Move to Melbourne

We were sad to leave Darwin, it really is a lovely place. Yes its hot, but the public pools are free, the shopping centres have aircon, the sunsets are magic, and the people are open hearted.

We moved to Melbourne where Leigh took a job at La Trobe University and Sunshine settled in to the idea of having another baby. We live in a nice house in Ivanhoe, Leigh rides to work each day.

Gary from work, took Jon (also from work) and I out to see his cousin Greg - a NT Ranger out at the Mary River National Park, and his mate Chippy. Fires were burning all around this day. We went fishing on the Wildman River, along paper bark river banks. We could see big barramundi swimming past plenty, but could only hook 3 on the lures, and none on the live bait. A spear is definitely the better way to catch barra in the dry season, a time when they hibernate.
