We had an awesome time!! I had never been to Perth before! I loved it!!! What a beautiful and clean city!!!
So i thought i wont write too much.. i'll just show you our holiday in pictures...
Our main reasons for going to Perth was so Matty and our good friend Kato could compete in the Mulitplex Avon Descent. Which is a race where competitors challenge the Avon and Swan rivers in a variety of paddle and power craft in an exciting two-day time trial over 134 gruelling kilometres!!
I was the support crew for both the boys.. so i had to drive and meet them at various check points to see how they were going, cheer them on and feed them!! I was pretty stressed - lol!
Day one: both boys did real well
Kato, on the other hand.... well had crashed into another kayak on the way down a rapid.. and his legs got jammed into his kayak and he was stuck in his kayak in the middle of the rapid for about 3 minutes! Scary!! So he had to pull out of the race.. due to a broken kayak....
The boys looking closely at the dammage
Close up of one bit of dammage (there's lots more)Matty's Blister after two days of racing! Ouch!!
After the race Matty and I went and discovered a bit of Perth! We visited the Freemantle Gaol, which was reall interesting! We also visited a submarine (yawn) I think it was boring cos of the guide we had!! We spent a whole day in Freemantle - LOVE it there! So many beautiful buildings!!!
Here are some pics....
