I don't recall any T-Rexes ... but visiting the Pinnacals was an "unearthly" experience (see photo below).
I too was fascinated by Perth from an early age. Fortuantely a college friend married a cardiologist who makes her home there. He took to it quickly -- given a love of sailing how could he not? -- and before long was encouraging those of us back in the States to visit. I'm not one to turn down that kind of opportunity.
As an introvert ... I am attracted by the remoteness. As one who loves to get away from it all ... and yet takes security in the conforts of modern civilization being near at hand ... this is THE place. And the out-of-doors side of me just can't get enough.
Then again ... there is a part of me that fears being too removed from the performing and fine arts centers of the world. As my visits have been rather brief (never more than a few weeks) that fear has been kept in check. On a long term basis ... that might not be the case ... then again is anyone ever truly removed with transportation what it is today?
