Lake Argyle, there was a great infinity pool overlooking this incredible man made lake. I planned to build a raft out of boards to float around in the pool wearing a suit and tie.

I met Nic from Belgium in Broome the day I was leaving, he works as special effects guru on feature films! My imagination went wild with the possibilities of what we could make as we convoyed to Darwin with some painting tools, HMS and Nic’s motorbike. Nic was leaving two days after me and unfortunately broke down near Derby, twice and deemed his bike done and caught the bus to Darwin.

Nic gave me this postcard.

great bower

this little guy, the Great Bower Bird, very fast, VERY NOISY and a collector of small objects via colour association, mainly white, with a little green and silver. I think we got some similarities (I’m also very fast)

on top of being an artist/tasteful interior designer the Great Bower Bird is also a great architect. Broome Bird Sanctuary
