataranka. She had intended to stay last night at Umberata Gorge, but when she got there, did not like it, so had moved on to Pine Creek for that night.
