Day 46 - Wednesday 20 June 2012

Perth

As the weather in Perth is still showery and cool we decided to give public transport another test, and catch the bus into the City then catch the train to Fremantle. The bus trip was about 30 minutes and the train trip was also 30 minutes. The walk from the Bus Station to the Train Station was mainly under cover so we managed to stay dry. The Perth Railway Station is a bit like the rest of Perth - a bit of a shambles - roads, footpaths, and train lines are being dug up everywhere and rebuilt, no doubt to cope with the 15% increase in population in the West.

Once in Fremantle we made a beeline for Cicerellos for a leisurely seafood lunch - we both had Seafood Trays with a glass of white wine - Yummy! The seafood tray had a piece of fish, 2 prawns, 6 squid rings, a crab stick, a battered pineapple ring and more chips than we could eat. The battered pineapple ring must be a West Australian thing as we have not had it before, and we could do without. After lunch we headed for the shops to stay out of the rain - Di managed to find a pair of shoes that she really needed.

The return trip to the caravan park was via the train and the bus - the bus trip taking 45 minutes because of peak hour traffic and heavy rain. Luckily it had stopped raining when we got off the bus and we made it back to the van without getting wet.

No photos today.
