I discovered two new things to do so that makes me one very happy UNYOUNG JAM.
Firstly – my friend J from Melbourne [a keen AFL Bulldogs supporter] and I went on a tour of Optus Stadium. The arena is situated on the banks of the Swan River, overlooks Perth City and its surrounds, and hosts all sorts of sporting and entertainment events. Its capacity is approximately 60,000.
The tour was very interesting, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The views were spectacular; my pick of the day was when we were up on Level Five, the view across the oval itself and then out across the Swan River to the Perth skyline was pretty impressive even if as a West Aussie, I say so myself.
Secondly I visited the Lightscape Display currently showing at our picturesque Kings Park.
Kings Park is 988 acres of bushland, and it includes the infamous Botanic Garden area which I believe has over 3000 different wildflower species growing there.
It is a favourite place of ours especially in the springtime when the wildflowers are in bloom – West Australian wildflowers are pretty unique.
We are lucky to have quite a few varieties growing here on our bush block; some flower during autumn but most of the orchids which are my favourites, flower during springtime.
The light display itself was scattered throughout the western part of the Botanic Garden area and both international and local artists had their work on show. The ways the artists used the park bushland and gardens to feature their works was pretty amazing; the tree areas were particularly impressive.
My favourite display was the one of the flower lights which was set up in one of the pond areas. I thought it was beautiful.
So, two new June experiences have been added to my memory box.
Today I say welcome to the brand-new month of July. With 31 days ahead of me I should be able to come up with something really good to do.
Until then – have a great weekend.
