Why Julie and I thought we could walk around the vineyards of Swan Valley is beyond me. A vineyard requires land, a lot of land, for the vines and I think we were caught out by the scale of the beautifully laid out map. Everything looked so close by, on […]
A visit to Cottesloe beach is common for those who live in and around Perth and, apparently, if I had visited a week ago I would have been blown away. Whilst wonderful, it was just far too crowded in comparison to Margaret River, and you know there was hardly anyone […]
