Starting at the end

Sorting all the Africa photos seems mind blowing so I am starting with my days in Perth visiting kathy (Tony's daughter) Simon and their 4 kids.
Actually they live in Collie 2.5 hrs south of Perth near Bunbury. It is a small town (where Simon was born and grew up) serving the local coal mines and aluminium processing so a fairly bustling town esp with casual workers adding to the mix.
The children in age are Treyden (nearly 13)  Hudson 11, Miami 8 and Hunter 6.
Treyden & Hudson
As with teen agers and near teenagers did not get a lot of interaction with them also seeing as they were playing computer games all day!
Miami is a girly girl amidst all those boys and can be a tough cookie, Great fun!!
Miami & Hunter
Hunter is the opposite of the two older boys, a dynamo whose most frequent remark is 'I'm bored!" I don't think he stopped moving and or talking.
 Hunter, Kathy & Simon
We went for a drive to the Wellington Dam constructed in 1931 and was a major source of area water supply until land clearing raised salinity and made it unsuitable. Simon says it is a great area for camping and walking with lots of gorges and tracks. He has been camping in lots of great spots.
