Darwin

Days 1/2/3

semi-overcast 75 °F

These three days we spent enjoying ourselves. But, one day we did go to a crocodile park called Crocosaurus Cove. We saw turtles and snakes and all sorts of different reptiles. And of course, like the name says, we saw crocodiles! We got to feed them and we even got to hold a baby croc!
