Day 20: Tuesday 17th January

Perth

sunny 36 °C

This morning we visited Hilarys on the coast north of Perth. We had breakfast at Chocolateria san Churros.

We sat there overlooking the enclosed beach area, where lots of children were having swimming lessons. We walked around the quay looking at some of the shops, then checked out an African restaurant called Hippo Creek… (thinking of lunch already) but it was very expensive. We did note their 2kg rump challenge (at $100!!) where if anyone could finish it alone they got it at half price and their photo on the Facebook page!

We visited AQWA - the Aquarium of Western Australia where we saw a great display of sea creatures.

There were also a couple of curious creatures poking their heads out of the water!

We watched huge crayfish fighting amongst themselves for food and saw so many colourful and interesting fish.

Later we rode the coast road down through Scarborough then stopped for lunch in Cottesloe. We had a great view of the ocean from the pub window.

We rode on to Fremantle planning to go to the information centre there. We had some trouble getting to it. We could see it, but the right turn kept eluding us until, in frustration, I gave up on the navigator and rode across the mall and parked right outside it!

We booked a couple of things for next few days, then went down to waterfront and had a ride on the ferris wheel there. It provided great views of the marina.

We wandered around the pier area, sat and had a glass of wine (or so) then went back to Little Creatures for a light dinner. We rode back to Teena's in the dark (with clear visors this time!)
