We wandered around Broome market. Not quite the Belmont market but there were plenty of things to look at. Chloe learnt a valuable lesson about always asking how much something is worth before buying it. The mango smoothie was an expensive $9.50!
We then went on the Pearl Luggers Tour to learn all about the pearling industry in Broome. The host was a Scottish backpacker who was absolutely brilliant and the best tour guide we have seen and heard on the trip. Both girls got to wear a $9000 necklace and hold a large pearl worth $100 000. Kelli was really nervous about them holding it. Afterwards we had a swim at Cable Beach. Emmy only lasted five minutes until she was stung by a jellyfish of some description. She was screaming "I have flames on my arm!" The lifesaver poured some vinegar over the wound and gave her a chunk of ice to numb the area. After a few hours it settled down but it was very painful.
