It is Monday and our first day of seeing the sites around Perth. It is a lovely sunny day with temperatures predicted to rise. Our hosts collected us from our hotel and it was so nice to see Bert and Tammy again. Off we went on a drive along the coastline to see the wonderful blue sea and prestige sands of Scarboro. and Sorento and then bay after bay with surfers riding the waves. We stopped for coffee at a marina with huge numbers of boats of various sizes moored up. Here is where large rocks of limestone was used to create barriers and these were brought from a quarry many years previously by Bert and his father in law.
From here we travelled to Yancheng National Park, 5460 acres of natural bush and lakes. We walked some of the trails seeing kangaroos, koalas, which were difficult to see in the trees and a pair of kookaburras nesting in a tree. We walked through a woodland of paper bark trees and skirted around the lakes see the indigenous donkey orchid. The park is so large that you can take walking trails of one hour to three days!! We did a two hour trail stopping for refreshments at the Chocolate Drop tea rooms. We returned to Perth via Waneroo where Bert lived for some time tired but exhilarated by our adventures.
