Art and real life..



I really enjoy Sculpture by the Sea each year, the outdoor gallery on Cottesloe beach couldn't be more perfect for these fun, at times thought-provoking and often mocked creations. The Sunday morning 7am shot above shows the scene before the crowds arrived and even though I was there primarily to see the art, real life usually finds a way of gate-crashing the event :) my lens found the two young girls, twins I'm guessing, skipping along behind dad on their early morning beach walk delightfully irresistible! 


We always have breakfast at Beaches Cafe, directly opposite the beach. On Sunday we were there as it opened at 6.30am, by the time we walked by an hour and a half later it was brimming out onto the side lawn. Eating out in Perth has a reputation as being expensive and I'm sure, as is the same anywhere, certain places can be.. we had three substantial breakfasts, two coffees and a juice for the grand total of $61.. personally I think $20 per person for a scrumpsh brekkie in a fantastic location is not over-the-top expensive, what do you think? Happy Thursday, take care and stay safe...p.s. I fibbed about the sculptures, there's one more to come :)

  1. I imagine walking along that beach is a regular thing for them.

  3. Love that early morning shot along the beach, Grace. $61 for three for a good brekkie sounds pretty good. We paid about the same here on Sunday for three and then $10 for a tip.

  4. I agree with Pat, that price is not bad for a great breakfast meal and that location alone is a huge bonus. Last time I was in California, I paid that much for breakfast at a place right on the beach.

  5. What a lovely beach and what a great spot for sculptures and for cafes that serve breakfast. Your photos are so nice, Grace; just excellent work and brilliant colors.

    Re breakfast: It's about twice as much as you'd pay here for the same breakfast, but one would not the view or the ambience here that you do there. Someone once told me "You get what you pay for." That, I've found, is usually true.

  6. They are very sweet! Being sort of a Parisienne, I think that's very cheap. You wouldn't get half of what you had for 20€...

    And you'd never get me to have brekkie at 6:30 on a Sunday morning!!!

  9. Nice beach day. The cafe reminds me of Flagler Beach not too far from my house.

  11. I adore those pictures of the girls with their Dad! They remind me of when I was a kid growing up near the beach.

  12. $20 per head is not too bad for a decent breakfast. It's your coffee prices that are going to have me whingeing. We may have to give Beaches a shot ourselves.

  16. It is frost again here this morning, so now when I look at your posting today.... it feels so good. Australia, the beaches, temperatures, the joy and fun..... and ZERO woollen clothes:) The number of tourists coming to Perth must have gone up, since you started blogging!

  17. I have really enjoyed your photographs of the sculptures on the beach Grace. $20 for a scrumptious breakfast by the sea sounds like a bargain to me.

  18. I've found good food in a nice location anywhere in the world expensive, 20 dollars Australian roughly just over £10 seem like very good value to me for breakfast overlooking the beach and sea...

  19. It´s so good to see that little family at the ocean, the warmth is practically over here :-)
    Oh, Grace, you live but once, always enjoy such a brekkie, I´d say.

  20. Nice photos of the family walk, have no opinion about the prices, I don't know what a dollar is in euros and am to lazy to look it up. I shoud say don't worry and enjoy as long you can affort it.:)
