i am going to perth at christmas time to housesit for my friend who will be away in bali, kl, cambodia and a few other places that i can't remember. laos maybe. i have only been to the perth airports and don't know my way around. my friend Carol is coming too. we will be about an hour from perth near rockingham. Sue doesn't have animals to look after and two of her neighbours are close friends and know where things are, both in the house and in the area. we are excited and plan to go to lots of places both in the city and surrounds. Sue is near the beach and from what i've seen it looks like a lovely part of the country. the house is not far from penguin island so that sounds like a nice day out.
