Even More Broome Adventures

The time is just flying by here in Broome (why do holidays always go by so fast?)
On Friday morning we decided to do the Willie Creek Pearl Farm Tour. The guides were awesome, so funny and very informative. At the end of the tour, guess who got chosen to model a $20,000 pearl necklace?


I think it suits me, don't you?? I don't know why Dave didn't want to buy it for me!


After the tour we cooled off in the Resort pool, and had some lunch and a cocktail (I'm determined to try them all before I leave, to see if there's one that I don't like - I haven't found one yet!!)
We decided to hire a car for the next 24 hours, so that we could see a few of the sights. Simon and Ness shared it with us. Here we are with our little Broome Broome (perfect name for a hire car company!)

We had a drive and a wander through the town centre (known as China Town). We made an essential port of call to Matso's Brewery. Dave had a Mango and Lime Cider (I had a sip and it was amazing), but I couldn't decide on one beer, so I had three - in taster size!

I had a Alcoholic Ginger Beer, a Lychee Beer and a Mango Beer. I'm not normally a beer drinker, but I enjoyed them all, and they are so refreshing in this 35 degree heat and high humidity. It's like being in a sauna all day long, and it doesn't even ease up much at night!
One of the spots we wanted to see was Gantheaume Point. There's a lighthouse, fabulous views and some dinosaur footprints. We were there to see another spectacular sunset.


We found a seafood restaurant to dine in, on the pier overlooking Roebuck Bay and then returned to the resort to find another pillow gift. This one was tagged "Remember" and look what was inside:


It's a print of our camel group on Cable Beach by the official photographer. How special is that?? I 'm going to get it framed when I get home.
