Bicycle Built for Two

We took a ferry from Fremantle to Rottnest Island.  It is a popular holiday destination.  It was named "Rattenest", meaning rat's nest in the Dutch language, by a Dutch ship captain because he thought the quokkas, a marsupial found on the island, looked like large rats.

We rented a tandem bike to ride around the island.  We rode about 10K before stopping for lunch.

The island has lots of beautiful beaches and it was a fun day trip, but we weren't overly impressed.  The ferry over and food on the island was quite expensive.
