the mileage dropping. The roads were long and boring. We have a booking
for a caravan park in Broome from 1st June (the only booking we have made
since staying in Cairns and Port Douglas last July) and we were arriving one
day early. A phone call to the caravan park gave us disappointing news -
they were fully booked out and we couldn't move our booking forward by one
A few phone calls later we had a site at Cable Beach Caravan Park and will
move to Palm Grove Caravan Park (which is just around the corner) tomorrow.
One of the options for tourists visiting Broome is to join a camel trail on
Cable Beach. Lines of camels with riders are a common sight. It was great
to see the sign warning us to watch out for camels on the roads within Cable
Beach - another sign for my collection.
Tomorrow our friends, Sharryn and Garey from Wellington, New Zealand, will
fly into Broome to spend the next sixteen days with us. We are really
looking forward to their company and will spend most of the time relaxing in
Broome before heading up to Cape Leveque for five days. The forecast is for
temperatures between 28-30 degrees C and sunshine for the next seven days
and we would expect this to continue. This will be a big change from early
winter in Wellington.
