Day 186 (Australia – The Gibb Day 27)

Today was exceptionally hot and I did a fair bit of feeling sorry for myself. Fortunately, clouds built up into the afternoon and these provided relief from direct sun. It was still bloody hot though. I pushed on to Creek Crossing and found a pool to jump into, scaring a Freshwater Crocodile into submerging in the process. I wish I had a handline so I could catch some fish for dinner. Phil said it was a piece of cake to catch fish out here because the fish are numerous and naïve.

      Ah but they are so beautiful (says the zoologist)! Seriously though, you’re bound to see them on any long distance cycle trip. It’s worth understanding them a little. At least to know they are typically gentle creatures not out to do humans any harm. Not many people get hurt by snakes and if they are, they are usually doing something wrong.
