Mindil Beach sunset
Woke up really early but stayed in bed til around 10am when I met H to do some washing as our clothes were absolutely filthy. Had a smoothie and waited for stuff to dry which took til past midday. We then went with K + R to the Art Museum at Fannie Bay which was free. Caught the #4 bus from Cavenagh St for 50 cents (bargain, so much cheaper than Melbourne!). The museum was great. It had heaps of Aboriginal art, a Cyclone Tracey exhibit, a natural history section, 'Sweetheart (a 5.1m stuffed croc), a maritime section with MASSIVE boats, a section about Catholic missionaries, and a scienceworks like bit. It was great but so huge it was exhausting! Afterwards we headed to Mindil Beach to grab some lunch/dinner, see the market, and watch the sunset. I was really hungry so the food was great. I bought some photos of Jim Jim Falls and a Top End Billabong, 2 magnets, and a cloth patch. H tried possum and buffalo. The sunset was amazing. There were hundreds of people sitting on the beach watching it. It was the most brilliant oranges, pinks and purples. I also had a rainbow snowcone which was very artificial but yummy. After the market we taxied back to the hostel and I just packed my stuff up and showered before heading to bed.
