When one thinks of Broome, one thinks of Cable Beach, that long 20 kilometre stretch of beach. On rare occasions it’s paid a visit by salt water crocodiles while camels frequently take visitors on an evening stroll along the shore. The beach has great tidal swings over a 24 hour period and the sand is quite firm and slopes very gently into the ocean.
Broome itself, sits on a peninsula with the Indian Ocean to the west and Roebuck Bay to the east. During the morning we body surfed the waves and in the late afternoon we were witness to a glorious sunset. Our day ended with a wonderful dinner for Adele’s 75th at Cichetti’s Restaurant at the Cable Beach Resort. We were surprised by two of the couples from our Kimberley tour at the same restaurant and we followed the meal with a social gathering. It was a great end to the day.
