Mar 24, 2013 - Midvale - Sunday 24/3/2013

The alarm went off at 6.30am as today we were heading to catch a ferry at Perth terminal around 8.30 to Rottnest Island. Trying to find a safe overnight park near the terminal was easy especially when you get a police escort,they had roads blocked off for an event so a motor bike policeman said he would escort us.lol What a gorgeous day the sun is shining and there's no wind a perfect day to cruise the bays of Perth,we found a great seat at the back of the ferry ordered a coffee and a cookie and sat back and enjoyed the great views.

Had bacon & eggs cooked on the BBQ then had a very pleasant drive to York, Western Australia's oldest inland city. Had lunch at the York Mill although I really wasn’t hungry after the big breakfast. After we got home Neil & I watched the Malaysian Grand Prix then had a beautiful Cassoulet Susan had cooked in the slow-cooker while we were out.

Mar 22, 2013 - Fremantle

Neil took the day off work & we walked to the fishermen's wharf at Fremantle for lunch of fish & chips at Cicerello's (the first of many, I'm sure). Then we wandered across the road to the Shipwreck Galleries & had another look at the Batavia. Neil & Susan have recently been to Geraldton & flew out to the Abrolhos Islands so he was very interested & up-to-date with the Batavia story.

Mar 21, 2013 - Midvale - Thursday 21/3/ 2013

Just what we felt like eggs on toast with a hot cup of English breakfast on awakening. Mal had bought a couple of things for the van one was a light to go over the makeup mirror and 2 extra power points,so Thursday was the day he decided to put them in while I washed all our towels. As it was a very fiddly job putting in the power points it took up most of the day,he had bought a soldering iron which wouldn't heat properly that was disappointing o we took that back before heading to my niece Melissa's place. It was really good seeing her...

Mar 21, 2013 - Melbourne to Perth

Continued on to Perth. We left about 1/2 an hour late - seemed to wait on the runway forever waiting for our turn. A very smooth flight & Neil was there to meet me. Had a guided tour of the new house which is quite spectacular although it's still a work in progress with on-going renovations. He looks well & has no lasting effects from the Christmas stroke. We bought some pink snapper for dinner, plus white wine & bourbon so had a good night. Susan got home from work about 7:00 looking very tired - I think this job is really taking its toll.

Had a really good sleep and a breakfast of eggs on toast ready to start the day. Mal is ringing around to find out who is going to cover our battery warranty seeing the mechanic yesterday said it was on the low side and seeing that we only bought it in January,one lucky thing is they cover it nationwide,it's just finding the places to swap it over. How wonderful it is having Internet and GPS you can find the places you need and get taken there by the press of a few buttons. All we can do now is wait for the guy to ring when our car is...

Engagement honeymoon

Mar 3, 2013 - Perth

Today we were up early to get some face time chatting in with family. Once we finished that up, we packed up all our stuff and headed to the beach for breakfast! We took our own bowls and had fresh fruit and cereal on the sand and watched the kids get washed up on the shore in the waves. We sat at the beach for a while enjoying the morning sun then were on the road back to Perth. We stopped at the info booth in Margaret River to ask about a scenic route back to Perth. We were able to locate it and started back on it. Along this route there...
