Glimpses l .....


Oh how I've missed the city over the last few weeks, it was wonderful to be out of the kitchen and  strolling down St. Georges Terrace on a warm sunny day! On the Terrace a glimpse of  GH caretakers lodge (?) through the wrought iron, 'fleur-de-lis' tipped gate and below a peek at Government House through the foliage.. built between 1859/64 it has a very 'colonial' feel to it don't you think?
Turning down onto Barrack Street glimpses through to the festival in the Supreme Court Gardens....
Around the corner onto Riverside Drive and the gated entrance to the gardens. If you click the link you'll see a view down Riverside Drive from the Perth Convention Centre, this is the area most 'affected' by the Elizabeth Quay project! Oh, and while we were waiting to cross over to Barrack Street Jetty, we caught a right royal glimpse of Prince Harry on his way to the SAS barracks at Swanbourne. I think his Mum would have been very proud of her two boys. More glimpses tomorrow. Have a wonderful Wednesday, take care.....

  9. I enjoyed the stroll with you, Grace. If I lived in Perth, I would be happy with the caretaker's lodge.
