18 A royal park

Kings Park is one of my favourite places to go in Perth. It's perched high on a hill and has a wonderful view of the city, the Darling Ranges and the Swan river. Its jewel green lawns are perfect for a spending the day lying on a rug under a shady tree reading books, an evening picnic or a lazy  walk after work. Since yesterday was my last night in Perth (I'm flying back to NYC via a couple of days in Melbourne) Kings Park was the perfect place for one last dinner with my family.

On a different note, as I was finishing up writing this post Mum brought me a freshly squeezed orange, apple and carrot juice with a sugar coated lemon as garnish... why am I leaving again!?

Happy weekend, I hope you have a lovely one wherever in the world you are!

From Perth, with love xox

Ahhhh how I adore Kings Park - its our own little slice of heaven in a busy (read: small) city! Your photos do it beautiful justice and what a perfect place to go on your final night in Perth. Morgs and I had one of our first dates there (picnic) and I have had many a big family gathering on that pretty green lawn. It would be the biggest happy memory and secret keeper for so many :) Hope you have a great time in Melbourne (or Melbs as we like to say) and have a safe trip back to NYC xx

p.s of COURSE it was in Freo! So gorgeous.

Great shots! Travel safe and have fun in Melbourne, can't wait to hear all about NYC! xo K

Aww :-) so sweet! Give Melbourne my love and have a safe flight back to NYC in a couple days. If you don't know it already you must try it for a sunny day lunch. On Sydney road there is an amazing little cafe called Green. The food is all homemade and amazing! It's near the royal parade end of Sydney road xx

Kings Park looks like a wonderful retreat. It's no wonder it's one of your favourite places in Perth. That freshly squeezed orange, apple and carrot juice with a sugar coated lemon as garnish sounds pretty good too :) Enjoy your last weekend in Australia my dear!

I have loved seeing Perth through your eyes. Melbourne is one of my favorite places in Australia. Something I have learned to love about Australia is the Fauna and Flora, so unique and beautiful in it's own right. End your time in Melbourne and have a safe flight home :)

This is so serene and scenic. I wouldn't want to leave all this natural beauty behind either.
