PIAF – Cello at UWA

Yesterday I went for a walk down to the river before breakfast. I caught the bus home. By the time I was returning the sun was very bright and it would have been uncomfortable to walk back. Besides, it is uphill! Stephen made breakfast.

In the evening we went to listen to Bach Cello concertos in the grounds of UWA. This is part of PIAF and the Chamber Music Festival. A very enjoyable way to spend an hour or so. We took our chairs, but found that they had provided enough chairs for the audience.

Afterwards we went to South Perth and watched the moon rise over the Darling Scarp. We had quite a good view down the river.

We checked out the ferry service to Elizabeth Key and found that it runs into the evenings, but later on the weekend than on weekdays. Still, quite a good way for us to get to Elizabeth Key. We have it on our list of things we would like to do one evening.

Some photos from today

We caught the bus from home, then walked onto the Island which is in the middle of the Swan River. There are supposed to be kangaroos in this section of the island, but there was no sign of them, and we didn’t see any when we visited before either. There is a special double gate to enter to keep the kangaroos in and predators out. The photos were taken about two and a half hours after dawn, and I did some post processing in Photoshop. There were no clouds and the promise of getting very hot, though it was still very pleasant at 8.30 when we headed home.
