Hehe, I am being sorta touristy on the blog lately! but not completely since obviously Perth has always been the backdrop to my life...
The DNA Tower was built in the early 60's, and I have lots of fond memories of my brothers and me having the time of our lives pelting up and down the tower as fast as we could, while Mum and Dad boringly sat with the picnic on the grass nearby. And since we would come home so tired all we could do was to fall into bed early, then I'm sure the DNA tower was equally beloved by Mum and Dad as well...!
When my own children were little they loved running up and down the tower too, so each whole new generation repeats the same routine.
Nowadays, the tower is much beloved by fitness fanatics too.
So I am enjoying my me-made May photos at the mo'... employing a few Perth landmarks certainly makes the photo-taking, always the most challenging part of the, er, challenge for me, a heck of a lot more exciting and interesting. And happily this is another spot that is basically on the way home from dropping my son Sam off at uni, which is part of my current daily routine. He is learning to drive, and guess who gets to be the driving instructor?!
