We’ve been in Perth for 3 days now and have been really enjoying the laid back living, strongly child friendly atitude and fab beaches and sea scapes. The town itself is low key and mostly low rise. There’s about 1.5 million people here – although the same size as Dublin it doesn’t have the same buzz, its much quieter. We’ve visited the cute town of Freemantle and got a kick out of the local markets and had lunch in a microbrewrey – yum! We’ve also checked out Swan Valley, which is a big wine producing area – we stopped off at a winery and had a look around.
We had a gorgeous breakfast at Cottesloe Beach, watching the surfers while the guys ended up in the Indian ocean in their clothes 🙂
We had a wonderful dinner and evening in friends’ house, a real injection of news and good fun – spending some time with other people was really welcome after 4 weeks of just us mostly!!!
just found your blog , sounds great, pity you didnt get to brisbane, though sorcha came home for summer and is wearing woolly sweaters to keep warm we loved france especially the food and sun.
hey guys, u’ve just left on the next leg of your big trip – it was great to catch up with you in sunny and not so sunny Perth….. Tiarnan misses Cora and Adam big time and we were all sad to see you leave. Catch you in Atha Claith next time we’re in D8 – enjoy the journey don’t get too caught up in the rat race when you get home…just think of the Stuarts having pancakes at Cottesloe 🙂
