Outback Gallery

We had a half day free so shot up to Swan valley again for coffee and cake. On the way back, we called in to the Gomboc Gallery and Sculpture Park an hour before the posted closing time as it looked like it was still open. Turns out it wasn’t and we were very politely asked to leave but we did have a good 15-20mins of walking around the first part of the gallery so here’s a few of the images captured there.

Perth Christmas Cruising

Well we had a wonderful surprise sprung on us last night. Told only that we might want to bring our camera’s and some sturdy footwear, we were driven an hour or so down the road to Mandurah.

On arrival at the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre we were greeted by one of Santa’s elfs and boarded the “Christmas Lights Cruise”.

We then spent two hours slowly making our way through Mandurah’s waterways and canals admiring how the various waterfront property owners had tried to out do each other as the best lit house. As you can see in the images, competition was fierce!

Palace Wedding’s

Went for a much more sedate and leisurely stroll today through the backstreets of Nob Hill down in to Cow Hollow. A few good photo ops along the way as we walked past yet more finely architected houses.

Everyone loves a good wedding and we stumbled across several when we reached the Palace of Fine Arts. Made for some great pics I recon.

Started with a great coffee at Ritual Coffee Roasters.

Then on to de Young Museum (briefly) to get tickets to Legion of Honor and the museum. We then walked up to the Legion of Honor and back down to de Young Museum for a night visit before heading back to Union Square for dinner.

Game Day

With all the exercise this week (see my Fitbit stats at https://www.fitbit.com/user/23G9R6) we needed a day off from that today.

To celebrate, we went to a ball game as the San Francisco Giants hosted the Chicago Cubs at AT&T Park with some tickets I bought off stubhub a while ago.

SF didn’t disappoint either, winning over the visitors by 9-1 with rookie Kelby Tomlinson entertaining the crowd with a grand slam for his first career home run. Just awesome to be in the sellout crowd for that!
