Caption: At the Broome Women's Co-operative I met Sally Donahue who is a silk painter and woman of the sea. I bought her piece of silk painting, which encircles this quilt. 'Anchor' in the Aboriginal and cultural sense means 'standing steadfast in the water'.
While flying back to Broome from Cape Leveque, we followed the coastline about 500m off shore and at 500 ft. The colours and landscape are stunning, isolated and virgin clean like striped gossamer, a very comfortable place on the western seaboard of Australia
