14:00 - General Disembarkation for Swimming at Crocodile Creek
Join us for a swim in the cool freshwater of Crocodile Creek.
We will run a zodiac shuttle from shore to ship every
15 minutes. Please bring zodiac life jacket, sunscreen,
hats and cameras. It will be a dry landing at the swimming
Heavenly, a swim to beat the heat, with a promise (had to
get the promise) there would be no crocodiles! This was
the reason Paula and I packed our swimsuits.........
......to climb up and over and into a little slice of
heaven in Australia's Kimberley Region.

When the dry season's tides are low like this
there's apparently no chance of crocs
being able to access the water above.........there
were harmless jellyfish, fish, and other creatures
at the bottom.......but we didn't learn about them
until the evening recap. Nobody was
bitten or stung.....
This beautiful place awaited, the colors of the water
were breathtaking, and that lovely sound.......
the saxophone played by none other than Gus
from the ship already ensconced on the rocks
when we arrived.
Gus and Fran were the great musical duo who entertained
us daily - they were amazing.
This really was a magical place.................
.......a special day and memories to treasure for ever.
Back to Orion waiting for us on the deep blue sea.
