🏄 Paddle your day away and enjoy some fun in the sun 🌞. We trust you can see why the locals love it this much 💦! #CityBeach boasts crystalline turquoise waves that lap ashore onto the soft, white sands. The perfect concoction to soak up some vitamin D as you take a quick dip 🏊 or even play beach cricket 🏏. And of course, you can't beat these picture-perfect views, just a short drive from Perth's CBD. @larkshots had the right idea - follow in his sandy footsteps 👣, grab your bathers and get going to this @destinationperth beach.
Less than one week to go 🤪
The last week has been full of bitter-sweet events, a last girls night out 🥂, last day in the office 🖥️, selling the last of our things at a car boot sale 🤑 and a farewell Australia day in Jurien where Beau had a final playdate with two of his oldest friends and I said goodbye to their mum who is definitely one of my best friends in the world 😍. It won't be goodbye forever, just for now but it was sad. An end of an era.
The Patrol 🚙 has had a big tune up but still has a little issue to sort out which has eaten into our savings and is giving us all the run around 🤔
Things have stepped up a notch at home though and the final push is being helped along by Brent's mum who's come up to help us.
This weekend our bed has gone so we're on mattresses on the floor and our white goods go over the next two days meaning we are about to find out what living only with a 40l fridge and 40l freezer is like.
I'm almost done with clothes packing and I've been ruthless giving away 5️⃣ bags of clothes from my wardrobe and 3️⃣ from Beau's. I've saved a few timeless irreplaceable items to be stored at Brent's mums and some sentimental things but we're really culling everything we can to live the simpler life. It's extremely therapeutic.
So here we are with four days to go and loads to do still. We can't wait to get on the road and it's weird to think this time next week we'll be on the freedom ride. #travellingaustraliawithkids#biglap#nissanpatrol#td42#travellingfamily#westernaustralia
Having fun in the sun today pretending to be a tourist in my hometown. What we thought was a 20km ride turned out to be 33km 😳 We took the Wardandi Track from Margaret River to Cowaramup.
Enjoyed a cuppa at @twocrackscoffee and a lil something from @tempertemper_margaretriver then cruised home again.
Often we get so caught up in the doing of life that we forget to make time to have fun.
I love going for bike rides it takes me back to summertime holidays as a kid and always brings me joy.
❤️💙👍 Great find in Sainsbury’s this! Great full flavour, smooth, easy drinking wine. Can’t remember the price but it was probably around £8. We had it with beef and it paired nicely. It does state it pairs with red meats so we did well. It was so nice on the palette and you can easily get the fruity tastes. Brilliant find - that’s another for the wine cupboard #redwine#shiraz#australianwine#coupleswhowine#winereview#sainsburys#westernaustralia
