Since we’ve been here for a few days, it’s time for another entry along. We have taken plenty of photos. Not sure how to resize them onthis Mac, so will post this blog entry with no photos and put photos up later when have worked out how to make the images smaller.
Unfortunately for us, Fremantle is not the best place for a holiday if you want to get out of the city and see some of Australia because it is such a cool place with lots of bars and cafes that we have not really left the town! Weather has been a bit colder than expected at night. Still hot enough to burn us though (particulary if when putting on sunscreen you miss a large area of your back…).
We did go to Perth Zoo today and had a look round the city. One of the highlights of the zoo trip was seeing the Orang-Utans. They were behaving a bit different to how Clyde did in the Clint Eastwood films…pictures will follow but basically Mr Orang-Utan kept grabbing Mrs Orang-Utan and shoving her hand up his bum (like, RIGHT up!), not content with this he then rugged it out and licked her fingers (hence the title of this blog!) :-) The most amusing part of this ‘show’ was watching the parents look on horrified while the kids said ‘What are they doing Mummy………?’
After the fun of the zoo we just ambled round Perth drinking coffee and beer and generally soaking up the atmosphere.
Anyway, we are hoping to get a car hired tomorrow and head down to Margaret River for a few days at the weekend with Nick and Lisa. Maybe take in a wine tour, see the dolphins and go to some caves – we’ll keep you posted!
