17.11.2018 – Good being home

Home two weeks and for the first part, it has been a blur of work – Mike working at the Perth 4WD Show – time with our family and resting after the drive home. Then slowing winding up and starting to catch up with friends.

Shopping at the new Westfield (Carousel) Shopping Centre at Cannington – definitely a change for the better. Rooftop dining and meeting place unique and a good setting to while away some time. Unfortunately while we were there, the rest of the Perth population thought so too.

Recommendations for restaurants:

“The Gate” at Cockburn – Outdoor and undercover sports bar revamped and inside, restaurant. Enjoyed dinner there last week with meals reasonably priced.


“Kelly’s Café & Restaurant” within All Palms Garden Centre, Canning Vale. Again, reasonably priced and fantastic food. It was lovely to sit on verandah away from others, and catch up with good friends. As well as the garden centre to walk around and check out the plants and outdoor ornaments, also some older furniture in a separate building, and gift store.


“Coco’s”, South Perth. Restaurant overlooks the Swan River towards Perth. Fantastic service and meals. Good venue for a special celebration.
