What a fantastic day we had recently on 8 May 2010 when William and Linda came to visit us from Scotland.
We started the day off in Perth at the lovely Merchant Cafe.....then Hubby & I, my best friend Paula (who is now a regular +1 at our little Perth meets :o) - and William and Linda caught the train to Fremantle. Wandered around the markets - Linda loves her shopping :o) ....and then headed on down to our famous Perth micro brewery, Little Creatures.
Well what a lovely couple! :o) Linda was a bit dubious about meeting people off then net....but then we've all been there before haven't we ;o) Didn't take William and Linda long to open up and enjoy themselves.
William is the best story teller!! .....and boy has he got some stories to relate! .....kept us entertained all afternoon!! :o) .....and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves :o)
Well of course I had to do the obligatory jumping shot for Norman. I believe it's the first one for Perth :o) ....excuse the exposed flab haha. ....And thanks William for taking the pic mate :o)
I think next time I'll try without the vt flag lol.
The sign in the background is the Little Creatures icon - "Open up a Little" means to open a bottle of Little Creatures beer - or as us Aussies say - crack a stubbie :o)
A lovely way to return to Perth is via the Captain Cook ferry. On the way we passed Fishermans Wharf in downtown Fremantle.
Statues have become quite common in and around Perth now and I noticed this new one of a fisherman down on the Wharf. Cute hey :o)
So after some free wine tasting on the Captain Cook ferry, we were all primed for more pix .....the vt flag was well used on the day :o)
And of course Captain Cook had to have a photo with us vt'ers ;o)
Then it was off to the Lucky Shag pub on the water front to finish off the day.
Thank you so much William and Linda for joining us. We had a wonderful day out! ....and we look forward to catching up with you in your hometown in Scotland next year!! :o)
