Early start successfull, and I'm eating brekkie by the pool at 7am. What's more I make calls to the UK where its 10pm Sunday night and I'm strangely coherent!

Soon its time to walk down to Barrack Square jetty to catch the pre-booked ferry down the Swan River to Fremantle and then across 18km of sea to Rottnest. 

The island is bliss, sandy dunes, 63 coves, no cars and inland lagoons. What a Scottish island would be like if it had a decent climate. I walk in the hot sun and cover just a fraction of the 10km island. Then I settle at the scalloped cove called Geordie Bay. Its warm and like a millpond, there are yatchts moored nearby. You get the picture. Afterwards I walk back to the port on the cycle path. EVERYONE, residents and guests in the rental cottages here cycles. It is an amazing place. On the return ferry it rains - for 15 minutes.
