Who forgets their camera on a day out? Me, that’s who! Luckily, I had my trusty iPhone to save the day. Speaking of iPhones, has anyone gotten the new iPhone 6 or 6 Plus yet? I’m eyeing up the Plus.
I’ve mentioned my boys’ obsession with collecting coins in Perth. Our trip was coming to an end, and they still didn’t have enough coins to call it a collection, their opinion, not mine. So, they planned a day to maximize coin collecting, and as they said, “Avoid boring places!”
First up was the Maritime Museum. We were just in the door when the coin machine was spotted. Five seconds later, with three happy boys gripping treasure in hand, we had a look around the museum.
This museum has lots of boats,
And a ‘sea monster’.
Did I mention the boats? There were a few.
A kid should be able to find something interesting here. And mine did. The toddler play area. Now if I call them my babies they can’t complain.
On the way out, we admired these globes in the gift shop, and now someone wants to start a collection of globes!! My boys? No, me! The apples didn’t fall far from the tree, don’t you know.
As we left the museum we saw a sign for the Fremantle Cruises. Some bright spark had an ingenious idea, “Maybe we can get a coin there without doing the cruise?” I think someone is playing their old mum, and had that all planned out. Two coins down.
Next, we went down the road to The Fremantle Roundhouse, the oldest public building in the State of Western Australia. Yep, it had a coin, and a nice little bit of history, too.
After, a quick walk on the beach behind the Roundhouse so mum could get her ‘grounding‘ in.
Lastly, a visit to Shipwreck Galleries. This place was awesome, and the price in was perfect… Free! Lots of stories, and artifacts from ships that were wrecked off the coast of Western Australia. Well worth a visit, and THEY HAVE COINS!!!
So, all in all, a perfect day was had walking around Fremantle, four news coins and a ‘collection’ made, and over 13,000 steps on my Fitbit. Win, win!
