Notes from Perth

 

Hi all,
We arrived safely in Perth and are being well hosted by our friends here.  Today we went to Rottnest Island off the coast of Perth.  It’s a small island with cottages for rent and lovely beaches.  The little animal is called a Quokka.  They are related to kangaroos and hop.  The early explorers thought they were rats so named the the island Ratnest.  Beautiful weather, very warm!
