Howard Springs to Kakadu National Park

We finally hit the road a bit late today after having a little mechanical issue with Myrtle. After trying a couple of  possible repairers we finally came along Vic from Northern Van Repairs. He was our caravan angel, he fixed our problem and had us on the road again within an hour. The drive from Howard Springs to Jabiru in Kakadu National Park is only about 216kms but there were quite a few spots of road works happening which slowed us a bit. We finally arrived and headed to the caravan park we had been recommended to stay - Lakeview Tourist Park - but they didn't have a site for us so we headed to the other park, Aurora Tourist Park. When we drove in and picked our site we thought we had struck gold. This is such a nice park, grass, shady trees and the most beautiful pool I have ever seen in a remote caravan park, with a bar and restaurant beside the pool. Myrtle is camped about 10 steps from the pool. So needless to say I may be spending a bit of time in the water - no chance of crocodiles in the pool too!!

Hows this for a pool in a remote caravan park?
