.....so we finally made it to my (nik) dads house and after admiring the big telly collapsed on the sofa for some much needed rest! after a few hours kippage and some pretty random oz telly we were ready to start our first day exploring around perth! the first objective being to find some hair gel whilst poor sammy was dragged around the shops because everywhere was sooo expensive! so after finding a place called woolworths liquer, which of course we had to investigate :P ,it turned out to be a supermarket so we had sucess finally! hehe after many hours of walking around or what seemed like many hours of walking around and a trip to the bank we then decided to spontaneously jump on a train to cottesloe on the coast.. after a short journey on the train it was then a short walk to the beach, although when walking there there was a worrying amount of people walking away from the beach and an even more worrying huuuuge black cloud growing behind us... so erm.. yep it started pissing it down! but in true english style we didnt let that put us off and carried on to the beach and ended up taking cover in a fish and chip shop. After checking out the beach it was then time to head back to perth and after a pretty energetic day of exploring once again collapse on the sofas back at the house! by which time we realised maybe we hadn't quite got over the jet lag yet!
On wednesday we decided to have a more relaxed day and spent the morning sun bathing by the pool until my (niks) dad turned up. After a bit of a reunion we then jumped into the car and went on a trip to kings park overlooking perth. At which point sammy suggested hyde park should be made like it and i pointed out there weren't wild parrots in england hehe we then jumped back into the car and headed over to fremantle on the coast where we had our 2nd ice cream of the day! although i had to finish sammys cos she couldnt eat all of hers.. so we then decided to skip dinner as the thought of more food made us go green. So then back into the car and we headed further up the coast to city beach which was huuuge and very sandy! hehe
After another fun filled day of exploring we then headed back for some much needed rest ready for another day hehe
