Time for a Commercial Break

Woke up the other Saturday morning to find on Facebook that Son No 1 had started his journey home from Florida where he had been working the three weeks prior, missing out on Easter with his family.
Of course, his flight wasn't as direct as that, as he had to make several connections.  I think in the end it took even longer than predicted as he missed one connection!

Son No 2 then arrived a little later, with his dogs Zhaan and Molly, and asked if we wanted to spend the weekend at his holiday home in Lancelin (about 130 km north of Perth), as he had several chores to do there.

OK - so here's the only advertisement this blog has ever had, a shameless plug for my son's property which is available for short term holiday accomodation.

The Facebook page of the house is here, and, if you're ever inclined to visit Lancelin (pop. 600), you can book accomodation here.

People visit Lancelin mainly to go fishing and also to go 4-wheel driving on the large expanse of sand dunes, or go sand boarding there.   You can also visit the spectacular Pinnacles, which is not too far away.

As for us, we had a relaxing weekend with the dogs Zhaan and Molly, while Son No 2 completed his chores.

I also went to fly my drone, as the property has a large backyard adjacent to undeveloped bush.  Plenty of space with few people to bother.

I did lose control of the drone and Son No 2 had to run out into the bush to try and see where it landed whilst I kept it hovering as long as I could.

We did recover it in the end.


  1. I wish I could go to Perth some day. Personally I am not like the rest of the people here, always heading to destinations like Taiwan, Japan or Korea...and China and Hong Kong.

    1. You should come - we're not too far away from you!

  2. I hope everything goes well him. Have a great weekend ahead :)

  3. Thanks Reader's Tales. You, too.

  4. I checked out the FB page and the house looks enticing. I wish I could go and spend some time there!

    1. Hello Romance Reader. I'm glad you stopped by and liked the house. Thank you for commenting.
