We’ve shown you other photos of beautiful Cable Beach, but here’s another handful.
It’s 14-mile stretch of white sand beach on the Indian Ocean just west of Broome. It was named after the telegraph cable that came ashore here in 1889 and finally connected Australia and the rest of the world.
It’s a wide, flat beach where white sands abut the red sands of the outback and the gentle blue waves of the Indian Ocean. On a busy day like today, in the middle of Australia’s spring school break, you may be be able to count about a hundred locals and tourists lazing the day away on Cable Beach. May is the key word.
Fourteen miles, one hundred people. Crazy, huh?
Looking one direction on Cable Beach. Where are all the people?
Looking the other direction. Believe it or not, this is Spring Break.
Cable Beach is wide and flat, so when the sun goes down it creates some very cool shadows.
How beautiful is this place?
Proof that geat clouds and great light can overcome mediocre photographic skills.
Hundreds of trucks, utes, and cars (including ours) crowd Cable Beach each evening. “Crowd” is probably the wrong word to use to describe a couple hundred vehicles spread out across 14 miles of beach.
