I have been quite slack in writing stuff down so a few things are out of order, but you'll get the gist.
The drive back to Broome was moderately uneventful. Just wanted to get in and set up camp, grab some tucker and some food. Actually, I think this was the day that Amy, Suz, Jen and Phil did the camel ride on Cable Beach. By all reports it was quite scenic but there were sore butts and legs all round.
Went for a drive on the (Cable) beach this morning. Wow! Great beach with the most blue water ever, but missing that darker blue channel we were looking for just off the beach that might hold something a bit fishy. From there we did a little sightseeing down to the port (closed due to a fuel ship being in) and then down to Ganthueme Point (not spelled correctly, I am sure). The point was great, again with the most beautiful water and even a school of Salmon passing by. The whole joint is a bit windy but think that is just par for the course.
Later in the morning Phil, Tony and I did the Matso Brewery
tour. That was a lot of fun! Not much of a tour as the brewing room is one room but the head brewer Prav was hilarious. An engineer by trade, he turned his hand to brewing and is knowledgeable across a broad range of subjects./ The sort of bloke you'd like to sit down and have a beer with for an arvo to pick his brain and listen to his stories.
The arvo was spent buying food and drink for the next part of the trip (took bloody ages) and then washing the truck. We also went back down to the beach to watch the sunset - amazing! So many trucks on the beach and three groups of camels (what is the collective - a herd?) with people having a ride. Caught up with the dirty Pom Neil and Roy again as they got out of the Kimberley early. A brilliant BBQ dinner, a late shower and bed, with earphones for the Ashes, saw the night out before the trip back East *sniff*
