30th - Tuesday
Stayed at a free site in the bush last night with Helen and Glenn. Got up this morning and continued the drive to Broome. Arrived at about 5ish, and they dropped us off at a campsite just down the road from cable beach. They were absolutely great. They drove in to drop our bags off on our pitch and helped us unload. Then, when it came to petrol money, said that they only wanted $30 each from us. We had been watching how much fuel they had been putting in the truck, and it was at least $300 worth. So we paid about 12 quid each, for a 1000km trip in a comfy car with air con and two lovely people. We were chuffed to bits. And now we were in nice warm Broome, just by the beach and on a lovely campsite. Said bye to Helen and Glenn and went for something to eat at the Divers tavern.

31st - Wednesday
Hired a car for the day so we could get about to town and some of the sights. Put up posters asking for a lift down the west coast, as far as we could get. Went to Gantheaume Point, which is where some 120 million year old dinosaur prints are embedded in the rock out at sea. You can only see the originals when there is an extremely low tide so we had to settle for the casts on display.
Lauz and I went on a camel ride along Cable beach at sunset. Cable Beach is a perfect setting to watch the sunset. It was a beautiful evening and it was one of those moments where I felt sure that I would much rather be here than back at home.

2nd June - Friday
Tom left for home yesterday... BYE TOM......
Yesterday, a guy called Aran called to say he had room for 3 people in his car if we wanted a lift with him all the way to perth. We decided to meet up so we could discuss where he wanted to go and where we wanted to go etc. So we met him on the beach. He's from Israel and seems like an alright chap. He has a station wagon to himself, so loads of baggage space. He also wants to go to exactly the same places as we wanted. So we all agreed and would leave this Saturday. First stop would be Karijini National park. That night we went out in town. Looking at Broome during the day, you would never think there were several bars and nightclubs in town. Town looked a bit like Clarks Village but with a little bit of China chucked in so that a small part of town could be known as 'Chinatown'. We ended up in an outdoor pub-club called oasis, which was actually quite a decent place. Had a few bevvies, got bombarded by a drunk aborigine, breakdancing at us and left.
