Day 79 Perth
Our first full day in Perth staying at Jennifer and David's. Feel so much better for a really good night's sleep and ready to face the day. Jennifer has offered to drive us around today and show us a bit of the place so that we can make a more informed decision as to what we want to do with the rest of our time here. We set off after breakfast and stopped first at Whiteman Park to see the railway that David had helped to build as a volunteer. Next came Hilary's where we had a look round the beach and marina and stopped on the water's edge for an early lunch. Cottesloe was next, another lovely beach on the Indian Ocean, where we watched some lifeguards training. Last stop was into Freemantle, we didn't stop this time as we couldn't easily find parking and Jennifer needed to get back for the children coming home from school. I suggested going back into the city to see if we could find a camera repair shop so we hopped on the bus which stops very close to the house and within 20 mins we were in Perth CBD or central business district. I now have the name of a firm who can do warranty work for Olympus so maybe we might get a result on the camera. Fingers crossed; meanwhile I am using Jennifer's so at least we will have some record of our time here.
