Month: February 2014

Our new routine.

Had our first night in the new place and we keep pinching ourselves.

Joie de vie.

My mom used to tell us to capture a mental image so that you remember special moments forever-We started on that stormy summer night when we were picking raspberries in England (remember!?). Tonight’s events definitely made it on the list.

I spy with my little eye...

New digs.

Feeling oh so very lucky! I think we’ll have a great 3 months in this place.

HOME SWEET HOOOOOOME!

Chris and the shrimp.

you never know what's lurking in that perfect water.

We went for a swim this morning in the ocean by our campsite. The water was perfect today so we swam for awhile. We were pretty far out when Chris started shrieking, laughing and hysterically yelling about a shrimp that was attacking him… And sure enough, as he was swimming quickIy
away from me, I saw a streak of red (about the size of your middle finger) paddling after him at a surprisingly fast speed.  Chris is a big guy so he was able to out-swim his petite foe but it was hilarious and so strange. Apparently shrimp are attracted to armpits? I’ve got some Googling to do…

Sun life.

This week has been a whirlwind! We have been living in our tent in a camping Village just outside of Fremantle. Tent life is starting to grow on me but we’re moving into our new place tomorrow! We found an apartment the day we started looking and it’s in the neighbourhood we wanted. I’m still pinching myself because we got so lucky. Can’t wait for our beach life to begin!!! Will post pics soon…

We have had a week of leisure- going out for drinks, hanging out in museums, galleries, and libraries (for the job hunt), and swimming because it’s so HOT!

the glamorous life of a camper.

Freo square with Chess and ping pong tables! We usually see our tenting buddies here.

we walk everywhere with our life in that yellow pack.

our celebratory dinner after securing the apartment.

I still can’t believe that I’m here and that things are going so smoothly. Australia, you have won me over.

24.

Had a fabulous birthday on my favourite beach with beers, cake, and a perfect ocean. l did miss my family and friends though.

Yallingup has to be the best beach that have ever been on. The water is like clear blue gel and l just want to live in it. No wonder people are so happy here if they have Yallingups on their doorstep!

decided to be really unhealthy with Cheezels on my bday - felt sick but worth it,

Beach bday cake.

Had quite the sun hangover if that exists.

l ate a pot of custard Nicole! You would have loved it.

We also made some big life decisions yesterday and I’m feeling really excited and nervous but it feels right.

It was a great end to a fab trip south. We’re driving back to Perth now to start our apartment hunt! Ahhhh!
