Broome sweet Broome :D

We finally made it!!

Late on Sunday (Mothers day) we finally arrived at our destination after 5 weeks on the road. Beautiful Broome!!
Andrew kindly allowed us to stay in his flat while we're here and its been great to see him. Izaak has enjoyed doing boys stuff with Andrew and Dad, going fishing the last 2 days and to the famous Cable Beach for a swim today.

He has also reconnected with his 'girlfriend' from our last trip, Gemma, who still lives us the back and has made a new friend, Cameron, who lives behind the property.

Dad has set himself up comfortably in his camper trailer on site too and there are numerous palm trees for shade (inclusive of coconuts), a trampoline and a swing made out of an excercise ball for Izaak to play on.
We saw the camels on Cable Beach and Ill include a pic from when we rode one last year cos Im not sure when we will get around to it this time!
Wont be doing heaps for the first couple of weeks as we have lots of school work to catch up on (both me and Izaak) but will enjoy the odd trip to the beach or waterpark. Ill also pop in a pic of the waterpark from last year. Also we went to the waterpark yesterday and Izaak found a starfish while digging at low tide!! So that was a bit exciting!

After we've caught up on schooling will start to do some touristy things in a couple of weeks time and will keep the blog updated with anything interesting or significant. Thanks to all our family and friends for joining us on our journey through the blog and hope you have enjoyed it!!

Does this entry mean we will miss the photos I was so waiting to see!!
These pics are great though.
Thanks for sharing your exciting journey Sheena!!!!
Love to you all. Mumma xxxxx


Thanks for the comments Mum. The 2nd, 3rd and 4th pictures are of Izaak at Cable Beach when we went yesterday. I didnt go with him and Andrew cos I was studying. What is it you were so hoping to see? The nudist pictures??

by Sheena Coughlan

Yes Sheena. I was waiting for the Nudist pics.
Looks like I miss out.
Sounds like they are only old men anyway so no loss there!!


Thank you Sheena for a great insight into your trip to Broome. Great pics & your writing is excellent. Too bad pop didn't write a few paragraphs as his usually got something to add. I look forward to more entries about Broome & pop.

by Uncle Kevin

Aww sorry Mum. Will make sure we get some next time xx

by Sheena Coughlan

Thanks Uncle Kev :) Thanks for ur interest in our trip. Yeah Pop has had plenty to say in person, you will have to have a word to him about putting in an entry. He hasnt read the second half yet! He's not that computer savvy yet but enjoyed checking out all the photos you put on his computer. Will try to keep you updated on what he's up to :) He seems pretty content in his tent under the palm trees and has been fishing a few times...Hope all well down your way. Say hi to Teresa and the girls for us xx

Hi Auntie Carmel :) Thank you, glad to have you along for the journey. Hope all well with you. Say Hi to Monique and Nanna for us xx

by Sheena Coughlan

Are you settled yet?
When do I book my flight over?
Is there room in the caravan?

by Uncle Shane

Haha Hi Uncle Shane :)
I guess you could say we are settled if thats what you call it! Well Dad is anyway. Come over whenever ur ready, there is no caravan but Dad has a spare bed in the camper trailer. Maybe come before cyclone season tho :)

Ive enjoyed seeing all your photos, look forward to hearing from you again soon. Love Amanda. xx
