Come in No. 9.....!



I was beyond chuffed when Bob from St. Louis gave me the heads up that Perth had made it into the New York Times list of  '52 Places To Go In 2014', what's more we were in the top ten.. No. 9 to be exact, check it out!  I think a lot of the credit goes to Perth's first female Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi elected  in 2007, if she ever decides to run for Premier she has my vote! For anyone interested 'How we chose our list of....' Above a shot taken from the crossover bridge to The Old Brewery over Mounts Bay Road looking up to the Federation Walkway in Kings Park.. below looking right up MB Rd along the Swan River and left towards the city. It's been an excellent week for me so far, hope it has been for you also.. happy Friday, take care..... Click here to see more skies from around the world and here for bridges.....
