Overseas Trip!

We went overseas last weekend! Well.........sort of! We went to Rottnest Island which is 19 Kilometres off the coast of Fremantle. It takes about 40 - 45 mins by Ferry. Here's our Ferry. Neil, Ana & Sarah all ready to go. We went to a group from my work - which was lovely. It was great to get together outside of work. It was a fantastic work function. Thank you for taking us. The Island is 11 kilometres long and 4.5 kilometers at it's widest point. You can hire a bike and ride around (it's a 24km ride). When we got there we took the local bus around the Island, to have a look around. As you can see from the pic's Rottnest has beautiful beaches, flora and fauna and these little guys......they are Quokka's. They hop around the place and are quite cute. This one walked across in front of us when we got off the Ferry......he was off to get a drink from a drain.

Here is Jo-ann and Diane on their Bikes.

After a free morning - looking round R0ttnest - we met everyone for a lovely Lunch at the Rottnest Hotel.

Here is Ana sitting with the Girls - Sarah, Nicole & Natasha.

Rod, Darcy, Jack (who's hiding behind Darcy) Kathleen and Graham.

Matthew, Jacinta & Melissa.

Diane, Vincent, Jo-ann & Graham

A Quokka came to lunch too!

After lunch we did various things, some biked, some relaxed with a few beers or wines, some played cricket or Frisbee on the beach. Sarah and I played in the water at the beach.

What a fantastic day we had. We definitely want to go back to Rottnest. It's laid back, beachy and perfect for a day trip or short getaway.
