Perth (Friday)

Events of Friday 12th May 2017

I was up around 7.00 a.m. and accompanied my host, Keith Watson, on his walk to exercise his dog, Sasha, on nearby parkland. On our return, we had breakfast before getting ready to drive to see Birgit, a friend of Keith's for many years. On the way, we passed Bull Creek Station on Perth's excellent electrified suburban railway network. On previous visits, I've made use of this netwok.

Sasha came with us in the car and played happily with Birgit's Manchester Terrier, Pepper.

After a pleasant visit, we returned to Keith's home. After some catching-up, Keith and I drove to a nearby 'Subway' where we purchased a filled baguette which we took home to consume. Later I attempted to connect my laptop to Keith's Wi-Fi, initially without success, but a call to Keith's computer man quickly resolved the problem and I was able to check my e-mails and post brief reports to my blog.

All the travelling had left me quite tired, so I didn't do much for the rest of the day. I was quite impressed by the television news coverage on SBS (the Special Broadcasting Service which is part of ABC - the Australian Broadcasting Commission), less so by the Eurovision Song Contest coverage from Ukraine.

I retired early and slept very well.
