Poetry Appreciation

05 Mar

M2 : (Age 6, at Busselton Jetty, reading from a plaque) : “We have drawn a line in the sea, but the sea will do what the sea will do”. What does that mean?
Me : Well, the line in the sea is the jetty. They’ve built the jetty, but they are aware that the sea will do what it wants. If the sea wants to knock it down, it will. If the sea wants to leave it there, it will.

Our Fishing Trip In Lancelin

08 Oct

We went to Lancelin during the school holidays in October. We have high hopes that we will catch some fish at Lancelin jetty. A kind man gave my children two fishing rods. So they were hoping to have a good catch too. But after 3 hours of fishing my family only managed to catch a fish- trumpeter. My husband caught the fish. The kids were quite disappointed.

Indian Ocean Drive, Western Australia

03 Oct

It was time to leave Cervantes. We had seen the Pinnacles, the stromatolites, and enjoyed the oh-so-fabulous meals at the Country Club, but checkout time was 10am. If we drove straight back, we would be at home in time for lunch. But why do that? After all, there was plenty to see along the Indian Ocean Drive.
