And so it begins…

27 Mar
Britt and I arrived in Perth bright and early this morning, only to catch a train to Fremantle, just south of the city. We booked into the YHA Backpacker’s Inn and set off to discover the area. It wasn’t long before we stumbled upon the Fremantle markets, which they have running every weekend. So cute! They had everything from opals to model guitars to ostrich eggs!

We enjoyed a fun little lunch on the patio of The Monk.. or at least Britt did.. their BBQ ribs were amateur at best! It was nice to sit back with a sample tray of in-house brewed beers. I quite liked their wheat beer best, although the bacon-flavored one was certainly interesting!

The Leftbank was recommended to us as a solid location for a Sunday session, so we decided to check it out. Great atmosphere with lots of different levels and patios outside! We stayed for dinner and a drink or two (all pretty average) and casually participated in some people-watching as we experienced our first Australian west coast sunset (over a river and some trees… still holding out on the ocean view). All in all, it was a pretty successful day for squeezing in some time-filler activities on our day of travel and clock adjustments. I’m feeling pretty good about Western Australia!

    Bacon is finding its way into everything these days…I’m sure that is good for everyones health right? I saw bacon flavored vodka the other day.
