Perth: Pride Parade #LoveWins

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 pretty scary – but dipping my toes into an event or two is something I find myself doing every year to keep a healthy balance. And can I just say that downtown Perth is so pretty with 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 roads closed off for the event:

Some of my favourite pictures of the colourful and unifying event… it was so heartening to see that the police even played a cohesive role in it!

It 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.

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!
