Halloween - Karla & Callan preparing for "Fright Night" at Adventure World

Callan and Karla putting "blood" on their purpose-bought shirts, sitting in
the garage with all our boxes (while the house is being built).

Rambo, a.k.a Mr Ripped-Abs, looking on...

Make-up in progress...

Ready to rumble. Artwork by Karla.


Getting both with a straight-face was a struggle...you know, teenage girls with constant giggles...




Karla & Callan posing with Eugene. He was so worried he would not be part of it :-)

Port of Freo & Oberon Class submarine

Heading into Freo on the Blue Cat (free) bus. 
Immigrants like us, but from many years ago, and without their parents. Scary stuff!

The entrance of the port, with the Rottnest Island ferry returning from the island.

A spectacular glass artwork showing a whale-shark.
Wish I could have it on the wall at home.

An old, decommissioned crane at the port entrance.

"Ocean Drover", one of the life export ships that operate from the port of Fremantle.

Some Cormorants enjoying the warming sunshine.

Gino, our beautiful boy.

The Oberon Class submarine at the maritime museum.

A cut-away showing the torpedo tubes and doors as used on the Oberon sub's.

Sandri's half-marathon in Freo

Sandri managed to finish the 21km run in a very respectable 1:58:57 sec. The rain was pouring down, so the cooler weather probably helped all the runners. Good stuff Sandri!
