I took a trip out to Rottnest Island a couple of days ago. The beaches look tropical, but the center of the island is a mix of scrub land and unusual salty lakes. It’s pretty cool.
Here’s another shot…
The island was named Rottnest (Rat’s Nest) because William de Vlaming thought the native Quokkas were big (cat sized) rats. Here’s one of the little fellas.
They are really tame. They walk right up to you without a care.
After taking a bike ride round the island I spent some time on the beach. Sorry to anyone present who was subjected to my incredibly white body. 🙂
