I’ve arrived at the pearl farming town of Broome today. Some 2,200 kilometers north of Perth and completely the opposite side of Australia to Sydney. It’s summer here…yep…thawing out in the 32-degree heat whilst checking out the main beach, Cable Beach.
Cable Beach was named in honour of the Java-to-Australia undersea telegraph cable, which connects us to the rest of the world. It’s a big beach and the best way to view all 22 km’s of it is in a R44 chopper (or Camel back). Apparently it gets surf after major cyclones pass – I’ve seen photos of it cranking – but not today.
Can’t believe the water colours…mind blowing. Oh and the water temp is something like 25 degrees – warmer than a spa.
Back home in Sydney it looks to be a corker with good small waves. Best get down there. Tomorrow should be fun too.
It’s race day here, Broome Cup this week. Seeya punters :: uge
