Walk with me...



It was hot yesterday, even hotter today! We went for a stroll around Hillary's Boat Harbour five minutes from home. It was 7 in the evening and everyone in Perth had the same idea! In the shot below you can see the Rottnest Island ferry returning home past the lighthouse and into the harbour. I don't think I've seen so many people fishing along the pier before...


... although something tells me this family group weren't quite into it :)


Searching for tadpoles.. fun!


Swimming and picnicking alongside the shallow beach..


The Breakwater was packed to overflowing...


... but this tender moment was my fav shot of the day, who says I'm not a romantic :) Happy start to the new week, take care and stay safe...

  3. Beautiful captures as always, Grace, and I have to admit that I'm envious of your beautiful weather!! It's cold, gray and WET here in Portland -- the usual for this time of year! But it could be worse -- could be snow and ice, so I'll quit whining!! Hope you're already enjoying a great new week!!

  8. Had to chuckle at that first photo--no one around here will be walking around in outfits like that for quite a while.

  9. Love the first and last pics, Grace! The first because it seems so far off in the future before we dress like that here and the last because it is wonderful!

  12. Beautiful sky and nice colour in the sunset. I am surprised that I dont see more people at the beach in this heat! I saw news stating that Perth was going through 41 celcius as well.

  14. Beautiful pics, Grace! Quite a contrast here- we had snow all day yesterday, and freezing rain in the night, so everything's coated in ice.

  17. You have a perfect place to take wonderful photos! And it sounds like you're weather is about the same as ours is during the summer! Nice to have water nearby, though, as it can make one feel cooler if nothing else!

  33. I really like all these photos. People are drawn to the ocean on hot days. I guess that is true for just about everywhere.
