A Walk Down Wellington Street In Perth

Had a bit of time to myself the other day and went for a walk eastwards along Wellington Street in the city. I was interested to have a gander at the old buildings and the new. Especially wanted to see the new stadium although I don't know exactly what it is going to be used for as it is a bit on the small side. Construction seems quite well advanced though.

I realised a few things. There are some ugly old buildings in Perth. There are some ugly new buildings in Perth. And Perth isn't such an inviting place in the middle of winter on an overcast day (the days leading up to it were bathed in pleasant sunshine). Actually, I found it a bit depressing and wondered why any tourist would bother to visit. I giess that it didn't help that I was without a plan to see anything in particular. Still, I enjoyed seeing some of the older buildings which were in good nick.

It is neat for others to experience new things that you take for granted that is why they love to visit. You live in a neat place. Have a fun week. Gill

I guess you are right Gill. I wasn't in the best of moods and wasn't looking at it particularly from a tourist's perspective. It is a good place to live.
