We've been in Oz for a couple of days now and we're having an absolute ball!!!! The flight was fantastic, I watched the wrestler, Grand designs and Ramseys kitchen nightmares and ate some great tucker!!!!! A quick taxi from the airport dropped us at the YHA where we were booked in for the next couple of days and we immediately dropped our stuff and went straight out to explore. A quick look around the shops to see how things had changed and then a waner down to Barrack Strret Jetty, a couple of drinks in the Brass Monkey and then onto the Hogsbreath cafe for salads, steaks, massive burgers and lashings and lashings of cheap ozzie plonk!!!!.
The next day it was straight onto a bus to take us down to Scarborough beach, which was absolutely beautiful and far nicer then I remember it being which makes a nice change!!!! The water was tropical turquoise and if not for Lipe would have gone straight to numero uno on the beachometer.
Freemantle was the next days expo but first we had to get out of our room and store our bags as we were moving to Julies that evening!!! Free acommo mate !!! Fair dinkum !!!! Freeo was great and Adventure Pea is no longer a blonde after having her mullet transformed and is now a beautiful brunette !!!! Snapper and chips for lunch at Ciccerillos, a good long walk and a fishing trip arranged were the other activities of the day before we headed back to Perth to pick up our bags and transport them down to Julies in Caream, Kaream, Cuream.
We're up at 5.30 the next day and out by 6 for Freeo to catch our boat for a full day fishing. We've rolls made by the Pea and crisps and a good supply of VB to keep us going...spirits are high..we're going for the big one!!!! watch out Moby here we come big boy!!!!! Two hours later spirits are still high but not a bite has been had, three hours later the same but the first VB has been popped.............. four hours ...same....more VB, six hours later, we've had a bite and we're down to the last couple of VB's, eight hours later we've had various bites, Chris had his whole line snapped by a big one but out of 24 people not a single fish has been caught.
