So while the Eastern States has been sweltering,
Perth has been having its coldest and wettest February day/s on record.
We've been having an extremely aberrant summer.

Which is lovely, except for my chronic illnesses, which don't find it so lovely.

But today was a rarity. Going to Hillarys on a Saturday afternoon to watch the sunset and grab some gelato, and it wasn't absolutely packed to the gills. What a lovely day though:

Walking along the dunes.

Until we find a path...

Down to the wind-sculpted sand and sea.

Look left, oh no, so many people... (my favourite kind of beach, a mostly empty one)

Look right towards the harbour...

Look for love...

Meander over to the Boat Harbour itself, to enjoy the water and the light.

And then the sunset, not as spectacular as some of others recently, but still perfectly sufficient. And a reminder that the heat will return.
