Some places we've been and some places we're going.

Broome 4

It’s now over 3 weeks since we set out and when you look at the map we have a lot of ground to cover over the next few weeks. People who have been staying here for months are now talking about the days being hotter and we felt it today. Our neighbour will be heading back to Albany within 2 weeks because of the heat. This afternoon we decided we had to go for a swim in the glorious azure water but the tide was so far out that we couldn’t get more than about knee deep. The seabed here is also very squishy, not nice crisp sand. We saw heaps of Hermit Crabs and molluscs crawling about on the wet sand.

Before we went to the movies we ate at a kebab place, I think called, “Land of Pharaohs” and the food was just delicious and the décor really interesting. When Alex’s coffee came it had a very clever logo on it protesting about the Gas Refinery which is being proposed for Price Point, a beautiful section of pristine coast.

“Red Dog” was interesting but for me probably not as interesting as our setting. The start of the movies was punctuated with bats flying across in front of the screen. Wise people brought cushions others ended up with sore bottoms! I didn’t expect that because the seats are just like deckchairs but after about an hour I was moving “cheek to cheek”!

Tomorrow we head towards Port Headland but plan to stop at 80 Mile Beach so will probably be “off air” for a couple of days.

We met Irene and Billy Kemp again, they arrived here today from Derby.

The sea looks just tooo inviting.

The Osprey that's been driving me nuts.

  1. Your photos are fantastic. We, too, loved the Cinema at Broome. The Osprey and hermit mud crabs are very special, as are all the wildlife and birds. You will be in your element Sue. I don’t know whether you received my comment yesterday as I hadn’t ‘registered’ when I sent it??? Basically, it said I LOVED ‘The Elegance of the Hedgehog’ – so insightful and intelligent. I stayed in bed until I finished the last bit yesterday morning and had tears streaming down my face on a couple of occasions. I am going to read it again as sometimes late at night I wasn’t focussed on whether it was Renee or Paloma speaking!

    You must be heading south; must confess to not logging on early enough to work out where you went after Tennant Creek??? Where did you head west?

    We loved 80 – mile Beach. There is a guy there who fillets peoples fish for about $5 – he donates all the money to the Royal Flying Doctor service. We asked one guy if we could buy a couple of fillets; he wouldn’t let us buy them, just said make a donation at the Store to the Royal Flying Doctor.

    Are you ‘fisher-people’?

    Enjoy the warmth. (Although Adelaide is a glorious sunny day of about 20 degrees C.)

    Love

    • Hi Cindy, you can go back to older posts by going into “Archives” and then there is a button for “Older Posts” so I’m sure you can go back to the beginning…… if you were inclined! We’re fisher folk as far as eating is concerned but would have to be desperate for food to try and catch any.
