New Years in Perth

After two weeks on the Gold Coast, Tania & I headed off to Perth to catch up with Lisa & Andrew.

Lisa & Andrew live on a 100 acre farm in the Swan Valley.

They share the farm with three dogs (“Jara” the kelpie, “TJ” the Labrador & “Trixie” the cocker spaniel), three horses, about 30 cows, ten sheep, an alpaca (called “Macca”) & numerous ducks & geese.

It was interesting to wake up & wonder what animal would be staring back at you on the front veranda.

The Swan Valley is full of wineries & restaurants – we did not know that before coming over.

There are only so many wineries you could visit in the short time we were there – we gave it a red hot go!!
