Last week it didn’t really seem like spring here in Perth. Lame. But what a difference a week makes!
Temperatures have upped all the way to 25/26C (that’s ~78F), with the forecast for this weekend slated to be 32C (91F)! While I don’t miss the oppressive Houston or Dubai summers (or late springs/early falls for that matter), I did miss warm weather and continual sun – what can I say? I must suffer from seasonal depression disorder ;)
I am so thrilled with this sudden shift in temps and sunshine that I took advantage of it this week and spent lots of time outside in two of my favorite Perth outdoor spots: King’s Park (larger than NYC’s Central Park!) and Cottesloe Beach.
Cottesloe Beach: I love this beach! Clearly it has the turquoise waters and fine white sand :) but I think the forestry (Norfolk Island pines, primarily) and pathways that line the beach on the back make this a special spot.
The Indiana Teahouse is a building you’ll see featured prominently in photos of “Cott” (I put this in quotation marks because although a lot of people call Cottesloe “Cott”, I don’t think I’m cool enough to do that yet); the Indiana Teahouse was built in 1910 as an ice cream parlor. Now it’s a little restaurant spot right on the beach.
Thank you for indulging me with [landscape] photo overload…the scenery was just too good to pass up!
Have great weekends, y’all – and until next time….
