Dad visiting his brother Doug

Hi All,

We arrived at brother Dougs in Southlake, just south of Perth, on Saturday at about 1200.The run from Manjimup to here was good, we did not do any sight seeing as we have travelled
this way before, in 2003 and again in 2006. Doug, Viv and the two kids are well, although Doug is still a pain in the arse at times.

Did not do much on Sat arvo or Sunday morning. We just wanted to have a rest day, although on
Sat arvo Doug dragged me off to visit one of his friends for a couple of hours. It was OK in the end.

On Monday Doug left for work at 0500 and Viv left for work at about 0900. After breakfast Mum and I packed up the MH and went for a drive to Freemantle for some sight seeing.
Then drove back to a large shopping centre, so Mum could get a hair cut and do some shopping.
It is that hot here, must be in the 40s again. Too hot for any outside activity, so we are inside the MHwith the A/C going flat out.

Tomorrow, Tuesday, I have the M/H booked in at 0700 to have a regular service before heading home again. We will have breakfast at McDonalds after the M/H is finished, then
head off. Not sure which way we will have to go, as we had planned to travelled via Kalgoorlie.

However due to the bushfires in that a that area the road is still closed, at least for the next 24 hours. If the road is not open, We will have to go via Esperance again.

All for now.

Dad / Den
