NIKKI: Monday, July 19th - Got up early, ate breakfast, and did a bit of sightseeing before we managed to catch a departing bus heading westward.

On the outskirts of Darwin, we meet on the bus with a guy and his girlfriend---they were both around the same age as Jonesy and myself---and they were heading out to see the camels and go pearling around Broome, WA.

Yes, Virginia, there are camels there. Cable Beach, which this pic shows us frolicking at, is located 7km away from Broome, and is...
[....] 22.5 km long with beautiful white sand washed clean daily by tides that can reach over nine metres. The water is crystal clear turquoise, and the gentle swells hardly manage to topple over as they roll up onto the almost perfectly flat beach. Caution, however, is required when swimming from November through March as box jellyfish are present during those months. Four wheel drive vehicles may be driven onto the beach from the car park. This allows people to explore the beach at low tide to a much greater extent than would be possible on foot.

Sunset camel rides operate daily along the beach.
Told ya there were camels! [link]
Cable Beach is home to one of Australia's most famous nudist beaches. The clothes optional area is to the north of the beach access road from the car park and continues to the mouth of Willie Creek, 17 km away.
Hmmm... better not mention this part to Jonesy....!

And thank goodness we don't have to worry about those darn jellyfish this time of year. They can be quite deadly should you ever step on one underwater!

And Broome has an active pearling industry, cultivated pearls harvested here around Roebuck Bay since about 1879.



NIKKI: Tuesday, July 20th - Arrival in Broome after an evening, overnight and early morning trip.... and a nice sleep!

Fair, tropical Broome! Jonesy and I plan to spend a day or two here. Its warm beach with white sand and turquoise waters feels so beautiful!

As for the picture, well, how Jonesy managed to get me photographed in my bikini, I'll never know....

But hey, he likes seeing me wearing it, and I like wearing it for him. :)
And also for myself because I like it, too!

And such a great boyfriend he is! Look at him! He's about to throw me another pass of the replica officially-branded AFL football we bought ourselves back in Brisbane. Annnnd he might be thinking about throwing me a slightly longer pass, long enough for me to miss catching it, lose my balance, and fall backwards into the warm water and getting me all wet!

Well, if he does follow through with his devilish plan, have I got a surprise for him!


Another what-if postcard and journal entry from two 1½th-year university students Jonesy and Nikki, exploring the Land Down Under.

Let me guess. The camels were part of some peoject the military was experimeting with? The United States Army tried that back in the mid 1800's.

Well, shows what I know. Here's some info about the Camels the U.S. military was working with. [link] Intriguingly enough I also found that camels were briefly experimented with during the Cariboo Gold Rush [link] Interesting (but digusting)pack animals they are.
