Jill will be enjoying Mother’s Day today on Rottnest Island
Mother’s Day dawns on Rotto
Today is Mother’s Day on Rottnest, so there’ll be a double helping of baked beans on toast for the breakfast of my darling wife Jill, the mother of our nine terrific children. Only one of them, our youngest daughter Kylie, is with us on the island, but I’m sure there’ll be plenty of communications with the other via iPhones throughout the day. Most of them read this blog, so I’ve assembled for them a selection of photos of their mother which have been taken since we arrived on Rottnest last Tuesday. The first is of her leaning into a 100km gale at Bathurst Lighthouse on day 1. The second image was taken at the east end of Longreach Bay on day 3. The bottom two images were taken yesterday. On the left she can be seen photographing an osprey. The pic of her on the lower right was taken with Salmon Bay in the background.
