Our last night in Perth just so happened to coincide with the Pride Parade. I generally steer clear of masses of people I don’t know – they can get prettyÂ scary – but dipping my toes into an event or two is something I find myself doing every year to keep a healthyÂ balance. And can I just say that downtown Perth is so pretty withÂ its mix of sleek modernity set along older, ornate architecture? Sunset washed us in pink as I set about taking photos of quirky murals as we explored the roadsÂ closed off for the event:
I first noticed Brass Monkey Hotel in daylight, and didn’t know that the same venue was located at a strategic bend for the parade.
Some of my favourite pictures of the colourful and unifying event… it was so heartening to see that theÂ police even played a cohesive role in it!
ItÂ was an eye-opener. :)
Ottie and I had to leave the next morning, and Kooling and Elv were super kind to give us a ride to the airport and to stay with us for breakfast.
Some Instagram Stories snaps – Ottie hankered for something to read on the plane home, so I picked out Terry Pratchett’s Guards! Guards! for him. The Night Watch is my favourite Discworld arc, and somehow I ended up reading it instead. 😂
That sums up our short trip to Perth. I’d love the visit the continent again someday!
