2005 Western Australia Adventure

Bev & Ed

August 18, 2005 through September 17, 2005

New adventures in Australia. We flew from Seattle to Los Angeles, then to Sydney and via Perth to Broome, Australia. A beautiful beach town similar to what Hawaii would have been like fifty years ago. Cable Beach is wide and sandy, the waters of the Indian Ocean impossibly turquoise. We stayed at the Cable Beach Resort which is one of our favorite spots ever.

Four day camping adventure into the Kimberleys with ten other people in a huge Izusu truck. Dirt roads, little civilization, tenting under the stars, surrounded by wildnerness. Hiked through amazing gorges, especially Windjana, Manning, and Bell. Swam in creeks and billabongs and literally shared them with fresh water crocodiles which are obviously not dangerous since I am sending you this e-mail. Details later.

Back to Cable Beach, then a few days of visiting tourist places such as the Willie Creek Pearl Farm. Then rented our own car for the drive south to Perth. We spent last night at Port Hedland, are now in Karratha, bound for Exmouth, then Monkey Mia to swim with the Dolphins. We may also drive south of Perth to the Margaret River region before flying from Perth to Melbourne where we will take our Austin Healey convertible on several short drives down the Mornington Peninsula and perhaps up to the Murray River regions.

We will fly home from Melbourne to Seattle On September 17.

Hello to all. Will appreciate e-mails (beved@msn.com) from anyone who reads this. We will send details later.

Love, Ed and Bev
