Thanks for popping in.
We're in Perth, taking it all in, wearing suncream and a hat, white knees on show.
Hard to believe that despite the Indigenous Australians arriving 40,000 to 60,000 years ago, the Europeans only came in 1827 when Captain James Stirling of the Royal Navy sailed down the Swan River. Less than 200 years to build the vibrant City we see before us.
The River dominates, there are plenty of green spaces and lakes all with the beach not far away.
|Walking next to Swan River heading for Elizabeth Quay|
|Plenty of paths and cycle tracks, exercise and sports encouraged|
|Elizabeth Quay Bridge|
|The Bell Tower contains 12 bells from St. Martin in the Fields, London|
|Where two rivers meet - Swan and Canning. The view from Kings Park|
|The City at night|
|Cottesloe Beach, so much white sand everywhere you look which just goes on for miles and miles and miles.|
|City Beach - look at the turquoise Indian Ocean!|

Great place isn't it.
See you soon.
