Broome to Cape Leveque

Had 4 nights in Broome, recharging our travel weary bodies! :-) Some fishing, and shopping and finding dinosaur footprints as well as seeing Annie's Mum and Dad, Helen and Harry. Helen's birthday last night we ate out, a rare treat.
Have now arrived at the Cape of Eden! Cape Leveque. 200 kms north of Broome. About 100 kms of dirt, but the road was better than some we have travelled, and the van stayed almost dust free except for the door, so that was good. Stopped off at Beagle Bay to see an amazing church that had lots of mother of pearl in the floor, in the lecturn, in the paintings, and the architecture was almost Spanish in design.
Arrived at Cape Leveque to a very windy reception but we are hoping it will blow itself out by tomorrow. Had a fish in the afternoon with Moses catching his first ever Queenfish. The swimming beach looks like a lagoon at a tropical island, will add photos and videos later. The fishing beach has some fantastic red cliffs, may even paint some of these.
We finally found a hat for Ruby that is to her liking and is wide-brimmed whilst in Broome. Photos to follow.
It is still hard to believe we are here, and we have so many wonderful photos and memories from the first two and a half weeks. It is lovely to be able to share some of the trip with Helen and Harry.
The car and van continue to serve us well.
Even though we are remote here, there would still be close to 75 others around the place, so not quite all alone in the north of WA but it is no surprise as even though the weather is not fantastic, the place is stunning.

More later,
