Not a single cloud to be seen and almost too bright and too sunny!

Being tired from the day before, what is best way to liven you up from your post-Christmas day coma?

A trip to the beach! All that sun, surf and sand does one wonders.

And that’s exactly  what we did! (‘We’ meaning Mamma Bear, Pappa Bear and myself, of course.)

Family time and sunshine all wrapped up in one!

We headed to Mullalloo Beach, with its wide bright sandy beach and calm water. The waves don’t tend to ‘dump’ you like other beaches further south, which is right up our alley.

Mullalloo has some great outdoor facilities as well, especially for families. There’s evergreen wide grassy areas, public BBQ’s, tables and shelters. A great place to play some cricket, or have a big family gathering.

But we skipped that and headed straight for the sand…

…And the rest of Perth seemed to have the same idea…

Come down on the weekdays and you have the place almost to yourself!

We wandered across the sand to find ourselves a good spot.

With all the things set down and the umbrella set up, Pappa Bear headed straight for the water, while Mamma Bear and I took a walk on the sand. I’m not a crowd person, so the further up we walked the fewer the people there were, which was perfect for me.

And always taking in the beautiful blue view.

I just LOVE the colour of Western Australian beaches. It’s as clear and blue as any island destination, yet it’s right at my doorstep!

It’s amazing to think the Indian Ocean from here just goes so far, uninterrupted by any continent.

You can ‘sea’ for miles!

I always love to stare off into the distance and in my head say, “Next stop… AFRRRRICA!” ( Naturally, you have to roll the ‘rrrr’s’.)

 

But soon it was time to head home. We had very important things to do…

Go home, get changed and then scour the shops for some Boxing Day sales!
