Our New Toy...

This boat is officially know as "Glenn's Dream Come True"!!! We bought it about six weeks ago. Glenn has been wanting one for as long as I've known him (sixteen years) and finally, the time was right and the perfect boat was available for purchase, so that's what we did. And already, we've had some fantastic times on it. In fact, the weather in winter is so much better for boating than it is in summer (providing it's not raining). Last weekend we had a beautiful (but very chilly!!!) day on Sunday, so we took my mum and dad and my brother and his wife out for a cruise. We headed up the river into East Perth. We tied the boat up (I'm sure that's not the correct 'boating' terminology...I must brush up on that!!!) and jumped off the boat for a wander. There's some gorgeous cafes and restaurants around here so we stopped for a coffee before heading back. That's my dad there tieing the boat up.

Doesn't this look was such a beautiful spot.

And the kids had a ball playing in the autumn leaves. They gathered them from all around, into a giant pile and then jumped all over it. Hey, if it means we can have a coffee in peace, they can do what they like!!!
