My 'holiday' began in Perth, in Western Australia. I met up with the Tasmanian twins, Di WIlliams and Liz Dombrovskis, my frequent Australian traveling companions. Their aunt (and Di's godmother) was Diana Cullen, the first woman winemaker in Australia, and found of Cullen Wines in Margaret River. Diana's children live in both Perth and Margaret River, and made us feel most welcome in their homes.

In Cottesloe, a Perth suburb, we stayed in a (Cullen) home overlooking the Indian Ocean. On the day I arrived, a man was taken by a great white shark in the ocean just below us. You can be absolutely certain that my 'bathers' were never unpacked.
