Darwin Day 1 - 3

Sunday Day 1: YAY...we made it to the top end!  For once our flight was at a decent hour and a short 4hours later we landed a little after 6pm.  The sun was just setting and the temp a beautiful dry 30oC. 

Tropical Palm trees greet us everywhere and the pace of life is slow ...aahhh bliss!

Dinner was our choice, so we picked Nando's... chicken and chips never tasted so good!  On the walk home we passed an ice creamery.  Temptation was too great so we stopped for a peanut butter single scoop cone for me and a mint single scoop cone for hubby, what a great way to finish the day.

Monday Day 2: Started the day with a cooked breakfast and some of the best fresh pineapple I've tasted in a long time or maybe it just felt that way because I'm on holidays...hahahaha.  Then a short walk to the convention centre under a tropical sun, for a welcoming address to the 2011 Let's Do It - Conference.  Around 10.30am Hubby and I parted ways, him to do the work thing me to tour the Paspaley Pearls Showroom.

The pearls were sooooo pretty, the little one on the left is the same pearl on the ladies hand.  Very expensive and very rare :)  We were allowed to try on some of the pearl necklaces, nothing better than playing dress up with someone else's  Dinner for the night was organized at the Darwin Sailing Club!

Tuesday Day 3: Having over indulged too much last night, I kinda of missed most of today :(  Seems hubby wasn't much better so we skipped tonight's Conference Dinner and found a cute place to eat - Outback Jacks...

Excellent steaks accompanied by a baked potato and coleslaw...YUM! On the way back to the hotel we passed by the ice cream shop, so we stopped again for an after dinner treat.  Passion fruit for me and dark chocolate for hubby!  Now for a bit of TV and a cuppa before turning in early.
