Well Perth did it again! What a fantastic day we all had!

Steve was very excited to be visiting Perth for the first time and we were both looking forward to catching up again....and especially when we had so much to talk about on our up and coming Europe trips. Unfortunately our timing will be a little out of wack and Steve will be doing Morocco just after Howie and I and Barcelona just after us as well. But we will get to meet up in Paris!....and we are both looking forward to that!

Anyway, we ended the day down at our famous vt venue, the Lucky Shag Pub on the waterfront in Perth :o)

Well we have had unrelenting hot days from 37 to 40C for the past month and today Perth chose to be a bit cooler with a bit of cloud so that was nice :o)

We started off our day on a tram up to Kings Park for a wander around the bush and awesome views overlooking Perth.

Our little bushwalk took us over the skybridge with views over the Swan River one way and looking into the bush and babbling stream the other way.

After a wander around we spotted the old Perth Swan Brewery and realised we were quite thirsty ;o)

Time to head on down to the pub for a coldie.

We also had food on our mind! ;o)

And as vt'ers do....out comes the camera.... lol.

The food at the Shag just seems to get better every time we visit!

Our regulars Sandra (nezz) and new regular Jadely (jlow20) were there to meet us.......unfortunately buffybird (Heather) couldn't make it this time.

And as is usual for us, a wonder afternoon ensued with plenty of travel talk, drinking and laughing.

Of course out comes the vt flag for an obligatory shot ..... and there has to be someone that has shut eye syndrome.... .

Most of us have experienced strange looks from people when we do our vt stuff and that just creates an opportunity to explain a bit about vt...

......and of course involve the person in perhaps their very first vt meet!!.... hehee.

Can't help ourselves can we :o)

Well another wonderful day!!

And one more shot....... Bye Bye, hooroo, ciao

See you in PARIS Steve!!! :o)

      December hey ;o) Cool! I hope we can roll out the red carpet treatment for both of you :o) It's been quite a while since we have got the vt crew together to celebrate a regular vt member to Perth.
      Please don't forget to let me know 2/3 weeks before you arrive Chinggis and I will most certainly arrange a vt meet for you both. Maybe a nice Chrissy meet including a day or afternoon winery trip with Captain Cook.
      They are the best! :o)
      And of course ending up at the Shag to end our meet.
