Where else but Darwin would you get the opportunity to sit down and have lunch with the most powerful man in the Free World?

Admittedly we were sitting at Char’s Restaurant on the Esplanade, Darwin and he just drove past about 10m away however at the end of the day we had a place at our table reserved for him…..and he could have joined us in the event that he had of slowed down below 35kph and been looking for a quality Australian Red!

All jokes aside we were pretty chuffed that accidentally we found ourselves only meters away from Mr O!

I thought I was pretty well controlled when he went past in tha cavalcade the first time as I was snapping pictures…..however when he came back the second time past our table and my camera was out of battery I found myself pointing and screaming like a school girl “There he is….In car No 2…..How cool is that!….I’ve seen him!”……Oh how embarrassing?
