Dreamtime, Thirty years ago today, my wife and I were on that old Mississippi paddle boat on the Swan River, live jazzband, sumptuous meal, booze, warm balmy night. Truly Perth at its best, a night to remember.

Yes, we have enjoyed a few river cruises on the Swan and had a la carte meals. Not sure if the paddle boat is still in use, you have to go up the Murray these days for those. Did you ever go over to Rottnest Island, or tasted the fish n' chips down Freo?

Dreamtime, The Murray river I have not seen but I once read a book about two boys canoeing down it. Visited Rottnest Island a few times but rats with kangaroo legs - 'ouh'. Yes I went to Freemantle once when the World Race was on - sat on the rocks and watched a couple of boats come in. Yes we had a special fish and chip shop we liked in Freemantle. I liked the place but I hear it's changed a lot since I was there. Got interested in a very old boat they were re-building in the maritime museum. Been to Ascot races too, loved the Burswood. But don't have the money or age to suit the Aussie immigration board these last twenty years.

Kaga, You must have seen the Batavia in progress in the maritime museum. The Quokkas are very friendly and are protected now on Rottnest. That place is only for the school leavers these days to let of steam and the ones that don't behave are sent back on the earliest ferry. Freo has changed for the better, a whole new centre but unlike Coventry have maintained their history, only since the 1800's of course - very Federation. The old prison is a tourist attraction now but you can stay the night if you are willing. Oh my
