Thanks for popping in.
We're off to the North Perth suburbs where a huge number of new houses are being built in named strips stretching from the Freeway and railway to the sea. Each suburb has its own shopping mall with super markets Coles, IGA, Target and Woolworths as well as restaurants and smaller shops. Schools, playgrounds and community parks and barbecue areas are provided with different signature styling, all modern, clean and shiny.
|Butler station about three quarters of an hour from the city centre|
|Low lying buildings and wide roads, many named after British towns|
|Lake and park area|
|A different suburb|
|And another, all slightly different in layout|
The National Park nearby is Yanchep, offering several trails of various lengths. We chose to walk around Loch McNess taking in the wetland wildlife and plants.
Whilst enjoying a cup of tea at the old Yanchep Inn, out popped a couple of kangaroos from the nearby bushes.
Stopping off at the Sorrento Quay and Hillarys Boat Harbour, a pretty shopping centre on a harbour with a wealth of restaurants, gave us a chance to admire the white sand again.
Then a slow walk back along Quinns beach to Chippys Beach Shack for a delicious fish and chips to watch the sunset. It doesn't get much better than that!
