Perth: Busselton Jetty, Blue Boat House, Yallingup & Preston Beach
And this means Hello! I’m back with a new post. Featuring our first group shot of the day at our lovely two-storey Airbnb accommodation.
On a side note, cute Australian Ringneck parrots were spotted hunting for seeds.
Whenever I see a dachshund, I’m reminded of my fatty bom bom at home.
In the middle of winter, there seemed to be a surf instructor teaching young kids. Omg… thinking of the cold already makes me shudder.
Look at them grown-ups gathering around the ice cream counter like kids at Simmo’s Ice Creamery. All eager to taste each other’s ice cream before it’s gone. *shakes head*
This trip, we noticed many different types of birds as compared to kangaroos. It was a little surprising to me especially the Australian Ringneck parrot. I’ve not seen these birds on my previous trip many years back. We were driving along the road and chanced upon a flock of Australian White Ibis. We got lucky and witnessed the migratory season. More birds… more luck!
My 2nd time back at the jetty after many years. It’s still pretty much the same but nevertheless enjoyed the slow breezy stroll. The detailed wall art on the way to the restroom though… had me in awe. I totally stood outside the restroom for a good while to admire the artwork as if I was in a art museum. Imagine the artist’s effort in drawing those intricate lines. *claps claps*
Back home before our trip, we did our research and saw an interesting photo of a row of colourful huts in Preston beach. We were driving and looking around the really small town along the houses in circles for about half an hour and couldn’t find the huts. The joke is, we finally found out that the colourful huts along Preston beach is in the UK… LOL. The consolation is, it’s along the houses at Preston beach where we finally see wild kangaroos upclose.
Blue Boat House (Crawley Edge Boatshed)
The next day we visited the Blue Boat House at the Swan River. Famously photographed in social media platforms. A queue is expected at this Instagram worthy place so be prepared to queue a little. Managed to take some postcard looking photos thanks to the great weather.
Our next Airbnb accommodation with a beach house theme to stay for the rest of the nights was also really lovely.
Ending off the post with a sneek peak to the next post which would wrap up our Perth trip. Teaser photo below. Stay tuned!
