on to Perth

Home for the next three days
and a 5 minute walk from an outlet mall [a store called Cotton On was a HUGE hit in my books..thankful for good sales]
 and sunshine
HOORAY!! :) 

Day one
A long and warm walk through Kings Park 
and the Western Australia Botanical Gardens 

Overlooking Perth

The gate to the Gardens

 After the walk we took the train to Cottesloe Beach 

putting my toes in the Indian Ocean

Day Two
Ventured out on the train again
to take a Ferry out to Rottnest Island
I would compare it to Mackinaw Island but on a larger scale
There are no cars and you bike around the island
there are tons of beaches and walking paths and a little town

it was SUPER windy and warm!
but we didn't let that stop us
we still did the 22 KM bike around the island before our bikes were due back 

This island is also know for animals called Quokkas
they are out in the wild

and VERY use to people
aka I was WAY more afraid of him that he was of me EKKKK
he then proceeded to follow us to our bikes
Not a fan ;-) haha  if you can't tell by the picture

The views around the island were amazing!!

I had to go for a little swim
the water wasn't super warm

after the island we meet up with J and his coworker for dinner 
and rode the train back to our hotel

a long fun day
ended with a beautiful sunset

Day Three
Started off with a hike around Bells Rapids

There had been a ton a rain right before we got to Perth, which resulted in flooding

This was a VERY warm hike

Not many signs on this trail...which got us a little lost...we ended up just back tracking
not sure if it was because of the flooding and the path was closed or whatever
still a great hike
even though lack of signage there was one for this rock
Buttock Boulder
well it did look like it at least :) 

after the hike it was back to the hotel and off to the airport
next up an overnight flight to Auckland, New Zealand
the last leg of our trip!
