I had a great afternoon being shown around Perth by Sue Waters and colleague Frances. They were… rather prolific with camera and using PDAs to twitter as we tooled around town.
They took me to see the city views from Kings Park, where we also managed to see real vegefitti, flowers, and the bizarre Boab tree. We had lunch. Sue twittered. I for to dip my toes in the Indian Ocean. Sue twittered. I hung my arm out the window and they said I broke the law.
And then… then…. we went looking for the grave of AC/DC former lead singer Bon Scott. We found the location of the cemetery in Freemantle, but the place was huge! How did we find it? Sue twittered (yay!) and we found it!
So I have achieved a closing of a teen-age loop being how crucial “Highway to Hell” was during my teen years in Baltimore, and my memories (fuzzy though) of seeing them in concert.
Then we headed over the the “Left Bank” on the river for some drinks and food.
thanks Sue, Frances, and later Marcus and ….. (oh shoot my mine just blanked on her name..) This was a great way to crown this time in Perth.
At this point, I find my self the farthest distance from home, and am now on the return path with tomorrow’s flight to Darwin.
