As the sun goes down in the west.....


As the weather warms up and the sun goes down you'll find the Breakwater Tavern at Hillary's Boat Harbour bustling with Perthites and tourists alike, winding down with a drink at the end of the day. I'm not much of a drinker (apparently I'm hilarious after two haha!) but I have had a really good meal upstairs at Ishka Restaurant. I'm sure you've probably guessed by now that the marina is one of my favourite spots to hang out, as you sit in one of the many cafes looking out at the boats in the harbour, it's easy to see how lucky we are. So here's the thing, why not something along these lines for the Swan River foreshore improvement scheme (yesterday's post), it would be so much more appealing than highrise n'est-ce pas? So cheers! Have a wonderful weekend, take care and stay safe.....

  1. Well I guess I'm inclined to agree, maybe because I love harbours like this.

  2. Perth appears to be fully decked out with all kinds of fascinating places and I especially like this as I love boats, water, docks, and restaurant/bars. And I can't help but wonder how funny you would be after 3 drinks! :-)

  4. Sigh, so gorgeous! This would be a favorite too, if I had the luck to live there. And that menu!...I'll take the quail and scallops:) (Thank you also for sweetly directing me to Cloudia's site - so fun to find a beautiful link to Hawaii online!)

  6. That looks a fun place to walk around and enjoy. We have family living in Torquay, Victoria, and they are so ready for warmer weather. You have a good weekend too!

  7. I'd say it would be more profitable to build, sell or rent highrisers.

  14. There is nothing quite so fun as messing about in boats, or something like that. As much as I love sailing, it is the harbor that makes me want to write poetry.

    Lovely views here, Grace.

    Bises,

  23. I am captivated by Perth. Not only is it a desert like city but the ocean is right there creating really interesting ecosystems within your area. I imagine Tucson would be similar if the ocean where right on our shores. Well it could happen....California is just a quake away from falling into the ocean:)
