So you can imagine that I was quite excited at the prospect of meeting my cousin in person. Terese met our train and took us to Dome for a hot drink...as it was a cold, windy day!
Eventually it was decided that we would go for a drive around the town...it's a lovely town. It has lots of lovely old buildings but there has been a lot of new homes built in recent years.
We spent some time at the fairly new war memorial...
It was very windy and cold down on the waterfront...brrr 😉
Soon it was time for lunch...Terese took us to one of her favourite restaurants down near the waterfront.
Lingering over our lunch until after 3...yes 3!, it became obvious that the Ostro staff were closing until they reopened for dinner. Time to get back to the station.
After lots of hugging at the station, DH and I boarded the train and headed back to Perth.
Remember that family tree 'dead end' I mentioned? Well later in the day I got an email from Terese; with this photo attached...
