No, The SHIN-kickers.
We've been to see them three times now, in just over a week, at Woody's and at Vic park.
Gerry Quigley is without a doubt the most talented guitarist I've seen/heard in many's a year.
check out "Weeping Willow" on their "MySpace"
Page, XL-ent stuff!!

This is the third time we've been to "Subiaco" stadium, the third time we've been to any stadium.
managed to blag six tickets off the net, and it was a complete sell-out!
Good game, the Wallabies did very well but if you're a fan of rugby you're better off staying at home and watching the action on TV, coz it's virtually impossible to follow from the stands, the details at least.
Again, well impressed how they manage to disperse 42,000 fans with no fuss at all at the end, hardly any queueing either.

Seagulls that have absolutely no fear of man and will steal your wedges-with-sourcream if you turn your back on them for a second.
Nick was daft enough to go swimming in the Ocean, actually the water temperature was higher than the air temp.
(about 20 degrees C)

Right out in WA's Wheat-Belt is Hyden, pop.400, and this geological masterpiece.
It's a bit of a way off the beaten track and there's not much else to do in Hyden but quite spectacular to get up close to the rock.
And there was nobody else there!

Australia's last functioning whaling station ceased operations in 1978
(about the time I was active demonstrating against whaling).
The Cheynes business was turned into a historic centre of information on how it all worked. Quite a disturbing place in many ways but fantastic that it wasn't lost, left to rust or turned into luxury apartments.

Down a red dirt track, through the brush, over a hill and there's the most southerly point of land in WA, a way outside Albany.
Next stop Antarctica.

Down in the South Western corner of WA is a region where massive Red Tingle
trees grow to huge heights.
There is a series of high-level gantries there forming a tree-top walk, but it was closed due to storm damage a few days before.
Amazing place from ground level though too.

When there are no whales off the starboard-bow there's still plenty to do and see on the trip.
There were only about ten or fifteen of us on board, the weather was atrocious, I got soaked to the skin but it was just fantastic to have been there.
