Our little holiday to Wa and Qld

Around Father's day each year we head north to sunny Queensland for the Noosa Jazz Festival. This year we decided on a quick 3 day visit to Western Australia to visit our daughter first. She is in the Navy stationed in Rockingham. Our plans went astray when we heard they were going to be at sea that weekend but too late to change so off we went. We still stayed at her house...Big "mum hugs" to Irish Dave.
On our arrival in Perth we were unexpectedly met by our friend Alice who had made a mad dash to the airport after being woken only about 10 mins earlier with the news that we were arriving!! Woohoo how special does that make one feel. She took us home for a wonderful home cooked breakfast then. While Rod did some chores Alice took us to the Les Murdie Falls for a walk. Great views of the city of Perth from here. We returned to collect Rod and were driven out to the Swan Valley and Jane Brook winery for a leisurely lunch among the vines. About 5pm we decided we really needed to head for Emily's house in Rockingham (about an hours drive south). Where we stayed the night .
