I Am Back ~ A Preview Of Australia

I know I know it has been way to long, but let me tell you it has been a nice little break that was much needed.  With the kids all back in school as of today I figure I had better get my creative juices going again, but that will have to wait until tomorrow, lol.  
Because I am really excited to share some pictures with you of my fabulous trip to Perth, Australia.

I was really worried about the dreaded 26 hour flight and really it is hard to comprehend how long that really is until you do it.  After a 24 hour delay only an hour flight from home I finally made it to my beautiful friend standing at arrivals waiting to pick me up.  

This was Kings Park which was in the middle of Perth I was told it is supposed to bigger than Central Park  in New York. It had beautiful big trees and flowers and look at the perfectly manicured grass.

Well you can't go Australia without seeing a kangaroo, it was pretty cool to see these guys just roaming around.  I even got to see a mommy with a baby in her pouch. 

We went to one of the local Aquariums ~ Aren't these Jelly Fish just too cool

Do you remember the Jaws movie where they had a tunnel over the sea creatures an you could walk around observing them, well this place had that.  Check one off of the bucket list, I have always wanted to see something like this 

How Crazy is this sharks teeth!

My Friend and I went on a little tour of the wine country and found this fantastic little place called House Of Honey.  They had every flavor of honey you could imagine.  It was the cutest little place.  

Next on our tour was Rottnest Island, we had to take ferry over and the only cars allowed on it are the few workers and the bus that runs the route around the island.  We spent a good part of the morning laying on the white sandy beaches.

Okay are these trees not the coolest thing 

The last thing we did on the island was tour this lighthouse.  We climbed the 152 stairs to the top and got to look out at the scenery.  I am a little afraid of heights so needless to say I was clinging to the side of the wall. 

I just had to share this one because these guys were just too funny.  There is this fantastic candy shop Roc Candy right in Perth.  They make custom candies with names or pictures on them, even after watching it I still don't know how they make it, it is just amazing. My kiddies got a jar full of these. 

On my last day in Aussie we headed to the beach to hang out and watch the sun go down. Shortly after I was on my way back to Canada.

I had the most fantastic time and had a great visit with my friend and her family.  There were lots of laughs and great memories made and I was so grateful for the opportunity they had given me to come visit.  As well as for all the help I had while I was gone from all the grandparents, Aunts & Cousins who helped watch my kids for two weeks.  

I hope you enjoyed the little tour of Australia
