Early Days


So,  here we are down under. Must be an age thing but I think the journey has taken more out of me than usual.
We flew Cathay Pacific and the service and comfort was very good. But thirty plus hours of travel and wakefulness has taken its toll.

We have spent time relaxing by, and in, the pool. Soaking up a few rays. Temperatures have been up in the thirties, centigrade that is.

On Friday we trundled down to Fremantle, for a mooch around the fishing harbour, which is always lively and interesting.
After a gentle stroll in the sunshine what could be better than a long cool pint of beer.  And where better than the Little Creatures Brewery . We have been visiting them since they opened. The beer is excellent and the food very good too, although we weren’t eating there this time.

Dinner was reserved for Kailis’ Fish Market Café Fremantle. Here, we had superb Snapper Fillets with Chips.

Saturday was very hot and, apart from a run to the bottle shop, the day was spent in and around the pool.

On Sunday we took a run up to Lake Leschenaultia

where we had a pleasant walk with an ice cream and watched the kids enjoying themselves swimming and kayaking..

Today has been spent, once again, in and around the pool although on this occasion my granddaughter gave me a thorough workout playing a cross between water polo, basketball and football.  Most importantly she beat me eight to five.

Little Creatures Lunch


Just had a very nice lunch, with my wife and two of my grandchildren, at the Little Creatures  brewery in Fremantle.

Little Creatures Brewery – Fremantle, W.A.

Eats were a “Prosciutto, Mozzarella & Lemon Thyme Pizza”, “Chilli Beef Nachos with Guacamole, S/Cream & Jalapenos”,” Steak Sandwich, Beetroot Relish & Frites” and “Barramundi Fillet with Frites & Salad”.

From our table this was part of the view at the back of Little Creatures. This is the replica of the Dutch ship Duyfken. The replica was built here in Fremantle.

Only two puddings, “Chocolate & Cranberry Brownie with Vanilla Ice Cream” and “Apple and Rhubarb Crumble with Vanilla Ice Cream”.

All that scrummy food washed down with Pipsqueak Cider (5 . 2%) for the grand kids, Little Creatures Pale Ale (5 . 2%) for my wife and a pint of White Rabbit Dark Ale (4 . 9%).

After adding all those calories we took a stroll round the quayside watching the fish and also took in a floating art exhibition ….
