Day 82. Perth

Heading south again...

As today was our last day with Geoff and Lachlan, Bec thought it would be nice to for us to cook them up a nice hot breakfast; so she showed me where the kitchen was and left me to it! What the??? I ended throwing together fried eggs, bacon, hash browns and toasted rolls/toast. We soon devoured the lot, and I then quickly left and proceeded outside to pack the car ready for our move down to Robyn's place.

In the distance I soon heard Bec and Geoff cursing me when they found out the state I had left the kitchen in. It may of been a small victory for me (as I was left to my own devices in the kitchen), but I savoured the moment and enjoyed the sweetness of having others clean up after me!

After the Pajero was fully packed, we headed off to the Caversham Wildlife Park which is located at the beginning of the Swan Valley just on the outskirts of Perth. We had heard great feedback about this place, and if the car park was anything to go by, we were in for a good day.

We arrived just in time to meet a few of the local wildlife critters at the 'Meet the Wombat' show, and I was impressed from the very beginning as they had a Sooty Owl who we were allowed to get up close and personal with. Scarlett and I had to get a photo with him!

This place is great for the kids; as there is heaps of hands on things to do. we really enjoyed the day, even though the temp was just over 35deg. After looking around for a bit, we all enjoyed a well earned ice cream before heading over to the 'Farm Show' where we watched the dogs 'muster' the sheep, shearing demonstrations, cow milking (which both Lachlan and Scarlett had a go at), and whip-cracking; where Bec was in her glory as she was picked from the crowd to give it a go.

Before we knew it, it was time to go. We said some very sad goodbyes to Geoff and Lachlan as they have been the most amazing hosts. Thanks guys for a great time and helping us explore the wonders of Perth; we had a great time.

We then headed south to Waikiki to stay with Robyn and her family for the next week (before heading north from Perth and continuing our journey around Australia). When we arrived, Marty and Robyn piled us all into their own Pajero and whisked us down to Mandurah for Fish 'n Chips in the park by the marina for a beautiful sunset dinner. (Well it is Good Friday after all, and Fish is the order of the day).

What a great way to finish the day!
