|Swimming at Florence Falls|
Early Thursday morning we set off to explore, with the first stop being the Magnetic Termite Mounds ... These entertained us for all of about five minutes, four of which we spent getting into and out of the van.

Unfortunately, the truth is that you drive past a whole lot of more interesting termite mounds to get to these ones which are located so far away from the walkway (about 50 metres) that you can't really appreicate them. Mind you it still didn't stop someone breaking one of them, sigh.
Still we took the obligatory photos and moved on ...

Next stop was the Buler Rock Pools and Florence Falls, and this was much better. Given we had all day we chose to do the 5km return walk between the two, which although you wouldn't rave about it, was still an enjoyable way to pass a few hours alternatively swimming and walking through the heat of the day. Next time though, I might park at Florence Falls so it is a walk back down, not back up, to the car.

We had a thunderstorm that night, well at least Kim tells me we did, apparently my snoring competed with the thunder for accompaniment to the lightning, oh and apparently our camper leaked ... fortunately only on Kim's side of the bed. :)
We decided the next morning that Litchfield wasn't going to entertain us for another full day, so we went for an early morning walk around Wangi Falls (which unfortunately wasn't opened for swimmers due to crocodiles again) before heading to Florence Falls for one final dip (well I did, Kim just got focussed on the fact that there were crocodiles around, so just sat at the waters edge and played with the fish).

Around 11am we jumped back into the camper and headed off to our next detination ... after nearly a week spent avoiding crocodiles, it was time to actually go and visit them.
