Greetings from Perth!
After a spell at Margaret River, our three families drove back to Perth itself. From wide open spaces to a cityscape. The weather is warmer here than down south but it's still pleasant because it's not humid like Singapore.
Down south of Perth, where we spent four days, we visited the Ngilgi Caves, Busselton Jetty (longest jetty in the Southern Hemisphere and where an Iron Man would be held end this week) and some sheep shearing and animal petting farms.
I would also like to add that I think Australian coffee tastes very good. No wonder Starbucks died a tragic death here. Why would you drink inferior American coffee if you have Aussie coffee?
Pro travel tip: Never let the wives enter a supermarket. They won't come out until they've bought everything.
That said, I am pleased the wife was wise enough to buy bread and scones yesterday when we drove past Bunbury or we wouldn't have any breakfast this morning.
The balcony where we are staying is huge and overlooks the city. So we have decided to do what we did in Yallingup and have breakfast outside. Very lifestyle hor?
We haven't decided where we are heading next, probably Fremantle. So far, we've done the play-it-by-ear style of travel and it's working out nicely. Sometimes it's nice just to drive around and discover stuff, like the sheep shearing farm we found near our Yallingup place. And the countless wineries we stumbled on.
You can take a rock and throw it in the Margaret River region and hit two or more wineries.
Not that we're complaining, of course. Mmmm, wineries.
