Northwest Cape, Western Australia

A great video about Northwest Cape and Exmouth today. I was stationed at Naval Communication Station Harold E. Holt forty years ago when there was no internet, no television, and only one radio station which covered the Gascoyne and Pilbara regions. Many new arrivals at the base suffered from culture shock and shopping withdrawals a psychological condition known as the “cape blahs” until they adjusted to not being able to have instant gratification.
