Needless to say...we have loved Broome. Not only is it a beautiful place, but we have made new friends and enjoyed a great time of fellowship with the people from Broome Anglican. It's exciting to see the bible taught faithfully in the north west of WA.

We decided to explore north of Broome, so packed our camping gear in the ute and drove off. It wasn't long before we hit dirt road and were on it for nearly 100kms. The next 100kms was back to tar before we reached One Arm Ponit. We also dropped in to Cape Leveque before driving to Middle Lagoon to camp the night.
Kicking back and relaxing at the Sun Pictures in Broome. It's the oldest outdoor cinema in Australia. We loved the atmosphere of lying back on deck chairs under the stars as we watched a movie on the big screen. To add to the atmosphere planes took off from the airport just behind the cinema and roared over our heads (only twice). It was really cool!!!
Here we are with Doug, the driver of the extraordinary taxi. For those who didn't hear about the 'extraordinary taxi ride' it was a way of promoting WA tourism. People all over the world followed this taxi ride as Doug drove various tourists around WA for 9 weeks. It was followed by Sunrise and the 7pm project. His final destination was here in Broome.

Here are some photos of our time away in Palm Cove. We had such a fantastic time and loved every minute of our time spent with family and of course celebrating with Jess and Mark!!! We will treasure the memories and were glad to be part of such a special time. Enjoy the photos, it was so hard to know which ones to put in as I took nearly 300!!!
Very exciting!!! This is the start of our trip to Jess and Mark's wedding. We caught a plane from Broome to Darwin and then Darwin to Cairns. The girls just giggled and giggled as the plane sped up to take off and were shouting we're flying, we're flying!! Everything about the trip was exciting for them!
We spent part of the night in Darwin Airport as we had to check-in for our flight to Cairns at 3am!! The girls were amazing to be able to sleep in an airport that comes alive at night with flights constantly coming in and out. There were people everywhere and the voice over the loud speaking never stopped!!! Chris and I got about 15mins sleep, while the girls managed about 5 hours.
