TITLE: Perth in a Prado.
IN SHORT: Packing for the train; up to 2 checked in bags not over 20kgs each, so the first,17kgs and another, 5kgs plus a day pack… slight problem, I’d bought some presents and there was no chance they were being checked in to be (unintentionally) smashed. It looked like I might be wearing 2 days clothes and sacrificing the space for a good cause. Relatively organised I headed into the city with my cousin to see King’s Park and have lunch. That afternoon my other cousin, his wife and 7 month old son dropped by, I’m not short on family here in Perth! The 7 of us headed out for a lovely dinner overlooking the Swan River and a great last night in the West! Thank you for everything!
TIP: Beneath the trees that line the avenues throughout King’s Park are plaques to honour those who lost their lives in a war. I did a double take when I saw the year some of the service men died (1915 for example) when underneath it says ‘planted by his parents’. It sounds feasible until you see the tree is about a foot high and not a bonsai.
Occasionally, as in this case the trees have had to be replaced. They’re maintained in a voluntary capacity through the Honour Avenues Group.
