Merton Street Diary: A visit to Hyde Park

Stephen had an audition for the next G&S production on Sunday and asked if I would like to go with him. Turned out I was the driver, but that was OK as we thought we might have lunch somewhere afterwards. I had no access to toilets at the G&S home base as they don’t want people to walk in on auditions and the local shopping centres ones were closed.

We decided not to try for a cafe, but I still needed to go, so decided to call in at Hyde Park. It turned out to be a good idea as we were fortunate enough to have sunshine and there is now a small cafe attached to the newly refurbished toilet block. The toilets are now unisex and each is a separate room, the best type of public toilet.

After a toastie and hot drink each, we walked around the lake, looking at the bird life and autumn colours. This park is very popular and there were lots of people.

Today we are getting ready for our Rottnest trip. Last year we went in May and had mostly fine weather. This year rain is forecast, but the temperatures should be milder than Perth and we can dodge showers.
