Day 45 - Tuesday 19 June 2012

Perth

Good news this morning - Prime Insurance Assessors rang at about 9:15 am to say that our quote had been approved and the repairers were able to start the job. David immediately took the Navara to Perth Autobody Repairs and was assured that as the parts were available locally we would have the vehicle back to us by Friday.

After cabbing back to the caravan park and having an early lunch we decided to try out Perth's public transport system. The nearest bus stop was on the highway about 200 metres from the caravan park, and the bus took us into the Esplanade Bus Station in the city - trip time about 30 minutes. First port of call was the Information Centre for a map of the city - then it was off to explore the shops. Perth was having a succession of heavy showers so the shopping Malls kept us out of the rain. David had a hair cut and Di checked out the clothes and shoe shops. After a few hours of wandering around the Perth shopping Malls, we decided that we are a bit over large cities.

Between showers we explored London Court, an English style shopping arcade built in 1937. For the history buffs the 60th anniversary of London Court's construction in 1997 coincided with the 600th anniversay of Dick Whittington's election as the Lord Mayor of London in 1397.

After deciding that we were not up to walking back to the Bus Station we cabbed back to the Caravan Park.
