Jul 4, 2016 - Broome

My first job today was to go into town to pick up my wool! I had started crocheting a blanket before I left home as a project to have on my trip. I ordered the wool before I left home and did receive some of it, but the rest was supposed to be waiting for me Mt Isa, but it hadn't even left America by then. Anyway, I organised for it to be sent to mum who then sent it onto Broome for me. Thank you mum! Now I can get back to crocheting again in my spare time. After picking up my parcel I wandered around the shops and checked out some pearl...

Jul 3, 2016 - Broome

Took the dogs for a walk of about 2k up to the closest section of bech to our camp. The first view of the ocean was just beautiful. The water is almost turquoise-quite a different colour to the east coast. We were the only ones on the beach -the dogs had a good run and Ian and I had a paddle. The water was quite warm and very inviting, but we are still in crocodile country so a bit reluctant to go in too far. Once back at camp we decided to go into Broome for a bit of a reccy to get our bearings. First stop was Roebuck Bay, then the port...

Jul 2, 2016 - Derby to Buckley's bush retreat, Broome

Before leaving camp this morning we were visited by the park white peacock. We had seen it around, but this morning it came right up to our van. The dogs were fascinated by it- really couldn’t work out what it was. The peacock seemed totally unfazed as well, and really wasn’t bothered by the dogs at all. Left Derby this morning at about 9.30am to drive to Broome-approximately 200ks. We had been given a tip regarding a camping site 15ks out of Broome by some fellow campers at the quarry on our first night there. I had rung the site...

Jun 27, 2016 - Broome - June 26 to June 27

Sunday June 26 – Monday June 27 Roebuck Caravan Park, Broome Well, 3 nights of free camping and the batteries and solar panels behaved magnificently – apart from the lack of on-board bathroom facilities, and water storage limitations, we could free camp indefinitely. It was an uneventful run into Broome with a stop at Willare Roadhouse to re-fuel and buy some of the beautiful Yeeda free range beef and lamb. Around 12.30pm we arrived at the van park and to our surprise have a lovely large site with ocean glimpses. Our neighbours behind...

May 30, 2016 - Into Broome-time

"Coming Home", by the Pigrim Brothers. What an appropriate song to have playing as we returned to Broome on Monday 30th May. Just love being here, though is way more humid than expected at this time of the year!! Very poor Wet season just passed, so the humidity is hanging around longer than usual. Anne, Paddy and I go down for a morning swim - nothing better, though eyes are always peeled imagining that rogue croc may still be lurking somewhere nearby!!! We have 3 weeks here, so taking it easy. Catching up with Trevor and Glennis most days...

Apr 29, 2016 - Friday 29th April to Friday 6th May Broome

Friday 29th April to Friday 6th May After a lot of research found a nice caravan park called Broome vacation Village it was also the cheapest at $222 for 7 days. When we settled we took a trip into town to do some shopping. Mal had been complaining about his hand being sore and it seemed to be getting worse so after shopping I suggested he go to the hospital and get it looked at, Jess the doctor ordered an X-ray to be taken and sure enough he had a small fracture on the top of his hand near the little finger. They put his hand in plaster...

Apr 28, 2016 - Thursday 28th April

Thursday 28th Still At Barn Hill Had a great night sleep took a antihistamine tablet and rubbed some midgie cream a lady had given me on my bites before I went to bed. Mal made me some scrabbled eggs for breakfast, we sat outside under the shade of a huge tree and ate it. There was a little bit of a breeze which was nice, 36 degrees here today.....as we have to wait for high tide which is at 1.30,I thought, while its a bit cooler I will cook dinner for tonight. I had some mince thawed and thought it a good idea to make little individual...

Apr 27, 2016 - Wednesday 27th April

Wednesday 27th Still not having a great night sleep as I'm waking up scratching my midgie bites, I've tried Detol, vinegar, Anamine cream but nothing really helps I guess I have to let it take its course. I woke up at 4am ready to start the day however Mal was still sleeping so did a bit of reading till a more suitable time of 6 am, by that time mal was awake. First thing to go on is the kettle. My gorgeous husband made me a ham, cheese and tomato toasties which was yummy. It doesn't take us very long to pack up we were on the road by 8.30...

May 13, 2015 - Broome

Lovely to be back with Pete's brother and sister in law, here in beautiful Broome. Had a wonderful evening at Taste of Broome, at Gularri Media (thanks to my niece, Jodie), a lovely evening meal all together at the Roebuck Hotel, then topped that with a seafood feast of chilli crab, garlic prawns, curried fish, fresh and Kilpatrick oysters at Heather's home. Anne, David, Pedro and I spent a superb couple of days up at Cape Leveque. On the map, north of Broome, we were at the tip of that peninsular, called Dampier Peninsular. No towns up...

Oct 6, 2014 - Broome, Western Australia

Broome was “discovered” by William Dampier, a buccaneer and explorer, in 1688 while sailing along the northwest coast of Australia aboard the pirate ship Cygnet. His journal mentioned the presence of pearl shells in the area. He returned again in 1689 in the Roebuck. Legend even tells of a chest of gold and jewels that he buried near where he once beached the Roebuck. Broome is set on a corner of the Dampier Peninsula (often referred to as Dampierland) between Roebuck Bay and the Indian Ocean. There are also a number of landmarks,...

2014-Australia

Oct 1, 2014 - Broome

After leaving Derby we headed straight to Broome calling in at the caravan park where Sue (in the fifth wheeler) was staying on the outskirts of Broome. It was great to see her and her dogs Henry and Milly. She'd been to visit the little abandoned dogs at their foster home and they had settled in very well. We booked into a caravan park at Cable Beach and setup camp. We showed Nettie some of the sites including driving onto Cable Beach, watching the sunset over Cable Beach, exploring other Broome beaches. It was lovely walking on sand again...

Jul 13, 2014 - Back on line!!!

Hi once again. Have had a problem with modem/computer. Went to Maccas this morning as was able to log on there, computer repair shop wanted $110 with no guarantee, so off to the Telstra shop, and they couldn't fix it. New modem later and all is well again. Gordon G G, where were you when I needed you?? Well, when we left Fitzroy Crossing we caught up with Ann & Harry again in Derby. Walked around the jetty and because the tide was going out, the fishermen weren't doing any good. Prepared for an early start next morning for the trip out to...
