Enjoying the waves – Swanbourne Beach

It’s been the best five weeks since my son Laurence and his girlfriend Maddy have been back from Melbourne. The time has gone far too quickly. We’ve been lucky that they could spend so much time with us, especially over Christmas and New Year. Arriving on 4 December and quarantining with us for the first two weeks also meant we saw them every day. After that it was go, go go for them catching up with friends and Maddy’s family.

Yesterday we enjoyed an hour or so at one of Perth’s famous beaches. It took me a while to swim in the sea here, 14 years to be exact! But now I’m like a fish in water. It is extremely “refreshing” but once in your body does adapt. Hubby still refuses to go in.

In the distance is Scarborough

I prefer to swim where there are lifeguards for obvious reasons! But they like it here as it is not as busy as Cottesloe. I’ve bought myself a beach tent but have yet to use it, as it is not easy to take down, it pops right back up again!

I’ll continue to embrace the best that Perth has during this “no travel” period. I feel it will be a while before we leave Australia but I cannot complain at all after reading the daily news!

  1. Beautiful views Ali, how we’d love to be enjoying a swim there right now. Foggy and frosty with sub-zero temperatures here currently so slightly different.
