- Red Cliffs, white sands -

(The awesome cliffs of James Price Point, just north of Broome)

On my week back we had our old buddy Duncan visit for a couple of days which was great. So Katie, Bren, Duncan and I went for a Sunday explore up the coast through Barred creek, right up to James Price Point which has the spectacular red earth cliffs falling away to white beaches and finally turquoise blue water…. What an awesome day, we set up shade on the beach and enjoyed a BBQ cooked on the back of the car.

Katie has left us back to the UK much to her disgust! She had a fantastic few months with Broome’s lifestyle getting right under her skin, so I'm sure she’ll be back!

Just Another Day

It’s been such a whirlwind month that I’m a little behind on the blog… its been fantastic though.

Just near the Prince Regent River I finally caught a Barra on live bait. It was an awesome fight with the fish jumping 3 times and running itself under the anchor rope… I finally landed the 67cm Beauty! You little ripper!! And boy was it yummy!

I even had a go at shooting clay pigeons off the bow with the boats shotgun… no hits but plenty of fun!

Later along the trip we came across a pod of Humpback whales with their calves… it was incredible with them breaching right beside the boat!

The Kimberley is alight at the moment with bushfires everywhere; the smoke creates a haze which makes a beautiful sunset! Its amazing that all this is just another day on the job!
