Cable Beach, Broome is a great place to live, beaches on 3 sides, including Cable Beach, often in the top 10 of beaches worldwide.

Here is a short video which gives a show of the dimension at low tide.

These shots below show more of it.

beach creature …

How would you like a tickle sunbathing on Cable Beach?

The beach sometimes turns up amazing critters. These images were of a ‘worm’ with a million legs, about finger thick, a couple of feet long and live under the sand. The first pictured here at first looked like a sea snake until up close, the legs were seen. Soon after I saw another one grab a shell like a python and drag it under the stand.

I hope they don’t get any bigger! This snail below just escaped.

Some Great Sandy Desert species. My wish is for any private garden here to look as good as some desert ecologic plant communities. Click to enlarge.

plant’s reproduction triggers …

Research on plant triggers that cause budding, flowering and fruiting is not all well understand. Here is a post that may show some light on a plant’s ability to bud at a certain part of the season, flower, even on the same day as all it’s relatives, regardless of it’s local ecology, and fruit or seeds ripening at the right time of year for optimum distribution.

My response was concerning local species of wattle that flower on the same day everywhere.

[…]The new findings are the culmination of twelve years of research involving scientists from Germany, Argentina and the US, as well as the Cambridge team. The work was done in a model system, a mustard plant called Arabidopsis, but Wigge says the phytochrome genes necessary for temperature sensing are found in crop plants as well.

“Recent advances in plant genetics now mean that scientists are able to rapidly identify the genes controlling these processes in crop plants, and even alter their activity using precise molecular ‘scalpels’,” adds Wigge. […]

Wyndham country, NE Kimberley …

Wyndham is an old town by Kimberley standards situated at the bottom of the Cambridge Gulf, where five rivers meet the sea, including the Ord River. A port for mineral exports and live cattle shipments to Indonesia, and occasionally produce from the Ord Irrigation scheme, now under further development by Chinese interests.

A few pics from a field trip to the Berkeley River, a hundred kms to the NWest. Click for full image.

Not a bad spot to cook dinner at all, @80kphkombilife 👌🏼These guys sure know what living is all about. The panoramic views from the Five Rivers Lookout in Wyndham is a spectacular sunset spot and vantage point to experience the vast and rugged country that surrounds the oldest town in the Kimberley. ☀️

activism rejects science …

Greenpeace Activism, the last refuge of scoundrels. Here is the latest waffle and a petition, along with the gullible congregation that pray at the Green altar of hypocrisy, commenting on social media.
