Pearls and Planes

by Jo Durbridge | Jan 21, 2015

Deb's final day in the Kimberley! It was an absolute pleasure to host Deb as the winner of the 2014 Characters of the Kimberley Competition.  Thanks for being our Guest Blogger Deb,  and we hope to see you and Alistair back here in the North West!  Deb's final blog post... 

We had packed our bags and had one more great brekky on the boat. We said our farewells to the wonderful crew of The Great Escape as we boarded our boat pick ups for the Cygnet Bay Pearl Farm Tour.

This tour was informative and we even got to hold some expensive pearls!

Soon it was time to board and head to the airstrip to board the plane to head to Broome.

After arriving at Broome we then collected our other luggage and then boarded a bus to go to Broome Airport where we were dropped off to wait for our next plane to Perth then to head to Adelaide.

I left part of me in the Kimberley,  but also brought some of it home with me.

We arrived in Adelaide at 10.30pm  and home by 11.45pm,  a long day,  but 10 days of lifetime memories!
