Moon over Broome!

Staircase to the Moon only happens at certain times of the year when the full moon rises and shines over the mud flats when the tide is low.

During our recent visit to Broome we were fortunate to see this happen from the grounds of our accommodation.

My camera is not the best, (a poor photographer always blames his camera) so I didn’t manage to capture everything as I wished.

A little higher and the first stair can be seen.

and this is what it is supposed to look like thanks to an advert.

During two of the three evenings when people can see the ‘stairway’ Broome holds a special stairway to the moon market.

Maureen and I visited the market before it went dark.

We preferred the weekend market in the local park –

As a consolation prize I managed to get to Matso’s, which is a local brewery. Diving for pearls and oyster shells helped create Broome and as time passed the divers moved on from skin diving to the deep sea style of diving.
The picture below is the closest that I wanted to get diving for pearls – anyway I had my work cut out tasting all the beers that this company produced.

Pearl’s Pale Ale, Mango Beer, Chilli Beer, Lychee Beer, Ginger Beer (not cordial, real beer),

Bishops Beer (Dark dry lager), Session Ale,

On our first evening we visited the Matso’s pub for a meal –


The tall glass with a yellow coloured liquid is a mango beer – not bad, but a little sweet for me.

The evening special was an Indian curry, which turned out very good.


Goat on the left, vegetable curry in the middle and fish (barramundi) curry on the right. The meal brought back memories of India it was that good.

Traveled a great deal - about 80 countries - first foreign country I suppose was Wales, which was only 80 miles away from where I was born. Visited each Continent, except Antarctica, and I doubt that it is on my bucket list - too cold. I love Asian food, Australian wine & British beer & trying to entertain by writing.
