Destination Broome

Sunday 21st August.

After re-fuelling at Willare Bridge Roadhouse for a mere $1.89/l we drove to Broome arriving at Roebuck Bay at 11.30am.

The sea was a beautiful azure blue and we set up camp and immediately had a swim at Town Beach.

The moon was just past full but still produced a staircase for us to photograph that evening.

We extended our stay to the end of the month. Mail which Amy has forwarded had not arrived and when it finally did it had taken 12 days to get here.

On my birthday we drove across to Cable Beach and enjoyed an iced coffee, returning to Broome for a fish and chip lunch.

Another visit to Cable Beach for a swim, meet the camels and to watch the sunset.

We have two new tyres on the chariot thanks to Daniel. The walls of the old ones had perished.

It has rained to end the month which is the first rain we had seen for 3 months. It was a wet pack up and when we reached Stanley Rest Area we had a chance to dry out before setting off for Cape Keraudren on the last day of August.
