I Took A Walk Yesterday

Actually, I often take walks but yesterday I walked with my eyes open.

This is some of what I saw.

I detrained at Perth Staion and discovered the new walk UNDERNEATH the station and all its rail lines which took me directly to Murray St. in under 300 comfortable metres.

Still brand new, no shops or stalls along the sides which I am quite sure our avaricious Government will rectify as soon as possible.

But it does look like a skateboarders dream!

Then I walked up Hay Street towards Elizabeth’s Secondhand Bookstore where I find much of the “Street Wisdom” I post on Wednesdays and Sundays.

I also find wandering through a book store, new or secondhand, is therapeutic and renewing.

On my way, I spotted something magical!

Yes, I know it is “Just another old building”. The sort of building modern developers would love to pull down and replace with 103 levels of blank concrete and glass.

But I spotted who built it.

JK Rowlings must have released one of her characters into Muggledom.

Can’t quite see who?

A few steps later, I found one of those marvellous “Pop-up” shop fronts which are becoming a feature of the changing face of my city.

I had to take a look around in this temporary wonderland. It is only open for seven days.

I didn’t buy any of the posters which were available.

Then I walked across Hay St to His Majesty’s Theatre to see what they have on stage at the moment.

And I know several people who would love to see this!

I must take more walks with my eyes open!

  1. Very nice, Archie… The tunnel under the streets reminds me a lot of the underground walkways that are all over Singapore. such a nice way for a pedestrian to get around.
