A Perth Summer Vacation

Perth Australia

Reclining with my sandy feet on the open window frame of a beach-side bar along the coast of Perth, I sip a glass of cool local wine and indulge in one of the world’s truly most magnificent views.


Beneath me the Indian Ocean greets the pure white sand of Cottesloe Beach. Two young boys paddle at the water’s edge, refusing to relinquish the summer’s day that is already giving itself over to the evening.

The sun is now a disc of deep orange slipping into the ocean and throwing off a golden light against the darkening sky. It is still; the afternoon sea breeze didn’t turn up. Probably, like me it just decided to take a day off.
