Good light in Broome

I'm off to Broome and the Kimberleys for three weeks

Roebuck Bay

Geikie Gorge




No blogging in the bush but plenty of time for writing I hope.

I'll leave you with the last verse and chorus of a Neil Murray song: 'Good light in Broome".
This man is a much underestimated Australian singer-songwriter who writes about the back country in a way no one else does.

Good light in Broome,
well I’ll be there soon
I know exactly what I’m a gonna do
Sit on the beach, stare at the moon
Haven’t you heard? there’s good light in Broome

Well when I get to Cable Beach, I’ll fall right out of the truck and into the sea
With my clothes still on, I’ll plunge under the waves
And all the dirt will drain away
And just like Bunjil, I’ll get two dogs
And every evenin’ I’ll walk them along
On the edge of the country, take in the view
Just like I heard, there’s good light in Broome

Good light in Broome,
well I’ll be there soon
I know exactly what I’m a gonna do
Sit on the beach, stare at the moon
Didn’t I tell ya? there’s good light in Broome
