Western Australia - Part 1

                  

Melvyn with flag-towel
This is good old friend Melvyn Tuckey, with whom I went to high school in Pinjarra 1965-66. Faithful as he is to his heritage, Melvyn still lives in Mandurah, which is the rapidly expanding summer resort (or nowadays more like a city) perched on the West Australian sore line about five km to the west of Pinjarra and something like ten times that distance from Perth, nowadays with a commuter train conveniently binding the two municipals together

A mere shadow of  myself, this shot was taken in Madora bay, just  north of Mandurah, only three weeks after having broken my foot in an ac- cident at a hotel in Bangkok
