Lesson: crossing the train tracks isn't a good thing... Especially if you notice the fence when you start walking along the other side... then realize that the fence just. keeps. going. Definitely worked off the mexican that was for lunch.
|Someone has good CAR taste, but not so much on the color.|
|different types of trees!!|
|Fremantle founded 1839|
|Stain glass windows. Lub.|
|All the birdies.|
|Fremantle Post Office|
|Fremantle Railway Station. All the evening commuters were headed here so we thought we were going in the right direction... nope.|
|There were fun shapes in the sidewalk.|
|I can't even make a sky like this up.|
|My travel companion told me there was a rainbow behind me. I'm really gullible so at first I didn't believe him.|
He was right. Dammit.
|Dear Australia Customs,|
You guys are kinda psychotic about what you let into your country. That's probably for the best.
This is not me stalking you. -US Visitor
|I'm a rebel and I stopped.|
|Travel companion: "It was like a game to see how many letters they could stick on top of each other."|
I'm pretty sure this is the University of Notre Dame campus.
|So many old buidlings!! :)|
|Look at that sky. It's just.. breathtaking.|
|I didn't use one of these, but I did go into the post office in the shopping center near our hotel so I could mail off Teh Dad's father's day present. WAY easier than I anticipated and no silly customs form to fill out!|
|The point of no return.|
|I really struggled to NOT fill my camera with cloud photos.|
|3910s, what type of crane is this???? ;)|
|those clouds and more cranes..|
|Pretty sure the top floors were for backpackers.|
|And in color.|
Teh Bear will tell you I'm not great with direction. I'm good with directionS.. I'm not good with just inherently knowing with direction I'm going. Luckily, despite my protests that we were going the wrong way, my travel companion got us there with a, "See, told ya." Touche.
Not only did we find the ferris wheel, we also found Little Creatures Brewery!! My neighbor/friend/coworker had told me about this place so I was excited to have just stumbled upon it.
|Look what we found!!|
|Creating the ambiance.|
|Evidence the whole beer was consumed.|
My very first "I drank the whole thing" beer.
The menu was a little strange, but we figured it out. I ordered pizza and the travel companion ordered Kangaroo. One of the best pizzas I've ever had. Then I ordered my sticky toffee pudding (STP) (which I almost forgot to take pictures of and somehow managed to wait the extra moments it took to take the photo before jumping into my food-gasm mouth first). YUUUUMMMMMMM.
|THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER PUT INTO MY MOUTH FOR CONSUMPTION.|
tM + STP 4ever. (please add your own hearts around that statement)
PS this photo is extra large because of how awesome STP is. WHYYYY America, WHYYY do we not have
PPS. I really love seeing that the Australian Adventures preview list is getting shorter and shorter!!! :)
