Sorry about denying you my erudite musings for a week but I have been soothing my fevered brow with a week off on Rottnest Island.:-) For those of you who don’t know it, it is basically a Greek island off the coast of Perth. There are no cars allowed on it, the beaches are great and there is not much else to do but eat, drink and be merry. It’s hell on earth!:-) And it is populated by cute little marsupials called quokkas and, funnily enough, peacocks. The most incredible thing about this picture is that photos taken on my camera’s phone are normally of this quality.
And, seeing as I am still in holiday mode, this post is going to be a pile of junk. Or, more correctly, just a pile of photos that I found in a folder when I downloaded the peacock one from my phone. Like this natty display of toy cars. 🙂 Or these two photos of real Tudor buildings, you know the kind you would see in the show ‘The Tudors’, funnily enough. 🙂 This one shows how we can successfully blend heritage with commercialism 🙂 while this one, believe it or not, can be found down a grotty little laneway in Gloucester.
