Heading out this weekend was fantastic. Swimming in a beautiful waterhole next to some really nice waterfalls.
This is by far the biggest river that I have seen up here so far.
The Paj got to strech its legs as well being 50km out of town.

After enjoying a quiet upbringing in Sherbrooke, Victoria 'The Paj' suffered a mid life crisis. Fleeing to the farthest northern coast of Australia, it is now known for it's adventurous spirit and unforgiving determination.
We did get it bogged today at the beach around the point between Yirrkala and Shady Beach. But after some encouragement she pulled through.
'The Paj' 1985 Mitsubishi Pajero.
While my mum was in Hong Kong recently I asked her to buy me a new mobile. The Sony Ericsson G900 may not look much, but it has all kinds of great features. I am using my Sony Memory M2 1GB Memory card, It has a full touch screen. Plays some of the best games and applications that I have ever seen on a phone. It has WIFI (Wireless network) so when I am at home or at work it connects to the internet to check my email and websites for me. A 5MP autofocus camera is very good for a camera phone.
I would recommend this phone to anyone. It is a bit expensive in Australia, when it becomes available. But you can buy one off ebay for a good price.
Anyway, Thanks Mum. Love you.
Now that the regular routine has set in I can't wait to come back to Melbourne and spend some time with friends and family. I am enjoying work though. There is always plenty to do and the career opportunities are fantastic. With a little more experience here I am sure I will be set up for the rest of my life with a good job.
I am not sure about where I will be in the future, whether I come back to Melbourne and work for a consultant in a few years, or stay with Rio Tinto and move to another site. There are plenty of options opening up, and most of them are very rewarding.
I will be back in Melbourne for the last two weeks of October, so if you want to catch up give me a call.
