From Kooljaman we went to Broome and stayed at the Broome Caravan Park.  The pool was awesome, coldist and fashionable.  When we were at the pool, in one of the trees there were two torny frog mouths they are very nice looking birds.

We had to move sites, the second site was really dusty but had a really cool tree to climb. 

Tghe next day we went to the market and i bought a bracelet and a necklace, the necklace had a lizard on it. 

We went to the Port and saw a sea snake, it was the colour of sand.

After Broome we went to Barn Hill Station and we stayed there for one night.  We watched the sun set that night, after going to the beach, there was really cool rock pools that had been carved out of the rock by the water,  I found a small sand crab.

The next day we went to 80 Mile Beach and there we stayed for two night even though i wanted to stay for 780 nights.  I really liked the beach and when the tide went out all you could see were shells until the mud flats.  We did some fishing but caught nothing but air again, i was told that a man caught a shark and a lady caught a little fish. 

There were no rock what so ever on this beach.  The four or us had a boat race with little shells.

From 80 Mile beach we went to Port Hedland, which is a small town about mining Iron Ore.   We saw salt work that all day every day poured salt out of a conveyor belt.

We went to the yacht club and had dinner it was yum.  They had a really cool playground that Mackenzie and I played a game in.

After dinner we went to watch the stair case to the moon which was very cool but the affect only last for a little while.  The Stair Case to the moon is a full moon reflecting of the water on the mud flats. 

The next day we packed up and went for breakfast at the Silver Star, it was delectable.  It was an old dining from America that was shipped out and craned onto a lawn.  The lady there gave us tasty chocolate freckles.

We left Port Hedland and went to Marble Bar.   We went to the Marble Bar pool which was surrounded by jasper rock which looks like marble, it had many colours and was very pretty.  The water was a little chilly and murky.

Just outside of Marble Bar there was an old secret World War 2 Airbase that is now only ruins. We all went and inpected the old ruins and saw there wasn't really ruins but outlines of concrete.  Me and dad were puzzled at what they may have been. We also saw the old air strip.
