So far, we’ve sat in departures at Manchester Airport for a couple of hours, had a quick flight to Heathrow, transferred between terminals (the airport really is huge) and… sat in the departure lounge for a few hours. 😕
Next flight is to Hong Kong and then on to Perth, arriving late Thursday evening local time.
And then the adventures can start!
It’s been a quiet day today. We got up late because of catching up on jet lag. We had a lazy brunch at an eclectic cafe, followed by a mooch down to the beach. Although the temperature was up to around 36C today, it didn’t feel too bad as there was a good sea breeze.
We returned to the hotel for a while before heading back to the beach to paddle in the Indian Ocean, walk along the sand and watch the sunset.
Lunch and cafe, plus sunset while watching kite surfers.
Spent a lovely day with a couple of friends, Kya and Bron, who I haven’t seen for years since they moved back from the UK to Australia.
We started off with a wander on Cottesloe beach before heading into Fremantle, Perth’s historic port. The afternoon consisted of exploring the city, including the Roundhouse and the markets, along with a long lazy lunch overlooking the sea.
We’re took another stroll in a beach, Leighton Beach in North Fremantle on the way back.
Lovely to catch up with friends as well as explore an older post of the Perth region.
