2012 - Backpacking to Perth day 3

Backpacking to Perth
Cape to Cape of Margaret River Valley
07 Sept to 18 Sept 2012
Day 03 Sun. (09.09.2012) – Boating at Canning River a tributary of the Swan River

Dave prepared the morning breakfast of toasted bread, eggs, noodle, baked beans and coffee. While waiting for my high school friend, Jenny Chuah to come over to meet us, Dave and Gerard took the boat out into the Canning River. We spent the day of family picnicking and boating by the Canning River together with Dave’s brother, sister-in-law, children and grandchildren.

As usual, Dave’s spirit session started at 4.30 pm and followed by wine. For another good dinner it was grilled beef and sausages. I too helped out to cook a prawn dish. Monica invited my friend Jenny Chuah and hubby Kelvin Tan for dinner. Jenny Chuah is from Teluk Intan, Perak and Kelvin Tan is from Malacca, Malaysia – both migrated to Perth in the late seventies.
