Peter's 40th







It was great having Peter over for his 40th birthday for a day and a half.

The day started with a sleep in and morning tea with Omi and after that we met up with the Killows in Kings Park where we had lunch.


And we cut the birthday cake and enjoyed a generous piece with a cup of coffee.

We needed another photo just for the record.

Well a couple of photos that is at Kings Park.

We returned home to enjoy 'bruine bonen met spek' for those in the know.

Showing Visitors around Perth







We had Ernie and Ruby Addicote from London staying with us for a few days so lots of photos were made here are some of them. Canning Dam and a picnic spot.

Going out requires a lot of eating so we also had fish and chips and salads in Fremantle.

Kings Park is a must for visitors so we had coffee there (Omi couldn't sleep well that night, not used to coffee at night) we felt like film stars having our picture taken where ever we went.

New Life at 45 Forrest Road




The birds must like the enviroment in the back yard of 45 Forrest Road. The Doves have produced their second batch of two young in our stag horn. The New Holland Honey eaters have also produced two young in a bush along side the fence.

Just a little picture of our Geraldton wax as well.

Love Mum and Dad/Opa and Oma.

Alister




Mum Omi and I visited Kallaroo to wish Alister a happy 9th birthday.

Oma was happy to look at Alister's present which I am happy to say was not 'boring.'


Oma also helped Hannah with a knitting project while Omi looked on.

More travelling New Norsia and Gravity Discovery Centre




Mum Omi and I went for more sight seeing and went to New Norsia and visited the chapel and museum and viewed a few other buildings. Morning tea in Bindoon, lunch in Gin Gin and afternoon tea at the Gravity discovery Centre and there are a couple of photos to prove I went to the top of the leaning tower.

It is interesting at the Gravity Centre (which was very good) when the scientists have no answers they are happy to refer to the unknown as "The Hand of God'.

Visiting the Dams



We went visiting Wungong Dam to check the water level and it looks good. A week later we went for a picnic with Hannah and Alister to Churchman's Brook dam and the water is ready to overflow with the next shower.

On the way home




On the way home we stopped at a couple of historic church buildings, one still in use the other going into disrepair.

The buildings may be decaying, but PTL He is building His Church, His people.

The Lily near Borden




We enjoyed a little taste of Holland near the Stirling Ranges. In the evenings we played scrabble.








The room we stayed in had the Dutch touch on the furniture and layout.

Bluff Knoll




The highest point in WA where at times we have snow on the mountain, for us it was just misty and a little rain.

More pictures from our travels down South



We also went on the tree top walk near Walpole amongst the giant 'Tingle Trees.'

40 meters up in the canopy amongst the birds

Spending four days down South




Hi Everyone

Mum Omi and I took four days off to travel down the South West of WA.

We travelled from Bunbury to Busselton the next day on to Pemberton to see the giant Karri trees and on to Walpole then to Albany where we visted Sylvia Allen former ECM missionary to Spain.

Then on to Borden where we stayed at 'the Lily' where a real Dutch grain grinding wind mill was build and is in use.
