rotto barbies

Goodness: breaking news on Perth Now about Rottnest. Someone has been bitten by a 'potentially lethal' snake.

'It is believed the victim was bitten about 3.45pm today and will be flown to Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital. More coming.'

We hope so. The accompanying pic is of a lizard - it's the best we can do.

The beautiful island has also been mentioned in high art. Alexander McCall Smith (whom Rotto Bloggo once interviewed at Cottesloe, within sight of Rotto) has this in Corduroy Mansions.

“We had great parties at uni,” said Jo. “We used to go over for weekends to Rottnest Island and have barbies. Someone would get out a guitar and we’d sing. Out there in the darkness, under all those stars.”

“A beautiful image,” said Caroline. “I can just see it.”

This is an online novel by McCall Smith, who writes like you and we breathe. We recently saw him quoted, or quoted as saying, 'there's no such thing as writer's block. People who can't write have nothing to say'.
