Finally here!

We are staying with Callum & Sarah, our good friends here, before we move into the apartment. They live in Roleystone, a rural suburb SE of Perth centre in the hills. A very peaceful place, surrounded by Eucalyptus trees and the occasional friendly possum and kookaburra. Evenings of good chat, food and local wines...

Checked out the apartment on the first day. Seems like a ton of things to do like getting a car, mobile phones set up etc. Weather here hot with a short spell at 38 deg - thankfully not for long.

Joined Callum & Sarah on their annual Australia Day cruise on 26th (they were hosts for the event via their business ) up the Swan River from Freemantle to the fireworks over Perth city. Poor Tel unable to come due to man-flu but met a few Dolphin Scuba customers who shared the low down on Perth living. 

We're taking off for a few days down South. Our shipment from the UK with our furniture and other belongings is frustratingly delayed. We've moved into the apartment, camping style, borrowing airbeds and fold up table/chairs etc from C & S but not quite the same as having our own stuff here.

Were the fires near Roleystone? It sounds familiar. Hope they were ok.

They were - and incredibly close. The fire was c400m from their house at one stage. If the wind had been blowing in the normal direction, the house would have gone.

Hope all good with you?
