Last year my sister got married.
She married a wonderful crocodile farmer amongst the termite mounds at sunset.
There is not likely to be another wedding in our family and we made this one count.
We celebrated at the races, on the harbour, at the caravan park, out fishing, swimming at Buley, at the markets, all over town and down the track.
For some friends it was their first trip to Darwin and it was a great introduction.
For me it was an indulgent and special re-acquaintance with the town of my childhood.
Darwin is my place for growing up.
It is where I was born and went to school. Where I turned 16 and 21.
It is where I lost my virginity and where I attended my first funeral.
It is the place I rush back to when I can and miss when I am gone.
And now it is where my little sister became a wife as we danced in the dust with the fairy lights and paper stars.

… me and some of my crocodile buddies are heading to Fairfield Primary School for their Art 4 All exhibition this weekend. Come and play.
Fairfield Primary School are about to hold their annual Art 4 All weekend. Centered around an art exhibition, there is an opening night on the Saturday and market stalls on the Sunday.
I am going to be making some crocodiles and maybe some birds between 11 and 1 on Sunday 11th Sept. Come by and see the frenzie of cutting and gluing!
For more information see the school’s webpage.
BEWARE – The giant lizards are about to rumble…
Crocodiles fight dragons in a battle to the death. The prehistoric hero of the river takes on the mythical beast of the sky in a spell-binding, nail-biting bout of fire and water.
Gone are ideas of spiders, bitey insects and meat-eating plants. Instead it is lizards all the way. More pics soon.
