in Broome, Graham and Chic Jones took me on a tour of Broome. Most
famous is Cable Beach,
a huge white sandy beach in the Indian Ocean. We had a wonder around
the rocky headland,
and saw how brittle the rocks were. This
piece only fell off this year! We also saw an example of Dinosaur
tracks, though these
were only a cast of the originals.
||In the evening we went to watch the sunset on
the beach, accompanied by a glass of chilled wine, and some cheese
and biscuits. The view was enhanced by a camel
train!! The Indian Ocean was lovely and warm, though I did not
swim! If you look carefully, you can see Venus above the sunset.
||Broome is hot, humid and sunny, and
I was pleasantly warm! It is surrounded by Mangrove
Swamps, which have to cope with a 9 metre tidal range! The swamps
included some beautiful Fiddler
Crabs. The reason for Broome's existence is for the pearl shell,
and now cultured pearls. This
statue is in recognition of the divers, who were brought in
||This coast is quite varied. Graham and Chic took
me to this beach, where the rocks are really beautiful. A high spring
tide comes up to them!!!
||In the evening, we had another attempt at the
A bit better this time, though the clouds still spoilt it a little!
Later we went for a lovely dinner with their friend Gary, it was
roast beef cooked in a Webber Kettle. A sort of BBQ roast! Later
we tried to catch a wallaby on film in Gary's large garden, but
they were too elusive!
