Frementle

When we got to Scarborough, SK wanted to buy some T-shirts and bermudas. That meant making a trip to Perth which I kept procrastinating because I didn't like driving in the city.

We set off on Wednesday morning, got on to the highway and drove towards Perth. Even with the help of the GPS, I managed to miss the exit into the city. The next one took us to the outskirts. While making an attempt to get back on track, we chanced upon Harbour Town direct outlet shopping centre.

It was quite a miracle how we ended up at a mall where all the favourite brands are under one roof, at discounted prices! That saved us so much hassle. I must say it was a fruitful trip. We left with heaps of clothes!

We did some sightseeing the next day. AQWA is just a short and scenic coastal drive away from Scarborough. We paid A$28 each to see the same things we did 5 years ago but the guys didn't seem to mind.






The marina next to AQWA.

Feeding sting rays.

Since we were fairly close to Frementle, we stopped by for a quick visit. While I like the historical buildings in Frementle, the guys weren't quite as enthusiastic.

Unfortunately Frementle Market was closed on Wednesday.

We have pigeons and crows in Singapore, but they have seagulls here.




We flew back to Singapore the next morning. It was a good trip.

Shame we didn't get a good look at Fremantle. The market would have been fun.

I forgot all about visiting Little Creatures Brewery! You would like the weekend markets. Lots of fruits, seafood, nuts and interesting stuff.
