Broome, Broome can't get away!!

Well I'm not sure if it's the weather or the beach .......... may be the beach or weather, or probably just because we can, ...........we are still in Broome!!

Haven't been doing a lot, Helen and I go for a walk most mornings, no complaints from Helen!! Then to the beach and watch the waves roll in each day, sometimes seeing dolphins and whales.   I've actually started to read some books, and not just the tide chart so we can travel onto and off the beach each day.

We had Neville and Kathy drop by for a couple of days which turned out to be 3, naturally they couldn't leave the beach.  They had flown back from Perth to Kununurra to pick up their vehicle and heading back to Perth to get their new van, so was great to have their company on the beach, also managed to take in some of the local sites (markets) and a few coffees and beers.

Have not done much of the touristy thing but did manage to go to the stair case to the moon one night........ this night did coincide with the markets!!  So have managed to include a Staircase to the moon piccie, which a visit to Broome must include.

Our stay also coincided with a "Band of Mates" playing at our caravan park, Tarangau.  The group consists of 3 guys performing country music, mainly songs they have written themselves.

The Caravan house batteries decided to fail however New Age have come to the party and are replacing both batteries with new AGM Deep Cycle Batteries.  Picked up the new batteries today and will fit them prior to our departure from Broome.

At this point in time we will leave Broome at the end of August ................ if we don't change our mind again!!!
