I've signed out at work and tomorrow we pack. I'd been very excited to leave except our kitty Mina is sick. We realized that she had stopped eating two weeks ago. It turns out that she has Chronic Renal Failure (CRF) and needs daily care. She's somewhat stabilized but is still not eating a lot. Fortunately, the assistants at our Vet will do home care so we have a assistant who will come by daily and give her fluids and check on her. That is such a relif. There is still a possibility that something terrible will happen while we are gone but we know that she is in the best hands.
We are off on Saturday. We are flying via Honolulu and Sunday night we will be in Sydney. We are going to stay the night at the airport and then on to Perth.
Then it is 4 days in Perth to visit the area and see Freemantle and other sights in the area. We'll also get a chance to see the King Park Wildflower show. Then we pick up our car for the Western Australia Road trip. Up the coast; Jurien Bay and Kalbarri. We will hopefully see some flowers around Eneabba. Then we'll head back south. Originally we were going to go through Dalwallinu but since it has been so dry, we are going to leave that night open so we can adjust our itinerary based upon where the flowers are. I suspect we may go through Moorea. Then on to Naggorin and on to 3 nights in Albany. Next is Margaret River and then on to Sydney.
We hope to blog as we go along so check back.
