we have finally reached Broome, the excitment is palpaple in the van, everyone is ready to blow off some steam and have a nice cold beer. we are arriving in the late afternoon and our first stop is to relax and have a beer. there is a great independant bar and brewery called The Matso's Broome Brewery. we each got a pint of different beer. monsoonal is the one I got. i have never had a beer that was so perfectly brewed to be consumed on a hot summers day. the others we got were: Hit the toad, Mango Explosion and ginger beer. We also had some testers of their newest beer, cant remember what it was called but it had chilli in it. it was the oddest beer i have ever had, it actually had a bite to it and burned your tongue in the after taste. it is definitely a must have.
as it is our first night we are going to hit up the local club, Oasis, we actually found the dutch girls there, it was nice to see them again. the oasis closes early though i think around 12 or 2 am. so we moved to the one that is open late but because of a stupid rule i got kicked out of denied entry to the second club.
We are so hung over today. we are lucky enough to be in the town for something called staircase to the moon. the staircase to the moon is when the full moon rises over the exposed mudflats of roebuck bay at extremely low tide creating the optical illusion of a staircase reaching for the moon. The staircase occurs three nights each month from March to October.
i ate a massively big breakfest today at a local cafe, it was so expensive but so good. i had eggs benedict with mushroom, spinach, and salmon. it is so hot here that ice cream is essencial, so i have decided to go to a local ice cream place that offers homemade ice cream. it was really good and tastes homemade but if you want to save a few dollars buy it from coles.
we have started planning for our kimberly trip. we are thinking about renting a four wheel drive and do a week then come back and pick up the car from broome.
