After our historic train ride from nowhere to nowhere, the coach picked us up and we drove to Karumba. (see map). A port town on the north coast of Queensland in the Gulf of Carpentaria. No sooner had we booked into our motel, our guides walked us to the beach. We were reminded to keep a look out for crocodiles. We climbed aboard a little boat for a sunset cruise to a sand island where we had a crab and prawn dinner.
It took about 30 mins to arrive at a small sand island only inhabited by a flock of pelicans.
Soon we all had it filled with our choice of wine.
As the sun was setting the organisers set up tables and chairs and a buffet of prawns, crabs, chicken, barramundi fish, salads and quiche.
I didn't take any crab as I find them difficult to eat and I wanted to take photos of the sunset. It was hard enough balancing the plate, the glass of wine and a big camera.
After the delicious picnic washed down with more wine, I danced to the end of the island to see the pelicans.
It was so peaceful watching the sun go down over the gulf in the warm, balmy, tropical evening.
