rottness island, snorkelling and quokkas

I'm having the most wonderful, relaxing time here. Yesterday Hannah and I got on a 30 minute ferry from Perth to the near by Rottness Island - a totally unspoiled island, which doesn't allow cars and homes beautiful white sandy beaches. The island is also the only place in the world where quokkas live. Quokkas are a mix between a kangaroo and a rat bizarrely! About the size of a cat, the hop along like a kangaroo and are really friendly. Too cute. We rented bikes and snorkelling equipment, was the perfect day.
