Well Dave and I have just got back from a great weekend in Perth. We heard from some good friends of ours - (Jack and Si, that we had met in Darwin )- that they had just got to Perth and were flying out to start work in the Pilbara next week.
We hadn't seen them for about 16months so we made a split decision to go to Perth for the weekend.
We didn't tell them we were coming :) We left at 4.30 on Friday afternoon and arrived at the Discovery Holiday Park in Hale Rd Perth at about 11pm - very tired! So we walked around the park to find their Caravan so we knew where to go the next morning then it was off to bed.
After we woke and had showers we wandered off to surprise them :) They were sitting outside having breakfast - yes they were very surprised!!!!!!!!!! After the initial shock we all sat down for a cuppa and a chat.
We decided that we would meet up a bit later for lunch and then off to the Great Northern Distillery in the swan valley.
We walked from the C/Park to the Hale Rd Tavern for a beautiful lunch of Barramundi and a few Bundy's. Then we caught a Taxi to the Distillery which makes Canefire Rum.
As it is not a hotel, they give you a card when you arrive to say that you are entitled to 3 drinks at $3ea which also includes a variety of cocktails. We all had our 3 drinks - very nice indeed!
|Great Day Out with good friends!|
Sunday was alot slower paced! Just a few drinks and a BBQ Dinner.
|Dave taking it easy|
Cheers and Happy Travels,
