Couldn't have planned it better if I tried

What a fairytale ending to my Northern Territory adventure - a victory by Craig Lowndes at Hidden Valley this afternoon! All in all a very exciting day. The racing was fantastic to watch, and there was a bit of off-track excitement when a three-foot long snake slithered into a baby stroller, causing quite a commotion.
So tonight hot, tired and happy. We fly out tomorrow late morning, back home to the cold. I've been enjoying the weather up here and it will be a bit of a shock to go back to single-digit overnight temperatures after an average overnight low of 20 degrees.



A few piccies - I'm not the world's best photographer but I wanted to put a couple up here.

Steel power poles. Timber wouldn't last, what with the six-month wet season and the termites.
