On the 9th March, being a public holiday, we decided to take a drive northwards to explore the region. Aboout half an hours drive north of Joondalup lies the Yanchep National Park. We were very pleasantly surprised - it has a large dam, rolling lawns and leafy trees to laze under. There are a number of things to do, like the aboriginal tour, the koala walkway, have tea at the Chocolate Drops tearoom, lunch at the Yanchep Inn or hiking and caving for the more energetic. The birdlife is awesome!
- 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'.
