Teaser week in Perth

If anything, these past few days just showed us how much Western Australia has to offer, and what little we’ve seen of it. Back in Sydney now, but already dreaming of going back and exploring all the other nook and crannies, including Broome, all the way up north in the further reaches of the state. Oh well.

In descending order, our highlights:

  1. Biking and snorkeling around Rottnest Island. I huffed and puffed my way around the island; it’s been too long since I got on a bike! But the weather was glorious. Hot sun with a steady cool breeze, and if we got too sweaty, we just cooled off in the water.
  2. Kayaking to Penguin Island where, along the way, we paddled up close to lazing sea lions and a pod of dolphins
  3. Walking short sections of the 135 km Cape to Cape trail. Stunning coast line. Oh to walk the full distance!
  4. Sneaking in a cheeky 2 hour SUP along Cottesloe Beach just before our flight. The water was soooo clear and inviting

We also managed to get in a bit of wine tasting in Margaret River, but for perhaps the first time ever, our heart wasn’t really into it. We just wanted to get back to the beach!

We know we aren’t supposed to pet the quokkas, but they didn’t get the memo and crawled all over Jeff
