We drove to the city!

We had a project. To return a pair of sunglasses. Off we went to the city.
Off through Perth. The trees are amazing this year. I love the ivy on this building.



A long tradition of burning brush as settlers cleared the land. You'd think we could come up with something different in 2016!


Lots of reds!


Grampa had bought two grandies a small Hallowe'en flashy cards that light up and play music. He hung them on the play house for a surprise after school!


We ambled down to the Scottish/Irish shop. Venison and Cranberry potato crisps! The tea bag had 200 individual bags in it!


I love the mosque. It'd be interesting to visit. There kids were there last year for Open Doors.
They gave out copies of The Quran.

Then there is the cow corn, ready to be processed.




Still a few geese around!


Buildings...



The old Richmond Bakery, we used to stop there frequently, but they sold. It's a pub now! (Richmond Bakery closes its doors after 62 years)


Back in Perth. We need a ring road!

Venison and cranberry chips? Pretty sure they're not sold in Scotland. Yorkshire tea?? Dreadful stuff - unless you like it strong enough to hold up spoons. VEGEMITE??! C'mon Aussie, c'mon, c'mon.... **ahem** sorry, was a bit overcome for a mo'... &*<> YAM xx

I agree with you about the burning but it still happens here too in spite of every effort to come up with alternatives.

other than that smoke, it was an absolutely stunning drive; a perfect time of year in your neck of the woods. I love how you two turn an ordinary errand into an adventure -- and lots of beautiful pictures.
