Perth Journal, Day 02 (cont)
We traipsed across Bathers Beach, in the hopes of losing some calories after our fried fish lunch. While Singapore is an island with quite a few beaches, the shore isn't as pretty as Fremantle's. Such a treat to walk on the lovely (scorching) white sand.
We stopped at the Round House, built in 1830, this is the oldest building in Western Australia. I peeped in a little and it seems to be based on the panopticon concept. It's also a great spot to look over the city. I really like how low the city's skyline is, subtle and unassuming.
I am so glad that our apartment in Fremantle was the only place that responded positively when we were searching for places to stay in Perth. Fremantle is the perfect place for a holiday. It's dynamic, atmospheric but yet manages to remain laid-back. Our landlady remarked at the end of the trip, that we all seems so much more relaxed after the holiday. I wonder how stressed we looked upon arrival. -__-
