All good things ....

What can I say? Our holiday is at an end. We had a great time and again are indebted to:

  • Annie & Rich for the loan of the van and car
  • Ben & Ves, Brielle, Zoe and Codi for great company, fun times plus a little supervision and guidance!
  • Helen & Harry for kindly offering to take the van back to Alice thereby saving us some driving days
  • Mick & Annie for "looking after" (see below) Digbee!

While we were madly packing and handing over the van to Harry & Hellen, Ben and Ves surprised us with this ...

Look! Owl! Where?
Actually it just occurs to me - Are they celebrating our parting a little too much?
Happy Birthday Kath (for the 22nd)!
While thinking of Broome and "class" I remembered these photos taken at our previous Broome caravan park (Cable Beach). There were pockets of immaculately kept sites, daily raked free of leaves (possibly twice daily) and presented carefully with seashell decorations for the next arvo's grey nomad soiree! Noice!!

Then there was our sites ...

The ibis were fine judges ...

On one of our last days we ventured down to Cape Gantheaume to checkout the dinosaur footprints only seen at extra low tides. I say ventured because the slippery rocks had "orthopaedic ward" written all over them.

On arrival the actual site of footprints wasn't obvious. We thought we would just have to wait for this ABC3 camera crew to move on so we could check out what they were filming. Turns out they had no idea either and were faking it! The day was saved with a bit of mobile phone google work from Ben and a serendipitous finger point by Hannah (she was pointing at a fish actually)!

Annette sent some reassuring pictures showing how Digbee was being looked after. The Sydney Swans' have made the finals - could their form be attributable to their new team mascot?

A great holiday and great places to visit! Amazing dry season weather!
We'll be back (God knows when)!
