Day 12 - Sunday in Perth

Today we remember our dear Matthew died in a car accident 17 years ago on this day...and it was a Sunday too back then.

So it was appropriate to be able to worship at St George's Cathedral Perth on this day where the worship and music was lovely and the sermon by our old friend the Dean, John Shepherd, was truly inspriing. We were celebrating the feast of our Lady and John's message was scholarly, researched but very relevant. The Cathedral was full of people some of whom we joined for lunch at the Criterion Hotel afterwards. We shared a table with our own organist from St Silas Albert Park, Hume McGrath and his friend Paul Aldred. Also at the table were The Rev Jennifer Furphy and her husband, John, from Flinders Victoria.  It was a terrific lunch and great to catch up with all these people.

After some shopping on the way back to the apartment Ray and Glenys headed out to the banks of the Swan River where we each did a little watercolour painting and had a stroll along the river.

It has been a relaxing day and a lovely way to remember our Matty.

PS  We have updated two of our blogs...... as we now have the magic card reader to transfer Ray's photos to our little travelling notebook computer.

We can now show you -

Day 7 the coral trout caught by Ray at Broome and eaten later that day (sorry Rach!)
Day 11 we found the Swedish smorgasbord!

  1. The fish would make a great watercolour, but I couldn't spy the smorgasbord; now I'm hungry!
