Broomes Island

An area without specific boundaries, Broomes is not even an island per se, except during a very high tide or in a strong storm. It's made up of little more than a few houses and stores, a post office, and a church. This little area at the mouth of Island Creek is a portrait of a water-dependent community amid change: weather-beaten structures of its past now mingle with new, expensive waterfront homes.
