Thursday 17 and Friday 18 September. Wout: A longer stage today, 310km. Because of the heat we always start around 7:00h and stop at 10:30h. Because we are now approaching Darwin, the ocean makes it a little less hot. That is 36ºC instead of 40ºC. Still not cool but more tolerable. We have chosen a campsite 10km north of Darwin. The campsites around Darwin are all in the vicinity of the airport, so that is not a good idea. Again a very empty campsite. The season is clearly over, but not for mosquitoes. Deet works. We stay for 2 days and see many different birds. The Bush Stone-curlew, cockatoo, Masket Lapwing, Ibis, and more. They like de water.
