Cottesloe outing on a windy, stormy day...but the surfers were still there :-). First rain in Perth, in April, in 33 years!!

Just after brekkie we saw this small group protesting the sharp cull. 
Surf's up!

...and now Karla is keen to surf too. I'll have to hire a board somewhere...

Almost 14, but thankfully always willing to play games with her little brother :-)

A homeless man in Freo, busking for money. He sang beautifully, unlike most buskers. Good on him.

Rain falling, making the photo hazy. We are so thankful for some rain,
which is something you don't see much of in Perth.

Drops bouncing of Karin's cars roof.

Long-lens photo's...(~400mm focal length; 35mm equiv)

An old Lime Kiln chimney off Bennett Ave in Freo. I liked the moon in this shot.
Eugene and Karla...snapped while they were exploring some bush-land (and looking out for in RSA :-))

....some local spiders....

...or as a friend of mine would say, "looks like a size 10 boot" (to smash it with!)

Sleepy days...Cottesloe & Freo

On Platform 6 waiting for the train from Perth to Freo.

It was the annual "Street Arts Festival" in Freo, with some amazing entertainers, including these huge "Dino-Emu's".

Another (Sydney based) street busker doing his thing. Excellent show and he would have earned hundreds of dollars from all the spectators.

...heading home. Phew!

Just another winters day in Perth :-)  -  Cottesloe Beach yesterday.

Eugene with "Wilson".

...and Karla getting a big kiss for her efforts to rescue Wilson from a crack between the rocks.

Lazy Easter day...

Attended a beautiful Easter church service this morning, had a relaxed braai and just chilled out. Great start to the holidays.

...and playing with watermarks...

Melktert for tomorrow's braai at the Bann's....and there is Peppermint Crisp tart too!

Karla watching the royals at the Royal Easter Show in Sydney on TV, while I had some meat on the BBQ.

Mmmm! Prawns cooked in Garlic butter and Rosemary. Done in a cast iron pan on the Weber. Deeeeeeeelicious!

Shark spotting and Man of Steel

Some quick snaps from the weekend just passed. I was sick, so the beach was NOT good. Hot flushes and just made me feel even worse. Karla was there for Netball fitness training.

A common sight in Perth...shark-spotting choppers...

Looking North from Leighton to Cottesloe Beach. It was 35 deg.C on Saturday (in mid-April!).

Geno watching "Man of Steel" in his Spiderman undies :-)
