What's your fancy.....?


Will it be coffee in one of the cafe's looking out over the Swan River with the WA Rowing Club boathouse and Riverside Drive in the background....what about a 'segway tour', looks like fun and maybe you don't even have to  have a sense of balance or a driving license :)
A leisurely cruise along the river to the Swan Valley on the Lady de Vine might be your thing... I didn't realize until I started taking photos just how many excellent venues there are at the Barrack Street Jetty, apparently all happy and working with developers of Elizabeth Quay next door..sounds good on paper! Wonder what the view looking back to the city (below) will look like in 2000 and whenever :)) Happy beginning of the week, take care....p.s. my 'fancy' was the first choice! The November 1 theme for City Daily Photo bloggers is "Heights."

  2. Ah, yes! I could definitely enjoy sitting there with coffee or a drink of some kind enjoying the view! I always love being near the water! Terrific captures for the day as always and a great way to start my day!!

  5. I´d go for the first one, Grace! Segway-tours are offered here, too, and I even saw a man in his 80´s using one. But, ewww, no. And heights? Not my thing! Water... hmmm, maybe, let´s see - soon! :-)

  14. I think Segways can only be used on private land here. Yours seem to have a driver taking a tourist. They can be quite dangerous. I think I would prefer a cruise on the Lady de Vine.

  15. Then we are in agreement. Pull up a chair under one of those bright red happy umbrellas and I will order the coffees.

  16. I wouldn't mind a cruise or a nice spot of caffeine in the beautiful setting - ahhh, just what the doctor ordered! Can I get my doc to write a prescription for a vacation, I wonder:)

  19. A segway tour Grace. Now that would be fun. Gee that as an eclectic mix of architecture in your last photo. Not too sure about the green spire. It looks like something from the Jetsons. I wonder how many of your readers remember the Jetsons.

  21. Ha, ha, I could have imagined you went to the cafe and watch over the water. No segways for me too.

  23. The top shot does it for me big time, Grace. Love going out for coffee. I agree that Perth looks so neat even on a dull day.

  24. Although the scenery in all of them is fantastic, I'm going to opt for having a cup of coffee and gazing at the Swan River. Great photos Grace!
