Some random shots of Western Australia.

Some random and self indulgent shots from my recent visits to a land down under.
Main form of transport for the first trip was a Holden Rodeo dual cab. Quite nippy when it wants to be and I have the speeding ticket to prove it. Vehicle of choice for the second trip was a 4.6 V8 Ford Explorer. Quite likeable in a crap sort of way but had a serious drink problem.


Perth:


Kings park

Scarbrough beach:

When I was there in December I was in time for the Ashes:

I was there for the dy England got thrashed:

My vehicle in December the trusty Holden Rodeo seen here off roading around Cervantes:


Miss March in the same location:

Nice sunsets:





Pinnacles:


What do you use to send 35000 sheep the middle east to be slaughtered?

Random scenery:



They'd be sheep:

The most bizarre celebratory coin I've ever encountered:

Big tractor:

Flying dog:

Benji:

The road to Kalgoorlie:

The Super Pit:

Some terrific shots there Michael. That "Super Pit" really is, eh? How deep is it, d'you know?
Michael

It's 500m deep and about 3.5km long. It's a gold mine:

Nice.

I enjoyed Perth when I was there, and look forward to returning some day soon.

I have relations in Perth, an Aunt and 3 cousins and I would love to visit them one day, especially when I see some of these fotos.
Love shot no 12 btw

I have family in Australia and they're always saying how Saltburn is so much nicer.
Michael

It's one of the first things you notice out there that a lot of the place names are familiar - scarbrough being an example above. I didn't know they had a saltburn there but I imagine it would be a lot nicer.

I've always had a soft spot for Saltburn after we repaired the pier there. Cast iron welding - we made a good bit of money out of that one.

It still can't hold a candle to Bamburgh and Northumberland though.

I've never been on either Bamburgh or Northumberland pier.

That's the point - they don't need a pier.
..

Maybe you could sell them one?
Bob Sacamano

I do know where there is one and I have some spare bits...
..

Well there you go...

Of course as I gave you the lead I think there should be a drink in it for me.
Bob Sacamano

Personally I think you owe us all a drink - the amount of time we all put into rehabilitating you.

You just haven't realised that sooner or later you'll be assimilated. Resistance is futile.

The Holden is a rebadged Isuzu I think - there are a few around here - there is even one with a STi grille which is strange.

I've seen a few here was well. The older Rodeo was sold as a Vauxhall something, possibly Rodeo! That vintage is basically a Frontera with a pick up rear.

The night-time shots and 'pinnacles' are great. Looks like a great trip.
