Last few days in Perth

Our time in Perth flew past and our last few days were no exception.  We managed to squeeze in a trip to mini-golf, feeding the parrots at the park, a day at the outdoor pool, another trip into the city, a morning walking in Kings Park and lots more time on the beach, a sunset picnic and another fishing trip out on the boat.  Our last couple of days were touched by sadness as Robert's brother John passed away very suddenly which was a great shock for Nancy and Robert.  

We were lucky with the weather while we were in Perth, we had only a couple of days of rain and we spent most of our three weeks in shorts and t-shirts.  The first of June is the official start of winter...we spent the day in 26 degree heat on the beach at Scarborough watching the surfers...not quite the same as winter in the UK then!!

Perth has been one of the highlights of our trip, especially for the boys who loved spending time with Nancy and Robert....since we left we have had to explain quite a few times that we are NOT meeting Nancy and Robert in South Africa...and Joseph informed us that he has two sets of Grandparents in Scotland and a Grandma and Grandpa in Australia!

Some more photos here and here.
