The karri-lined avenue leading to King's Park, home of the WA Botanical Garden. This is one of the most impressive botanical gardens we have visited.
A massive Moreton Bay fig tree at Kings Park.
The DNA tower featuring a double helix of stairs.
We happened upon the wedding of Sam and Miguel. Part of her vows was to promise to root for the Sydney Swans, a footy team. No mention of God in the wedding!
King's Park is a nice mix of open space for picnics, pavilions, art installations and history; not to mention botany.
Common in the park were red wattlebirds, feeding on the flowers.
Back in central Perth we happened upon this lovely old fire station.
We almost ate at Jamie's Italian.
But settled for a nice open air coffee shop.
We visited St. Mary's Cathedral which was quite beautiful inside.
Near the font was an alcove with this wooden carving of St. Joseph the Worker with mallet and chisel. An Afghan refugee crafted this in 2009.
In the WA Art Gallery, an art critic feeling rather blue about this painting. He kind of gets lost in the painting, don't you think?
I call this statue in the market district, the pickles. It seems rather out of place, but I guess modern art is like that.
Well that's it for the last couple of days. Hope everyone is well and staying warm at home.
