Boardwalk reflections.....


Yesterday was crisp and sunny in Perth, just perfect to sit for five minutes, drink a hot chocolate at San Churros and watch the coming and goings on the boardwalk at Sorrento Quay. This cute little chap below was looking a little glum as dad had been talking on the phone all the way along the boardwalk and back..come on dad, ditch the phone, there's jumping fish to see (there really was, I saw them!!).....
Just when you get out your favorite umbrella, it's all over....!!
A bit of brekkie and a catch up on the headlines.....!!
 and there's always time for a little canoodling.....!!
Sorry I haven't been around much the last few days, I've been trying to get my garden (read jungle) trimmed (read hacked) before real winter weather sets in, sometimes (like now) I think it would be so nice to have a small patio with a few tub trees and flowers or even an apartment with nothing at all, but then when spring and summer come around again, it really is a pleasure to potter out there. I hope that your weekend is going well, take care and stay safe.....

  4. Loved the photos - and your conversation is enjoyable, as always! I feel like I am right there along with you! I was having the same lament this morning as I was weeding my garden...maybe it is time to just let it go to grass. Then I remember how much I love the flowers, and I keep weeding!
    Hope you have a wonderful rest of the weekend...stay warm!

  5. I've not been around much, either. Had son and daughter-in-law for a week! Great fun.

    This is another of your most delightful posts; filled with energy and interest and beauty and again you pique one's conscience by calling attention to the fact we so often drift through life without really seeing or enjoying the wonderful things around us!

  13. beautiful photos...that Dad really should ditch that cell phone..."talk to the kid Dad"!

    I have the apartment with the patio and the dying plants in pots...even though we've had rain recently apparently it's not been enough...I have several sun scorched plants to recycle...argh!

  14. My biggest grip about electronics...they interfere with normal human communication. C'mon, Dad, is absolutely right.

  15. Great reflection and a lovely stroll along the waterfront. Dad should ditch the phone as little ones grow up too quickly and are gone...

    We have spent the day working in the yard and the garden - well, I spent an hour and husband spent the day - hah! I do love the paths, the hydrangeas, the shades of green, etc.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  16. I agree Dad needs to ditch that mobile and spend a bit of quality time with little junior. Nice to see a touch of sunshine in the west .... Pass it on!

  20. Wonderful Grace but I will pass on the chocolate! Hope that your gardening goes well. I have similar jobs to do but perhaps another day. Enjoy a relaxing and busy (and hopefully not too cold) day in the garden.

  25. Five minutes just isn't long enough to sit and people-watch! And I have a condo, and miss my yard.

  29. Nice to see your sunshine, Grace. Mobile phones can be such an intrusion to a day out. I hope he was able to do without it for a while.

  30. Such wonderful glimpses of life round the shoreline! Fun photos! I have one more week at school (just finished crazy report time, so I haven't been visiting as much as usual) and then the holidays begin! I too will be out there in the garden mending its beauty a little (a lot!!!)

  31. Very cool! The seaguls are my favourite shot.

    Yes, I've seen Joe's "Feeder". Amazing, isn't it? He invented a structure to put the camera inside his mouth and it's very funny listening to him describes it all. The clip was quite a big success!

  32. All kinds of activity going on there on the boardwalk.

  33. Nice photos, I feel the same about the garden. We have a jungle in our backyard and I sometimes dream of an appartement with a look at someone else's garden....

    ReplyDelete
  34. It is hard to spend time tending to the garden when the boardwalk beckons.

    ReplyDelete
  35. People watching...great way to spend some relaxing time!
