Hi all,

Bilbo here - currently growing webfeet 'n duckbill in Carnarvon W.A.. Left Perth on 15/5/05, visited Port Denison, Geraldton, Coronation Beach, Tamala Station, Shark Bay and here. Fishing has been crap and I can't take too much more rain.

Heading for Onslow tommorrow - hopefully better fishing and more sunshine.

Sounds like Willem is having a ball.

Hope the weather fines up for you Bilbo,I thought it was only me that got rain when I go on holidays which is tomorrow, heading to Cairns and has been raining there for a couple of weeks now, shouldn't complain I know, but I get a little bit tired of being called the Framers friend.
Still gotta be better than work!!

Feel for you Bilbo, being on holidays and raining but... we need it!!!

We never get anywhere near the rain we need anymore!
I spent the long weekend in Kalbarri and it rained the whole time but I just cant knock the rain, its pure gold!!!

Hope the rest of your journey is still great!

Matt.

I guess the only benefit to being in perth is you can leave your washing on the line for a whole day without it being stained red.

You are right, we were over WA last year and at some locations it was a watse of time to change clothes cause you just got dirty again.

Anything is better than being at work though.

Bilbo,

If you want to get rid of the rain please or should I say PLEASE PLEASE send it to Broken Hill. We will take all you can spare and then some.

Had the heaviest rain of the year so far, today. I walked to work in the thick of it and got hit by 2 drops.
