Perth In The Spring
We stayed a few days to witness my niece's convocation at UWA.
We then traveled south in rented cars guided by GPS and stayed a couple of days in a farmhouse in Margaret River, an area famous for its winery, chocolates, honey and other farm products. We had ice-cream at Simmo's. We went to the Sugar-loaf Rocks and the Canal Rocks and stared at the in-coming surf and listened to the mighty roar of the waves from the Indian Ocean. We were fascinated by myriads of colorful flowers growing on hill slopes and among the rocks.
Different people see different things. And different people see things differently. We see mostly what we want to see.
I was up and about one cold morning roaming along the perimeter of the farm overlooking a huge meadow. An older traveling companion remarked that there's nothing here. He saw that there's nothing of value growing on the farm. No fruit trees, cattle, sheep nor crops. Couldn't fault him for that. He's a business-man.
He wasn't looking at the things I saw through my camera's lenses. A lovely scene of fresh, green serenity on a beautiful spring morning.
