I had some errands to run...come to think of it, I have absolutely no memory of what I did that day. Oh wait - I was busy with housework!
That's right, I vacuumed the entire house, changed the bedsheets, tidied my room, put on two loads of washing, took Simba for a walk, gave him a bath, drove out to buy some vodka (for tomorrow's project), and then quickly got ready to be picked up by Ling and Shallen for our day's outing.
Each year I receive an invitation to a free wine tasting river cruise and am allowed to invite up to five guests. I wasn't able to attend last year's so I was really excited and looking forward to this year's one.
We parked near the Barrack Street Jetty and relaxed in the sunshine before the cruise was set to sail.

I love taking photos with my camera in natural lighting. They just look so awesome!
We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise and our wine rep was friendly, knowledgeable and happy to turn a blind eye when we polished off half a bottle of port when he was busy finalising our order at the end of the cruise. hee hee - *hiccup*
We disembarked in high, giggly spirits and I joined Ramona on the ferry to the other side of the Swan River where we met for dinner.
49/15 Labouchere Road, South Perth
We've driven past this restaurant countless times and have always said that we'll try it one day. Today was the day.
We shared a few entree dishes.
I called the oyster that was poached in lobster bisque
After our entrees, we were brought a complimentary palate cleanser of watermelon and mint granita.
For our mains:
He sat right across the table from me so I couldn't reach to take a photo!
We jokingly named this dish 'Rabbit 101'. It had rabbit prepared in several different ways. I found the rabbit sausage dry. The pate was delightful!
74 Angelo Street, South Perth
Ramona and I shared a couple of cakes.
I'm not really a fan of caramel but this was sooooo good!
You can see Noel and Fleurette had polished off their cakes before Ramona and I started on ours!
After dessert, we headed back to Noel and Fleurette's place and had tea and played a few games of Balderdash. Today's been a really really great day!!
