Walking from our Hotel Mercure Broome, Zeb and Eider Duck found Town Beach.
There is a great water area for kids there, even before we got to Roebuck Bay.
Small humans and parents can get into the pools or play in the water fountains. They were having a great time. A large grassy park is also there. We loved this bridge.
Pioneer Cemetery is also located at Town Beach.
Here is the marker for Diamond Jack Palmer.
What a great name! This marks the final resting place of Captain Harry Talboys.
He was a Sea Captain and Master Pearler. Broome was built by sea captains and the pearl industry. Not be forgotten, this is were the casualties from the first air raid on Broome were taken during World War II.
Isn’t this a pretty beach?
As you can see, the tide is pretty high now.
We liked this crow like bird, even if he was very noisy.
Tonight is a full moon, so there is a special event at Town Beach. During some months of the year, when the moon is full and the tide is low, the light of the moon reflects on the mud flats and it looks like there is a stairway to the moon. Tonight is Stairway to the Moon, and we are here, in Broome, Western Australia.
The Stairway to the Moon is best viewed from Town Beach.
We liked the Stairway to the Moon and there was a festival there also. It was a lot of fun with great food. At the festival we visited many craft booths. The food booths were so tempting. The closest neighbors to Broome, Australia are Indonesia, New Guinea, Malaysia, Singapore and other islands. As result the craft booths had so many items we don’t usually see at home. Incredible wood carvings and so much more. The aromas from the food booths were truly making us salivate. A warm tropical evening, full moon, new and appealing fragrances and a Stairway to the Moon. . . This truly was a night to remember. It was too dark for photos. Just look how dark this tropical sky is tonight.
We hope you are in Broome, or Western Australia, sometime to see the Stairway to the Moon.
