We had two events this past Sunday - a birthday breakfast at the Royal Perth Yacht Club, which was founded in 1865 and is Perth's most prestigious yacht club in the suburb of Nedlands.
In the afternoon we had a farewell party for a Portuguese couple moving from Perth to Sydney.
Leaving home I saw the first rainbow which soon disappeared...
The club is just across the river from Perth's city centre, and it's a great background to the hundreds of beautiful boats. The sun eventually shone, the sky became bluer, even though it was quite cloudy.

As we left the club to go home we just drove around the suburb along the Swan River and at the end of one of the roads we came across another beautiful rainbow.

On the way home we cross the Mount Henry bridge over the Swan River, and the clouds are heavy and dark again.
In the afternoon we drove to the northern beach suburb of Trigg to join a group of friends to farewell a young couple moving to Sydney.
When we arrived there was a surfing competition just finishing. Can't believe anyone would be in those rough and cold waters ....
While we waited for everybody we had a hot drink at "Canteen coffee shop", and there was a little bird casually wandering around the place. The waitress said he was a regular visitor who came looking for crumbs. Sweet!
When everyone arrived we realized that we were far too many for the small coffee shop as well as they didn't serve alcoholic drinks, so we moved next door to "Kailis restaurant" where we had snack and drinks.
