Judith continues to look after me and do all the driving - can't help feeling that I shall pay when I can walk and drive again! Most days we have been able to make good use of the coastal pathway which runs for 17km from Burns Beach where we are staying all the way down to Trigg. Thus far my maximum has been about 1.5km on crutches.
Our camper trailer has been sold so that part of the dream is no more but we are working on revised plans which should enable us to get to most of the places on our original list - one way or another!
The biggest regret is that instead of spending time with Dave & Pat travelling through the Red Centre, they will now do that on their own and it looks as if we shall meet them somewhere on the Nullarbor for a couple of days.
As I am gradually becoming more mobile, we are catching up with various friends but still many to see!
We have been staggered by the changes in Perth. We were aware that there had been huge growth but were not really prepared for the extent of the building boom of the years since we were last here. Some of it is wonderful but some is really sad to see, unattractive, blocking formerly lovely views and generally not very sympathetic.
Fortunately, where we are we are spoilt by the lovely views, great restaurant only a few steps away and some lovely sunsets and sea views.
I'm getting more comfortable in the vehicle, particularly having mastered getting and out, so we should be able to travel a bit further afield soon - perhaps after I see the physio on 10 August.
