What a beautiful weekend we had! The photos don't even do it justice.
Joe took Friday off work so we could enjoy a couple days together along with his sister, Cassie, brother in law, Sean, and one of his best mates, Paul. We drove less than two hours north to one of the most beautiful coastal places that I've ever been, Lancelin.
On our first day, we launched our family speed boat into the bright blue beach water, and got out the wake boards. Despite what you've heard about Aussie waters, there was not a shark in sight.
On our second day in Lancelin, we cranked up some tunes and took Paul's roofless jeep out over the sand dunes. Sand dunes are basically Perth's version of snow, complete with people boarding down them! Then we followed a track out to a reasonably isolated beach, and cruised up the coast for a couple minutes until we found the perfect spot!
And by perfect, I mean perfect. Completely flawless and gorgeous!
The sun was very warm and the sand was equally tingly. I dipped my toes into the ocean to feel the cool crystal clear water, and as we floated and swam about I can't even describe how lovely it felt when the soft, velvety waves brushed passed us.
I'm not one to go swimming at the beach very often, but with water so shallow and clear, I couldn't resist! Australia really does have some of the most beautiful beaches. I felt like we were on holiday in Bora Bora, or some distant island far away from the hustle and bustle of every day life.
If you haven't experienced Lancelin, or simply a Perth summer before, be sure to pop it on your bucket list and come say hello!
