Gill and Peter like to travel. In 2011/12 they completed a trip around Australia. One of the things that they are aware of is the fact that to live your dream then you actually have to do something and that's what they did. In 2013 they decided to further explore outback Australia and crossed the Simpson Desert. Going forward they will continue to travel as they plan for the next few years.

After our visit to the Defence Museum we meandered our way through East Point Reserve - this is a large park area with a great lake.We were on the lookout for a picnic table under the trees but as we were after 1 pm and there were plenty of people around we were out of luck.We continued along the foreshore and soon found a table and we had our picnic.
We had a great view of Darwin in the distance as well - it was pretty good.However we didn't spend a long time there as we were heading to the Museum and Art Gallery for a full day of culture!The food was good though.

On the way we saw a sign post to the 1934 Qantas Hangar so Peter wanted to see it.It was a little disappointing in that there were no planes in it but only one luggage vehicle with Qantas on it.The rest of the shed was a "man's shed" - it was full of vintage cars in various stages of repair and heaps of motor parts.Boring, boring, boring for me and I was glad there was a lounge chair with magazines especially put out for the women visitors. We had a short visit then continued on - it didn't really interest Connor either.
