Day 86. Perth

A picnic in the park

This morning, Bec and I started tackling the van in earnest; getting it ready for the next leg of our journey. We went through every nook and cranny (i.e: cupboards and drawers) and ended up with about 3 x boxes full of excess gear that we found we just don't use or need. Our good friend Marty is helping us by sending this gear back to Brisbane through work channels; which is such a relief! Thanks mate.

We then headed into Perth and relaxed in a park situated on the southern bank of the Swan River. Here we enjoyed great picnic lunch. The day was terrific (weather wise), and the company outstanding. Robyn introduced us to a few of her girlfriends; who also joined us for the day. The girls 'chatted' for ages. Best thing of all was that the kids loved it here as the playground was huge! Then, before we knew it, it was late afternoon and time to head back to Waikiki.

On the way back, Marty introduced us to 'the spud shed'; a discount grocery wholesaler. Bec was in heaven and has vowed to return before we leave Perth to stock up the van before heading north.

Afterwards, Bec and I continued sorting out the van and Pajero while the kids helped Robyn prepare dinner... Another fabulous dinner (Roast this time),was enjoyed outside under the patio.

It was a simple day - with not to much happening for a change.
