Al, Josh and I caught up with Dave and Karen Freemantle in Mandurah for the celebration of the annual crab festival. Stupidly, we never tried the crab, but had a lot of fun anyway. Mandurah is about 60km south of Perth city.It has some of the most expensive property in the country, with huge mansions on the extensive canals. We caught a train there and back, very relaxing! As a town, it has much character and charm! The Freemantles proved excellent guides!
- To go or not to go? That is the question that has plagued our family for years. Throwing all fears and caution aside, Ali and I did a rekkie of Perth and decided to make the break! The team was headed by a very enthusiastic Chris who squashed any doubt or indecision by threatening to go on his own if need be! It was by no means an easy decision as both Ali and I had to make heart-wrenching decisions to leave our most loved family members behind!Always hoping they will follow, though! So, on the 26th December 2008, our family flew to 'greener pastures'.
