Sunday (17th February) we travelled with Garry and Sue the 40 miles south from Perth to Mandurah (from Aboriginal word meaning meeting/trading place) on the Kwinana Freeway
There are lots of sculptures along the Freeways and Highways, some impressive like this one and some not so!
Over the Swan River which meanders through Western Australia
Here we are at Mandurah wandering in and out of shops, cafes, promenades and beaches ...
Me and my brother Garry
George, me, sister in law Sue and my brother Garry
We met Garry's daughter in law's brother Paul and his partner Jackie who are lucky enough to live in Mandurah
No white swans here!
The Galah, or Pink and Grey are the most common of the cockatoos in Oz
Paul and Jackie in their beautiful home just a stones throw from the wonderful beaches above
In Paul and Jackie's small but delightful tropical garden
Before we left Mandurah when it was dark enough for the Kangaroos to come out of the bush we went on the hunt for them. Sue and Garry assured us that we would see at least a group of them here ... we walked and walked along the edge of Mandurah's bush land but couldn't see anything even with a torch ... until this ... hold your breath ...
Can you make him out? Our first kangaroo!
Another fantastic day in Oz and making new friends.
