Woke up at 8am feeling rather worse for wear and to discover that the mossies got me (finally) the night before. I've managed three whole weeks with only one mossi bite then get three nasty ones all in one go.
Felt very woosy but we got ourselves ready and headed into Subiaco (a very nice part of the city) for a very nice breakfast at the Subiaco hotel with a couple of Sarah's friends ... which helped to make us feel a little more human at least. Louise sat and gloated about how well she felt so I reminded her of her hangover the Friday before and she soon shut up.
After a bit of a wander round the very lovely shops in Subi, we drove back to Sarah's then Lou and I headed back to Port Kennedy to get ready for the big barbie planned for that afternoon. All I wanted to do at this point was go back to bed but a couple of Paracetamol's and a couple of litres of water kept me going and soon the house was full of Lou and Malc's friends and we started off the late afternoon pool and party session.
What a great bunch they are too .. we had a great time. The boys took care of the cooking (bbq's are a mans job after all) ... the kids spent hours jumping in and out of the pool and we all tucked in to some fab food. I tried kanagroo steak ... which I must admit I was a bit wary ... but it is ten times more tender and tasted far nicer than the best steak I have ever had.
We rounded the night off with another viewing of Comet McNaught which was shining incredibly brightly, it's tail clearly visible .... then headed off to bed ready for our early start the next morning ... Rottnest Island .. here we come!!
