View from restaurant over dinner.
Hmmm, sorry about that - lost network connection and half last blog not posted. Where was I. Eighty Mile Beach Caravan Park- top spot, not much to do but relax, catch fish at high tide and watch the sun go down with a glass of white or a beer. By far the friendliest and best, shadiest (v.important) CP we have stayed at on the coast.
Have been in Broome 2 nights with 2 to go. First night headed out to Cable Beach for a 3 hour drinks/dinner date with one of the famous sunsets up here. Tonight we have been to Sun Pictures in town and watched a movie outdoors while eating our dinner in a deck chair - this is one of Broome's must do's and heaps of fun. This is a serious tourist town and if you have serious bucks you could really let loose here. Restaurants, top accomodation and more charter boat and plane options to fabulous remote places than you could shake a stick at. Tomorrow we are going out to the Willie Creek Pearl Farm. With anyluck Mike will fork out big $$$ for 20th Anniversary gift for beloved wife - dreamin' (unless I leave

We saw "Wild Hogs" Rating ****. Or maybe you have to be on a Road Trip?
this laptop open as big hint.......).
Oh, also, this is the first place with technology to develop film from the cheapie marine camera we had with us earlier in trip. Not too many came out clearly so we are lucky we had professional photos from our Whale Shark Dive (but for copyright reasons we cannot publish them). You will have to make do with some of our less spectacular photos and see the rest when we get home.

This turtle swam with us for some time. In the sanctuary zones all fish were friendlier!
