Perth, late November

30 11 2013

We had to go to Perth a week or so ago to do some legal business. We parked on the edge of the city and caught the free buses into and out of the CBD (all TransPerth buses as well as the CAT buses are free within in the main city blocks — a brilliant strategy introduced by the State Government many years ago).

The bus we caught into the CBD was all decked out in Christmas paraphernalia, which brought a smile to everyone’s faces. The female bus driver had gone to a lot of trouble to decorate her bus. And she was really good with the passengers too, calling out to ‘The lady from the airport, your stop is the next one.’ to a tourist who had just arrived in our city. What a great introduction to Perth for that person.

Once we were in the city and had breakfast, we waited in the gardens at the Central Park building for our appointment time. It was a gorgeous day and the all the trees in Central Park were well laden with leaves and a surprising number of birds. Here’s the view from the park bench we sat on, with the soaring Central Park building dominating the sky.

Thanks Dawn. Interestingly, no zoom was used. That was the angle I saw and snapped with my phone’s camera in just a second.

I can’t believe that was a phone camera. Your blog is interesting. How is the development near your home going on?
