Power returned after lunch and we went off the the Botanic Park at Araluen. There were plenty of tulips and other flowers in full bloom as it is now the beginning of Spring.
After the visit, she planned to drop us off at Burswood, near the casino. But she took a wrong turning and we ended up in the city and so we took the train instead to Burswood. Here Angeline, my wife's friend was waiting for us. She took us to Spencer Village where there is a food court with plenty of Asian stores and we had our dinner there. From here we when to Carousel Shopping mall for more shopping as it was Thursday, late night shopping in the suburbs.
There was no power cut today and we went off smoothly in the morning to the Swan Valley. The first stop was at the Margaret River Chocolate Factory for free chocolate tasting.
Next was honey tasting that was followed by some wine tasting at Lancaster winery.
We then had ice cream at the Oggies Ice Creamery. Next was a visit to an animal farm nearby and a strawberry farm. Unfortunately, strawberry was not yet in season. From here we went to the city.
We had lunch at Miss Maud Restaurant and this was a delicious and sumptuous smorgasbord lunch. The next item was a visit to AQWA, the Aquarium of Western Australia that was located in Hillarys Boat Harbour. This is touted to be Australia' largest aquarium and underwater tunnel. There were some outdoor displays but the rain and the strong wind made the visit a bit uncomfortable.
Our last stop was at the shopping mall at Karrinyup, another one of Perth's suburbs. From here, we handed for the Church of Infant Jesus as there was a pot luck dinner to celebrate the anniversary of the Church's dedication. After the dinner, we went to have a night view of Perth from King's Park. The visit was short as the strong wind made it rather cold. Thus ended my visit to Perth.
