Spending a few days in the lovely WA town of Broome. Fixing the motorbikes as well as the support truck before we venture up the Kimberly coast and then onto the Canning Stock Route.
Broome is proving to be a super-friendly town and we are getting to know our neighbours at the caravan park: Caravan Park living is a new lifestyle for me and is proving to be agreeable for the short periods that we spend in them. One drawback has been the absence of camp-fires, which we enjoyed when we were bush-camping. The hot showers, pools and laundry facilities more than compensate……but still there is something missing!
I spent a lovely evening at dinner with a terrific couple….Russell and Nick last night at the Cable Beach Club.We reminisceed about the old days clubbing in both Melbourne and Sydney……and Sue Heenan, our friend in common, who introduced us. Sydney and Melbourne seem like a world away from laid back Broome
We have now replaced worn tyres, tightened chains, replaced lost bolts on the bikes and now await Paula’s arrival tonight and Rob’s tomorrow night, with my new ipod. The guys have been enjoying music while they ride and I’ve finally decided to join them….quite a leap of faith in technology: my first ipod!
