Loch McNess











(and yes, that's the real name of the lake in Yanchep National Park that we visited today!)

We took our friend from Mexico to Yanchep National Park for a typical Aussie summer bbq today. And it was a complete success given we had 'snags' on the bbq (sausages), and saw koalas and kangaroos. All the reqs, right ;). We're now going to make potato and carrot soup and wind down for Monday.

I also have to apologise for neglecting the blog somewhat....I'm currently covering a team mate's work whilst he's on leave (which equals A LOT more work!), showing our friend from Mexico around Perth, and playing with my new Canon rebel XSi 450D (yay!). I promise to make it up to you with more blog posts.

I also have a huge favour to any of you know where I can find a pair of red Chloe doc ankle boots in size 36.5/37/38 (like in the following pic)? Anyone willing to sell theirs? I'll be forever indebted to you :D

I had to re-read the title. You look so relaxed and I adored your outdoor pics, aww bless.

You forget to take a picture of the "shrimp on the barbie" - sorry, snag... snag? really? - I hope your friend was "stoked" and that they took away some sweet memories, love, x.

Love these pictures with the koala! It reminds me of when I was in Australia. Koalas are so cool. You look very nice in that skirt. Don´t know about those shoes.
