Day 146 – 8/10/2019 on a Midlife Adventure.

The temp has come down a little but the humidity is rising. This is the joy of the build up to the wet season.

Today it was time to get in and tour the actual Broome, WA city region.

The tour ran for about an hour and was very informative and a great way to get to know more about Broome, including some information on the Japanese bombing during WWII.

Dropping into the pub for a drink, it is important to keep your fluids up in the high humidity.
