Broome Holiday

First of all - here's the reason we went to Broome - to celebrate our daughter's 21st with her - she went off backpacking in April and got a job there and hasn't moved on....yet....
Here she is with her new best friend Dom............!!!!



Our baby has grown into a delightful, independent, young lady whom we are so very proud of :)



Words can't describe the beauty of the coastline in the Kimberley - this pic was at Gantheaume Point, not far from Broome.



Apart from seeing our lovely daughter, the lure of the ocean was a bonus for Mr GetSilvered.......here he is showing off his spoils from a day on the beautiful azure ocean



But it wasn't all blue skies and Azure oceans - we had fun at ladies day for the Broome Racing Carnival - nothing like the combo of alcohol, horses, designer labels and red dust! I won $45 on my first bet.....and promptly lost it all on subsequent bets, but it was better than losing my own money!



The hat was too big I might add (I'm the short person!), and is a little worse for wear after being shoved in the suitcase for the trip home!

Finally I'll finish this post with another shot taken from Gantheaume point - I honestly think this is God's own country and my little holiday snaps no way do it justice :)

Ha Ha,
Thanks Miss Dot - I'll have to go to a Melbourne Cup lunch now to wear it again.
The local Broome Shops were doing a roaring trade in hats, Dresses etc before Ladies Day.

All the women were dressed up to the nines and all the blokes were in jeans & T Shirts - at least they didn't wear singlets!
