Going native

Travelling around these wide open spaces, and then camping with wildlife and others nearby, can drive people to do things I suppose they don’t usually do. Broome for example has a nude end of its beach.

Normally not an area we would stray onto, not that there’s anything wrong with exposing yourself to the elements, apart from burning your bits in the sunshine, getting melanomas, ” sorry mr Hornblower you seem to have a spot on your……” 

But as we walked back from our long morning walk the regulars are setting up for their stint.

This couple were playing bocce in the sand. Every time we walked towards them (no we weren’t doing circles!) they turned their back on us. 

The fisherman as we neared him seemed to have a belt with something like a cod piece on. As I got closer I could see it was a knife belt and his bait container strategically placed.

But what is it with the hats? Avoiding the glare I suppose.


And then there was the German girl who took her top off. Now my friends jane and Rohan were sitting next to her when I arrived. What could I do but draw her.
