Just another lazy Sunday ….

James Price Point

Just a few photos to share today.

The other weekend we spent the day with friends exploring a little more of the coastline north of Broome.  We drove up to James Price Point  – the beautiful pristine area that was in the media a few years back due to a proposed gas plant.  Many people protested, blocked roads, set up camps and through the courts stopped the plant from going ahead.  A beautiful area it is, a unique place, vitally important to the whales yet I was a little disappointed in the rubbish in the area.  All the other coastal areas I’ve seen to date in the area have had no rubbish yet this place in which so many fought to keep had cans, buckets and quite a lot of  little pieces of litter about ….

We finished our day hanging out at Barred Creek, fishing, swimming, shell hunting and sleeping in the shade …. not a bad way to spend a lazy Sunday.  Hope you like the pics – sorry no people photos today, but I really do enjoy taking landscape/nature shots! 🙂

This fellow had more patience than me. I waited and waited for him to poke his head out ….. but what an amazing shell he has!

Hi guys!
Just back from a wild weekend in The Alice, where 6 of us went to spend time with our beautiful indigenous women. On Monday we decorated the church & put on a Christmas lunch & 60-70 turned up (double what we expected!) But the food miraculously extended till all were fed with food left over. The kids ran riot, gifts were given, many were prayed for – just a fantastic day. We were so blessed!
Good to hear your latest. The coastline of W.A. is just stunning!
Love & blessings

That sounds wonderful Lorna! Looking forward to the day we visit Alice. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could coincide it with one of your visits.

I will put your name on the picture.

If you are ok, please advise what name shell I put on the picture.
