Day 2 - Thursday in Broome

Up to the sound of Pedro the Rooster and a cacophony of birdsongs. Glenys and Ray head off to the beach - to dip our toes in the waters of nearby Cable Beach. But it is a long way to the edge of the water at low tide!

On returning we enjoyed home made yoghurt and paw paw on our muesli - great.  Soon we are on our way to explore the town - our aim to rendevous with Jill and another friend Richard "Salty" Baillieu at town beach cafe.

After coffee we explore the Broome Museum - it is a treasure trove of local history and a wonderful way to learn about pearl diving and the industry.

After some grocery shopping and an expedition to find someting warm for Ray to wear at night, in the morning and when we go south (code for "Ray  forgot  to bring something warm and useful").

Then 'its back to 12 Millington Road for another late lunch and more treats "Thread Fin Salmon in Japanese breadcrumbs" and relax. Soon its time to drive down to the beach and Denny has organised a superb "champagne at sunset on the beach" and dimsims while we watch it. We see the camel caravans pass by and the sun is setting rapidly on the horizon. Lots of photos and then Ray takes the wheel of the Honda to carefully drive around the rocks and the sand and back home for carrot cake and coffee.
