“I Wasn’t Expecting Cable Beach to Look so Romantic atDusk”
This was my first visit to Cable Beach, and I couldn’t wait to do the infamous camel ride at sunset. Half way through the ride we were turning back and I saw the amazing sunset, I had to take a photo to remember that incredible Thursday.
The vastness of Cable Beach shocked me and I was honoured to be part of an Aussie icon at that moment. I wasn’t expecting Cable Beach to look so romantic at dusk; it really took my breath away. The fresh air and ocean breeze was cooling after a warm day and if I leaned down close enough to my camel I could smell him too.
I look back at my time in Broome and Cable Beach with a smile and see it as the highlight of my journey around Australia.
On my last night in Broome I ventured out to photograph the stars with my best friend. I can never get used to the novelty of seeing a blanket of stars above me, making me feel both infinitely small and yet part of something large and powerful.
As we started our day we talked about there being something in the air at Monkey Mia that makes you feel like you belong. Just offshore we could see a pod of dolphins and some seabirds catching their morning snacks.
The Margaret River Surf Pro was on when I was in town and it was a great bonus for us. The beach is set up like an amphitheater and sitting on the boardwalk watching the world’s best surfers was a real treat.
Western Australia is famous the world over for its wildflowers. Each year, from Exmouth to Esperance, the land explodes with colour, starting in June in the north, 12,000 species of wildfower roll down the state to finish in November in the south.
