Post 82 – Broome

Broome - van park



Apparently people come from all over the world to watch the moon rise over the wet beach in Broome. "Stairway to Heaven". "Stairway to the Moon?

While not the flashest caravan park or the cheapest we did have a prime location over looking the town beach. This shot was taken from our site.

Bird Flower.



Ann had been wanting to see these Bird Flowers ever since reading about them. Just as we were boarding the bus to leave Kooljaman the bus driver came on board with one. (I am not sure if you are supposed to pick them)

Beagle Bay Church



The church was built of local materials around 1915. It was decorated with local mother of pearl and other shells.
