Backpacking and Bipolar II. Taking Manic Depression on tour.
Or so you’d think! I went to Lake Eacham today to go for a swim. Barely anyone was there, when I asked Eileen ‘why?’ upon my return – it comes to light that 25°c is far too cold to get Australians out swimming. I have no fucking words… The water was warm, the sun wasn’t BLASTING down and there was a mild breeze. Perfick!!!
Saw razorback turtles, a waterdragon, pelicans and a nice local who pointed out all of natures bounty so I didn’t blithely wander past the aforementioned animals.
Will definitely do it again. There are also free BBQs and stalls set up around for people to make food on. This is a 10 minute drive from where I’m staying.
Oh – There ARE crocs in it but they are the small freshwater ones. Only really a threat if I’m hit with a shrink ray an have scales surgically grafted on.
