16/1 Monday day 19
This morning we rode with Suzie to Mandurah where we had breakfast at the marina. We walked around the shops and explored the waterfront area.

We cruised around looking at the big mansions on the Canals. Nearly all of them had moorings out the front.

We rode around to where we could look out on the Indian Ocean. Suzie has been wonderful showing us many of the places around this area.

After we had farewelled Suzie for now, we rode to South Fremantle choosing the closest roads to the coast. We rode out to the end of one of the piers to see all the boats. There are so many, and in several places they were stored stacked in multi level storage systems. We had planned to ride through and explore South Fremantle but we spotted the Little Creatures Brewery which we'd been told to visit and that was it. We were there for the rest of the afternoon! We sampled a tasting tray of their beers and cider then had pizza (a rather late lunch) with our favourites. We finally left to make our way to Teena's place where we are staying for the next few days.
It was slow traffic for a while on the freeway, but we did have some great views of the city and the rivers. The train stations are situated in the centre of the freeway. Each one has a different design and they are quite interesting.
Today's distance: 142km
