Big Momma - 6 years old and as you can see from my face loving every minute of it....not
The alarm went off at 7 this morning, you so can only imagine how good I felt!!! funny though when I got up, there was bodies in sleeping bags littered all over the grass, and some of those still hadnt stirred when we left at 8.....first stop was Hutt River Province, where we got to listen to Prince Leonards story about how and why he seceded from Australia. Apparently a unique experienc and part of the Oz history, but honestly it was a run down place and I really hadnt had enough sleep to get anything from this, you could even add another stamp to your passport if you wished, but didnt have mine with me so didnt!! Along the way back to Perth
we stopped at the Greenough Wildlife Park - the home of a python breeding centre, now this was worth stopping at, there was a croccadile there but he didnt get out of the water so didnt get to see him, but fed Ostrich, fiesty little buggers, then got to feen the cutest of kangaroos that had been hand reared and even got to go into their enclosure, they were so cute and with such soft fur.

Next it was too meet the Pythons, now I can honestly say that I had no wish to touch one of these, but bowed under pressure as everyone else was, I did it but can honestly say didnt particularly enjoy it, especially the big momma that was wrapped round my neck. Then we had the long slog back to Perth, which I basically slept the whole way, wot a surprise! The trip was absolutely amazing and so much more than I could have expected, we covered about 3300 kilometers (just over 2000 mile)
