When does mummy get to use her chair?

After saying goodbye to Bec, Paul, Emma and Adam (and their kids), we were on our way out of Broome.  Cape Leveque is 200km north of Broome, 100km of which is unsealed, red, sandy and at times extremely bumpy road! We stopped a short time into the drive so that Mick could talk to the people at the Blockade who are protesting against Woodside's Proposed Gas Refinery. They have been there for 120 days, and are apparently making progress.

I spent the rest of the dirt road trying to provide suspension for my bouncing belly. Paddy of course slept, and India wanted to get out of the car. Mick, on the other hand, was loving it!

Cape Leveque is stunning, and we think it's better than Cable Beach, because there are no jellyfish to dodge! We chose a campsite over looking the ocean, but in doing so, we had to forgo shade. It has been a good decision, by 4:30pm, the breeze was beautiful and the sunset over the ocean in front of us. And right this minute, I am typing this in my recliner as Mick plays the uke and I listen to the waves just 100m away from me.

Backtracking, after we set up camp and had lunch, we went to the beach for a swim. The water was warm, and we all had a ball swimming and building sandcastles. Schnitzels for dinner as the sun went down, kids to bed and that ends another gorgeous day in WA.
