Photo Diary: An Afternoon In Perth


A few weekends ago I spent an afternoon in Perth. Perth is a small town about 45 minutes from Ottawa where it looks like how Gatineau should look. It is so unexpectedly pretty that you wonder why it is so pretty regardless to the lack of population living there (it's a good thing!).

A great thing about Perth is that it is full of consignment stores and second hand stores. Another great thing is that Perth is full of retired people and old ladies have a lot of fur coats. After some haggling with an old lady I got myself a beaver fur coat for $75 in which I look like Cruella Deville. The beaver coat is so heavy that when I hung the coat it broke my clothing rack in my basement. Karma from the Beaver Gods perhaps? Still totally worth it.

  5. That is a pretty little town. Whatever you're standing in front of in the 1st pic reminds me of my parents rose hedge. The blooms didn't look like roses, but the thing had major thorns. You look especially lovely, must be the fresh air. :)
    Great deal on the fur.

  6. PS - that coat might be older than you are, it doesn't have any bad karma left.

  10. What a lovely place and what wonderful photos. The shot of those quaint storefronts is so European, especially with the hanging baskets and urns of flowering plants . Looks like a place one could truly relax and unwind in.

  12. The place really look gorgeous! I absolutely love the river! The water look so nice and I would love to stand it in!!! I thought for a few minutes that you were in australia Perth! I still find it a bit funny how so many cities in north america have names or other actual more well known cities or are the same as cities in europe!
