Have just checked out of The Witch's Hat, my hostel in Perth, and will soon be on my way to Fremantle. Of course, now I have doubts and wonder if perhaps I should have stayed in Cottesloe Beach instead (if it's nighttime in Cottesloe, you can check this out instead).

I'm still feeling pretty sick, although it could be the medication I'm taking. My glands are still swollen, and maybe I just need to hang out on the beach for a couple of days. Which is actually the plan.

I'm taking off north on Monday, heading to Shark Bay (another World Heritage Area) and then Exmouth (near the Ningaloo Reef). North=hot. I mean, hottER. Yikes. I'd originally planned to go to Broome, which is further north and supposed to have beautiful beaches, but I looked at the forecast and they are covered in thunderstorms at the moment (for the next week at least), so I decided that it wasn't worth it.

A little trivia:
Did you know that WA has a population of 1,851,252 and that most of those people live in Perth (1,176,542 people as of 2001)? That's mostly because much of the state is desert. But probably they are also just here to see me. They knew I was coming...
