We were walking past the Western Australian Medical Museum in Subiaco recently and went inside for a look. The museum had plenty of graphic reminders of how much medicine has improved during the past century.
We especially liked the early “lying in” room above and this collection of Flying Doctor memorabilia. The volunteer run museum is only open on Wednesdays and some Sundays, so check their website for details.
There were also a few vintage caravans at the Shannons Classic Car Show on Sunday. This little teardrop was towed by an Austin A70.
And we noticed this twin-axle fibreglass Olympic caravan in the carpark.
There were also some great lineups of sports and muscle cars at the Shannons Classic Car Show at Ascot Racecourse on the weekend, including Corvettes (above) and Austin Healeys.
And somehow the Toranas managed this amazing display of precision parking.
Yesterday we went along to the Shannons Classic Car Show at Ascot Racecourse in Perth.
Despite despite threats of rain and thunderstorms from the weatherman, the cars gleamed in the autumn sunshine beneath blue skies.
William Shakespeare, the Immortal Bard, died 401 years ago on 23 April 1616. We saw this memorial to the great English poet and playwright during our visit to London late last year. It’s in Southwark Cathedral (below).
Above the memorial there is a stained glass window which depicts many characters from Shakespeare’s plays.
As well as yesterday’s wildflowers, we also spotted a few animals during our recent visit to Serpentine National Park. The kangaroo above and kookaburra below were hanging around near the picnic area – presumably hoping that someone would drop part of their lunch on the ground.
Although it is mid autumn here in Perth, there were still some interesting wildflowers along the Baldwin’s Bluff trail at Serpentine National Park. There was plenty of the large flowered Hibbertia species above and also these small daisies.
And a few spectacular flowers on the Lemon-scented Darwinia as well.
We were pleased to see that Lemon-scented Darwinia was featured on the large sign in the picnic area – because it featured one of our photos ( with our permission, of course). Oops, sorry for the shameless self promotion – but we did earn the bragging rights after all.
