Sunday, April 07, 2013      2 comments

Knowing that we were going to take a 1 hour ferry ride to Rottnest Island this morning, I got up and took my bonnine early. The ferry ride wasn't too choppy and, while I looked for whales, dolphins, and seals, I didn't see any. Rottenest Is... Read more

Today we started out with a tour of the Swan Bell Tower. This tower is an architectural wonder that I can only describe as a futuristic looking space ship. The views of Perth and the Swan River from the tower are fantastic. There are 18 bells in... Read more
