Our trip to Rottnest

Well we have just come back from a lovely week in Rottnest. The IL's have a just started a job over there and they live on the island, so free accommodation! Its so beautiful there, no privately owned cars, so you have to walk places or ride your bike. There's only relaxing things to do, hang at the beach, drink coffee and go to the local yummy bakery, best vanilla slices I have ever tasted! Would have loved to go to the pub more but with the girls in tow, not a good look. Here are some snaps from our break. Totally OT from sewing....

DH and the girls at the Basin beach. I know they are small and you can't see them, just wanted to capture the blue of the sky and how clear the water is. Beautiful.

Grace and Milly picking out shells for one of many sand castles made.

Then they found a crab on the beach. Had to explain not to pick it up!

Just Grace at the beach!

Milly kicking back from sand castle making!

Feeding a quokka while having our lunch! Recognize the dress???!

Just a nice shot of the girls walking down to one of the beaches. This one wasn't far from where we were staying, would walk this way every time we went into "town", a mere 10 minute walk away.

This one I have included for my EB sewing buddies!

Helen, great pics. It looks absolutely beautiful and it is great to see a picture of you finally. Is your hair shorter than in your blog pic. It's a bit hard to tell with the hat on.

WOW! What a lovely place! Thanks for sharing the photos, they are great! It's nice to have you back too :)

WOW free accommodation at a place like that, how lucky are you guys? It looks as though you all had a fantastic time. Your girls are real little cutie pies, as soon as I saw that dress I remembered it was one you made.
Great to put a face to your name too.

Well we could always organize a sewing bee at the IL's house there if you all want to come over for it! LOL Cass, I have a chin length bob, kind of, I desperately need a hair cut! :)

Looks like a great time was had by all. And I think that pic of you looks completely different to the blog pic. It must be the hat.
