Beautiful day wandering on the beach.
An early start this morning to watch the Queen Mary 2 come into port.
The time of her arrival was brought forward to 05.45 and we expected to be alone. There were thousands of people on the wharf to greet her! With just 100 feet to spare they turned the massive 1150 foot ship, around, 180 degrees in the port. …awesome!
Walking back at 7am we spotted the green gates to our nearest pub…The Norfolk.
I need some sleep……….
To give an idea of scale she is 147 feet longer than the Eiffel Tower and is only 117 feet shorter than the Empire State Building is tall
Spent today packing up our stuff in preparation to move on to Singapore at the week-end.
Pasta Addiction with the green umbrellas supplies many of the Freo restaurants with fresh pasta on a daily basis.
Louise’s operation went well and much relieved we eventually got to bed.
We flew out of Perth today and by chance our path took us over Fremantle. This isn’t a great photo but I took this picture from the aircraft window as we climbed over Freo.
The white tip of the Maritime Museum is clearly visible at the mouth of the harbour.
I’m struggling!….. seem to have picked up a flu-like bug (not the piggy version!) and had to take to my bed for the first time in perhaps 20 years.
This is an early morning photo taken of rain puddles on our patio. Rain is a novelty after 5 months without it!
The daffodils are looking nice in Whitwell Woods, but it is a very crisp and cold day!
