Paul usually walks Tills first thing in the morning while I slowly ease into the day. I don’t know what came over me today, a bit of a mad moment perhaps. I awoke just before 6am, Paul was still sleeping, so I thought, ‘what the heck.’ I dressed as quietly as I could, and was heading out the caravan door with Tills just as Paul awoke with a look of surprise. I told him which way we were going and before I’d reached the caravan park gate he had joined us.
A short walk and we were on the beach with one happy little dog. I’m reminded that our frequent holidays in Broome, together with our daily walks on Busselton beaches provided the inspiration for acquiring a dog. These two places are doggie heaven and it just didn’t seem right to be walking in doggie heaven without a dog.
I’ve had in mind to find some pink abstract pictures for our bedroom walls. Today’s sunrise reflected in the wet sands had me thinking…..
I’m sure enough pink sunrises here and I’ll be able to play around with the photos to create my own group of pink abstracts.
A quiet day with a bit of business to attend do, and a good chance to change and wash the bed linen. Then cooking and packing up dinner to take to the beach with friends at sunset. Tonight’s dinner is a honey soy cooked chook, with jasmine rice, and a side of pickled vegetables. I love how pickled vegetables can elevate an otherwise bland meal.
We headed away from the main beaches to the quieter and very picturesque, Reddell Beach. It’s located down a rough dirt track, so that keeps the hoards away. Our two favourite beaches for photo opportunities are Reddell Beach, and then Entrance Point.
And of course we had to have our obligatory ‘cable beach sunset’ cocktails before dinner. This has become a bit of an institution for us and our friends, and I’m sure Brian and Kaye would feel very neglected if we failed in our bar tending duties. It’s our take on a Tequilla sunrise, but usually we make it with vodka. Tonight though I had Tequilla, but as we’re in Broome it’ll still be called, ‘Cable Beach Sunset’.
I mentioned the beach was less accessible than the popular cable beach. That definitely proved to be the case. The rough track to get there was fine, but I’d forgotten about the trek from the car park to the beach. Fine if you’re just going there for a walk and to admire the sunset, but lugging chairs, dinner and cocktails. – note to oneself, ‘not a good idea’.
Dinner and company was good, but there was a cool breeze blowing. We loaded up and lugged everything back to the car not long after the sun dropped over the horizon and back to the caravan park for ice creams, and a cuppa.
