North and South.....


There are two ways to cross from the South side of the Swan River to get to the city, you can drive on the Kwinana Freeway over the Narrows Bridge where it then changes to the Mitchell Freeway and heads off to the Northern suburbs and beaches. Looking down from Kings Park, to the right above and below is South Perth and the Coode St Jetty the alternative and more enjoyable (although I've never tried it in the peak time) way for Perthites to get to work in the CBD.
Looking to the left, city side and the bigger and very much busier Barrack St. Jetty. It was along Riverside Drive (lined with trees below) that I'd hoped to catch the walkers/runners in the Mothers Day Classic, I was going to say ah! well next year, but next year I hope to be IN it, unless any other parts of my body fall apart :) If you look down in the right hand corner you can see the colourful Cirque du Soleil tents in Langley Park. OMG if you follow all the links today you are going to know Perth so well before you even get here haha! Hope your week has started well, take care.....

    I could say that I was in Perth recently... which is true, but it's the Perth in Ontario.

  12. Cirque du Soleil was over here just recently, too - I didn´t go, though... Great pics, Grace, I so loved Kings Park! And have the coolest magnet ever from there: "Australian men - shear genius!" showing two sexy men .. well shearing sheep :-)

  13. Is the sky really that blue (1st photo). You're in the middle of Fall now are you not? It is gorgeous. Reminds me of San Diego with the vibrant light & colors.

  25. Great photos Grace. I always take my overseas visitors on a ferry crossing from South Perth into the city. It's a wonderful way to see both sides from the river.
