My second Cousin Matt Durdin and his partner Kym O’Dwyer, who we stayed with in Mandurah, headed into Perth for the Easter Weekend. We organised to catch up in Fremantle for brunch. It was a great atmosphere down there, as they had closed off the Market Street and had live music and a marching band and lots of little pop up bars and restaurants. We sat outside a Cafe and ate good food, drank good coffee and soaked up the atmosphere and the beautiful weather. Luckily Kym had her Sunnies this time, so she didn’t need to engage the services of her friend to photo-shop them in.
After brunch we headed North of Perth to catch up with Col’s cousin, Mark Harper. We spent the afternoon there chatting and catching up. Mark is living in a share house with a couple of other people and we got to meet Sarah who was really lovely and made us feel very welcome. Mark and Sarah are both FIFO workers up North WA and it was interesting hearing a little about their work and life as a FIFO person. All roles have their Pros and Cons at the end of the day. We stayed and talked until evening and then drove back home to Raegan and Ken’s. I didn’t realise how close Fremantle is to Perth. It was nice to drive through Perth even briefly.
