Rottnest, Western Australia

Beautiful beach, toes are like shells.

C0lours of salt lakes are spectacular

Caught this swallow flying over to catch the insects in the air

Had a fantastic weekend thanks to the grandparents, on the beautiful island off Perth. Stayed in the little chalets, cycled everywhere and brought the rain with us! but the skies soon cleared. You cant beat swimming outdoors, even if it is meant to be winter here in the southern hemisphere.

Elephant Rocks, Green Pool, Denmark, nr Albany

I am so in love with this part of the world, the colours of the rocks and shapes are so different & ancient. Those Elephant Rocks sure look like whales to me and Im told when the whales come with their babies in June they shelter here on their journey.So they must act as camouflage.

Tingle Trees, Walpole

On the way to Albany, beautiful Tingle Tree forest, with tree top walk high in the canopy. Preferred being on the ground with these magnificent trees, so big, people used to park there cars inside, as you do in WA.

Amazing Albany!

Back there again this weekend, 5 hours from Perth to drive but the air is so fresh, the ocean so blue and the feeling of a vast continent really hits you when you realise that the next country from here is Antartica! This really is the end of the world and somewhere I have always wanted to hang out, lucky the Oz grandparents live here now to babysit!
