Crawley Boatshed encore.....!


I know I've shown the Crawley Edge Boatshed before but it's almost impossible when driving along Mounts Bay Road not stop and take just one or two more. Built in the early 1930's the boatshed is probably one of Perth's most well known and photographed landmarks. In the shot below you can see the UWA boatshed (University of WA) peeking out from around the bend in the road and to the left in the background the Royal Perth Yacht Club. It's all going on along the Swan River :) I really should have saved these for James' Weekend Reflections, ah well, will have to keep my eyes open! Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe.....

    I don't know what it is about the shades of blue that make me feel so good....

  5. You picked a perfect day for taking this photo. With the sky and the water almost the same color, the boat shed really stands out. In fact it almost jumps off of the photo. Very nice.

  6. Charming photos, Grace. I think I would find it hard to past up taking repeated photos too. Lovely spot too.

  7. I'm loving the "walk the plank" walk way to the boat house. Health and safety laws be damned!

  19. It really looks like the end of the road, the last stop. But in a pleasant way.

    We'll stay safe if the tornadoes keep away. News of Monday's disaster in Oklahoma probably got around. Scary.

  25. Such a lovely place. I'd love to spend a day on the water on a boat that came right out of that boat shed; actually any boat shed would do but this is especially nice. Beautiful photos, too!
