I feel a good majority of my posts on this blog mention the words– ‘today was a beautiful sunny warm day of clear blue skies.’ Anyone not living in Perth might find this difficult to believe. Aside from my fascination with the weather, Perth truly is the sunny state and today was much the same, …Read more »
C Blu restaurant, part of Ocean Beach Hotel (or as most know it ‘the OBH’) runs a $10.00 breakfast special all day long, and located across the road from the beach is superb for extending a morning in Perth’s beach neighbourhood of Cottesloe.
In my early 20’s the OBH was a place for a sneaky drink …Read more »
On the way home from spending the night at Sandy Cape we pulled into the seaside town of Cervantes, feeling hopeful we would find a place for a cup of coffee.
Cervantes is historically known for its cray fishing industry, this is one place in Western Australia where you can eat the local delicacy almost …Read more »
On the way to the beach one weekend we stopped by Nature’s Harvest for a coffee, and to try CocoWhip. Napoleon Street, situated across from Cottesloe train station has a few good spots for coffee and Nature’s Harvest would have to be one of them.

When we arrived at Swanbourne Beach the car park was all but full, and as we walked towards The Shorehouse, it was pretty clear this newish restaurant was drawing in a …Read more »
Setting out on a morning city cycle we were semi confident we would miss the storm predicted for later in the day, consequently the much loved Perth Christmas Pageant was cancelled. Ever since the great storm of 2010, storms are taken seriously, but only really occur 50% of the forecasted time. So the weather was pretty good …Read more »
Who would have thought cycling along the railway tracks could be a little scenic and peaceful? For part of our cycle this morning we were cocooned by bush and old trees (between Claremont and Subiaco). We started our journey from Claremont train station and apart from a few disconnected sections at the beginning from Claremont, we …Read more »
Early Sunday morning on our cycling travels, we decided to stop for breakfast at Il Lido. I’m not sure if it’s because we are out and about cycling more these days, however, I’m noticing a decent bicycle culture in Perth – both road and off-road. Weekend mornings are especially good around the Freo area and along the …Read more »
Finishing our 3 day ride along the Munda Biddi trail and 71km behind us, we were talking about a nice big meal and barista made coffee when we rolled into Donnelly River Village. After we unpacked the bikes and trailers we made our way to the nearby town of Bridgetown, wandering along the main strip …Read more »
