We caught ourselves 10 fish yesterday, so it was fish for dinner, to freeze and to pickle. Before dinner, I made the Crab and Croc Tour Karumba’s version of pickled fish as it was the first I’d ever tasted, and I loved it, and they kindly e-mailed the recipe to me recently. This, (including the caps)is posted as I copied it from the e-mail with my own instructions in brackets).

Today (Thursday 25th) we were about to go fishing when there was a knock at our door. It was Gail and Geoff of the blog Maccas Tracks Around Oz http://gmcbride1.wordpress.com/ I’ve been following their blog for some weeks now and realised we were here in the same park very close to each other when I read they were opposite the bakery. We are also opposite the bakery! Turns out we are about 3 vans apart. And it turns out, we were in Broome in the same park at the same time, and Tom Price. We visited Hamersley Gorge on the same day too. Amazing.
Fishing today was a bit lean, we only brought home three red throat emperor and one cod. I caught quite a big emperor though so I was happy about that.
