Squid Lips, Candy Cows & Margaret River

Entrance to Lake Cave Western AustraliaMy partner and I spent a lovely 3 nights away recently in Margaret River, at the beautiful Riverside Tourist Park in Willmott Avenue, a stone’s throw away from the Town centre! We left the suburbs of Perth around 11.00 am on Thursday 23rd April and arrived at our new temporary residence 3 hours later.

Pretty in Yellow & Red

Yellow cupcake

Yellow_and_redCupcake

Yesterday I got a lovely surprise at work, when a colleague kindly gave me this beautiful and tasty Cup-cake from Maven Espresso Cafe for a “treat”.   I was hungry and so after taking photos of this work of art, I ate it.   I do have a sweet tooth.  I have probably tried every type of cup-cake from Maven by now.  I love and appreciate them all.

For more photos and information about Maven’s sweet delights, please see  THIS  post.

Of Boats and Birds, of Fremantle & Fishing

Crested-Tern-Fremantle-31-Jan

John Steinbeck wrote “Of Mice and Men”, here I am writing of “boats and birds” and of “Fremantle and Fishing”.   The above photo (click to see it larger) was taken by me of a Crested Tern bird at the South Mole (harbour) of Fremantle city, in Western Australia.   A “Mole” in harbour terms is a massive wall built out into the sea to protect a shore or harbour from the force of waves.

Sean and I went fishing there, arriving by 6.00am, Friday 31st January 2014 (the start of Chinese New Year 2014 / 2015 ) because I had looked up the tides and best fishing days on the internet and advised him it was a time of high fish activity, after the “Super Moon.”

Well, Life is funny, because we hardly caught anything, as opposed to when we went last which was on the Public Holiday for Australia Day, Monday 27th January 2014.  He caught about 12 fish then, and you can read   what happened to two of those fish  at my other Blog, Fascinating Animals, if you really want to.

When I say “Life is funny”, of course I mean Life is curious, and it was due to curiosity that having photographed a huge cargo ship coming into Fremantle, see photos below, that I went to the trusty Internet to look up details about it.
