Friday 22 February
It's that day...Glenys and Pat arrive in Perth
Giddy Kippers all round
At the house Laurie distracts the girls by showing them the Lori Keets (parrots) in the tree
...the reason for the distraction...Doug Wendy and David arrive to welcome them
after 30 or so hours travelling they were surprisingly awake
Pat shows Doug her new grandson Ben
David was very pleased with the water bottle for Dino's car!
He was even more pleased with the car and caravan magazines

Not sure whether the wine helped the process
It took longer than we expected and when the temperature dropped to 27c Glenys got cold
...it's a long story but...
Laurie & Kairen go to Center Parcs
Our 'good friends' (we thought!) , Paul, John, Melonie Adam, Ben and Anne (who took the picture) went to Center Parcs this week-end without us whilst we were away.
To avoid total and complete disappointment we went along for a virtual visit!
