Cable Beach - Her beauty and her terror


Beneath the waters of Roebuck Bay and out into the depths of the Indian Ocean, grow the wild oysters which lured pearling masters such as Ancell Gregory, and led to the inhumane conditions for divers endured by enslaved indigenous boys and desperate Japanese islanders. Yet the beauty on the surface is bewitching.

Oh yes sunset, thank you. I will one day get to Cable Beach to see if for myself. In the meanwhile I will be satisfied with the gull flying into the sunset. Lovely.

This reminds me so much of my own visit to Broome in August 2008. The sunsets and locale are beautiful.

Stunning. And deceptively serene, I think?
