After Christmas, Aussies head for the beach. We went to Mandurah, less than an hour's drive down south. In the old days, this was as far as most Perth people ever travelled to their beach shack or caravan park. Then they started going to Bali. Now it's coming back into favour and becoming quite smart.
My sister C and brother-in-law P were visiting from England. Together with C and E, we rented adjoining apartments at Seashells in Dolphin Cove. Seashells is right on the beachfront, so you can step out for an early morning swim in the calm and shallow waters of the bay. Just perfect for anyone (like me) who is scared of big waves!
