Tourist Season is almost here

The only trouble with living in a popular tourist destination is that when tourist season hits, so do the tourists. What for most of the year is our own little tranquil beach suddenly becomes crowded as you will see from the photos I took of Paul as we went down to our little patch of beach for our daily walk.

And the same crowds spoiling our tranquility in the other direction.

As we walk up the beach towards Busselton there’s a few more resorts, so a few more people. But compared to photos we’ve seen of lovely beach destinations in Europe, or even the gorgeous beaches in Perth – we’re very, very spoilt, and consider ourselves soooo lucky. There’s not a day goes past as we walk up the beach that we don’t look at each other and say, “What a pleasure”!
