Our first day in Perth was a day off. After breakfast we stocked up with sun cream and hats and headed for the beach. A short train ride from Perth is Cottesloe Beach where we found a large group of the cast already worshipping the sun. After a couple of hours in the sun and a dip in the sea we were back on the train for the short ride to Freemantle for lunch. Fading fast in the heat, after lunch I was back on the train headed for the cool of my hotel room while the girls explored Freemantle.
