An overcast day in Perth today and a little water falling from the sky but you could hardly call it rain, but that was the weather for our trip to Fremantle for lunch.  This morning it was the usual Sunday trip to the dog beach and most of us had a swim with the Barkster .  On our return we headed to out to Fremantle for a fish and chip lunch at Kailis.

After lunch it was time to visit the Army Museum of WA where we spent close to two hours viewing the exhibits.  In a post 1945 section the Museum covered activity of the Australian Army through to Afghanistan.  I was able to show the kids the uniform and weapons I used during my time in the Army Reserve from 1982 to 1988.  During my time in the Army most of the weapons and uniforms were still very much similar to what was used in the Vietnam war.

On our way back home we caught sight of the Leeuwin Sail Training Ship, which I have had to pleasure to shoot a few times before, unfortunately this time the ship was a little far for my lenses.
