Day 45. Cape Leveque

After such a strenuous day yesterday we thought we might get off our butts and do something today. A short drive took us to Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm. This is the oldest Australian run pearl farm, and is the only working pearl farm you can visit in Broome. It is on the mainland while the others are either boat based or on islands. We learnt all about the history of the pearl farm, how they culture the pearls both in the past and now. We then were taught how they grade the pearls. The boys are all now experts in pearls. No purchases made though.\

Continuing on our tour we went to One Arm Point and another Aboriginal community and to the hatchery – fish and trochea shells. Tom tried his hand at fishing from the rocks there. No luck but at least he didn’t lose his rod to a fish like another bloke there.

Returning to Cape Leveque we drove down on to the beach, we had a swim and Tom did a spot of fishing.

We went back to the camp the boys had wood fired pizzas at sunset and once they had gone to bed Tom and I went out to dinner.
