We are going bonkers for Honkers

We decided to commence our holiday Friday leisurely as our Flight from Perth was 1.10am Saturday morning. After a sleep in, checking our luggage requirements one last time we headed to Perth around midday. Caught up with Jeremy then Natalie. Enjoyed a lovely dinner & catch up where Annette joined us. A quick shower then off to the airport.

Our Singapore Airlines flights were both on time. Perth to Singapore then Singapore to Hong Kong. Of course waiting at an airport looks the same the world over. This is Hong Kong.

Awaited our bus connection then headed to the Prudential Hotel. Over some very impressive bridges and past multi storey accommodation.

Freshened up & a nap then we were off to hit the streets. It was slightly wet. Not too bad, but it made navigating Temple Markets interesting without an umbrella.
After a nice evening walk, with no riots, we headed to a local restaurant. The Coconut Tree Thai. And of course you have to eat/drink a coconut. IMG_20190831_204219360.jpg
Later in the meal we did experience the riots. As 4 black dressed, and masked vigilantes stormed quietly into the restaurant for a meal.

Live Man City game shown only in Hong Kong. And Ian was very happy again, a win for City.

As we know plants require rain to grow. The Nannup Flower & Garden festival provided the rain. It fined up for Saturday. Here is a view from our dining room.

We have attended several presentations such as "Growing microgreens" with Steve Wood. Attended a Gardener & The Chef, "Treasures from the sea" presented by Deryn & Steve. We were given a sample of Kefir to make up at home. It has Probiotics which are good for the gut.

We have also had a few visitors. The Patey Family from Busselton & Cecilia from Nannup.
Parked up beside were the Jones's.

We visited the town hall and it's displays.

Sunday, our day to leave Nannup for now, Deborah couldn't resist doing a workshop on making a Kokedama.

Back home safe & sound as we swung past the iconic Busselton Jetty.

Melba & Rocky performed like a smooth couple on the dance floor.
