Jig along. that was an interesting piece of 4WDing you got me into!
(Unclenching the white knuckles now ;-) )

However, the view and the place were wonderful.

This is the lighthouse and rock formations around the Point. The red of the
soil and rocks was amazing. Some of these photos actually got close to how
red the soil was- and such a beautiful contrast to the blue sky.

That really was only a dirt road, and I am glad you went.

Did you go for a dip in that pool?

'That road' in a little car is like going rally driving! :-) and I'm glad I went too- at least it was only about 1 km. I couldn't see Anastasia's pool anywhere or the dinosaur footprints. Someone told me later that there used to be a bloke who went up there to tell the story to visitors but since he died there's been no one, so I missed out this time.

Hey D- Jig along will always run rings around me for the photography, mine is more enthusiasm than talent. :-)
Broome is a place you won't see replicated anywhere else and I could resist sharing the bits I saw (this time).

Jigalong is a great - and sensitive - photographer but it really is good to see these things from someone else's eyes too

Thanks D. And you're right about J- he's a good all-round bloke.
So when are you coming over? Just don't make it during the wet season (late Oct - May) 'cause you'll expire from the heat and moreso from the humidity in Broome. Sydney, however, is great during Oct - April - hot but bearable. Just depends on what you're used to I guess.
