Western Australia Maritime Museum

Now, what have we here?
Whoaaaa... would you look at that anchor!
Torpedoes... life size in comparison to the front of a submarine...
Want a Submarine? It's just sitting here...

And that's the size of the propellers... Little One, they''ll slice you in half so easily!
The Western Australia Maritime Museum is situated in Fremantle and here, on the docks...

The Entrance that greets you once you get past the reception counter.
And here's the reason WHY we are here...
You didn't think we came all the way here just to see some boats, right? :P
Ladies and Gentlemen: Please meet the Megamouth Shark!



Certainly, Little One went bonkers peering, staring, looking in all manners possible at the preserved shark due to his, yes, love for sharks.
And while he just keep on looking, I went visiting.
Now, living in a land not so far away from Australia, you tend to read about something called the America's Cup - a sailing trophy that was usually dominated by the Yanks.

But that was to change with this yacht. For, for the very first time, they lost. And the Aussies won it...

 And while i gallivanted around the museum, this is what entertained Little One and missus once he got bored of looking at his Megamouth.
One last look from the top...
Moby Dick action anyone? :)
He found his favourite shark soft toy. Unfortunately, we couldn't find it in the museum gift shop, nor anywhere else...
Definitely would have been his favourite toy of all times... :)
The End.

Fremantle or Freo...

As Fremantle or Freo wasn't that far by train ride, we decided to pay it a visit. Actually, there's a more compelling reason, but I'll let you know in another post.
 They have old buildings. And I mean old buildings dating back to the previous century!


 Why's my Little One so interested? It's actually a whaling tunnel!
 We thought we'd let Little One have some fun at the beach, much like Cottesloe... turns out, this one (Bathers Beach) is dirtier...
 So after looking forlornly the the poor state...
 We decided to head back up...
 But not before passing by the Docks and the Port.
 It's still early and sunny when we headed out of Fremantle @ it's railway station.
 Prius anyone?
 The train tracks cross the Swan River where the port lies...
 As missus says, couldn't resist...
 As it was still nice and sunny, and a waste to head back to early, we then stopped at Victoria's Street stop and walk down.. (but not before crossing a very busy road) to Leighton Beach.
 While it wasn't as clean as Cottlesloe, nevertheless, Little One enjoyed himself immensely.
 Kayaking anyone?
We had a little coral reef action going on... :P





 Missus and me... Love You!

 Heading back to Perth... while Little One enjoyed the trains, he hated the sound when the wheels screech away giving that high pitch. So poor Little One got scared... therefore, missus had to cover his ears... like below.
The End.
