April 27 First Day in Perth (Day 13)

Our first full day in Perth started with a trip to the Doctor! Not for illness or injury, thank goodness! We did a little research and learned that we should get some vaccinations before we continue our travels in 2.5 weeks to Southeast Asia, even if we’ll be there for only a week! We were able to make an appointment right away and see a Doctor who recommended we get 3 vaccines; Hepatitis A, Typhoid and Cholera, as well as the 2024 Pandemic Influenza, and oral malaria meds to take before, while and after, we are in SE Asia! With slightly sore shoulders from the injections, we spent the evening on a walk with our relatives, my Nephew, his wife and 2 little kids aged 2.5 years and 7 months!

We walked to a local park and found the playground. The swing is always popular!

I couldn’t help but notice the bright colored Australasian swamphen, or purple swamphen, known as the Pukeko in New Zealand!

Our walk took us past a horse paddock and this guy followed us along the fence and let us pet it, maybe it was looking for a carrot or sugar!
