It is becoming a bit of a tradition that I injure myself a week before I compete in an event. Last weekend I was kayaking in the ocean and the swell was huge, well it looked enormous to a girl from the bush! I thought I had my timing perfect, there was a break in the waves and I took the opportunity to paddle into the shore as fast as I could. I had made it, my kayak was on the sand! Then before I knew it a wave smashed me, I hit the sand with a thud and the kayak was floating over the top of me.Read More »
Photo Essay: Australia Day at Sandy Cape
We rolled into Sandy Cape Recreational Park in the hope to get a camping spot for the Australia Day long weekend. I said a little prayer “Hail Mary full of grace, please find us a camping space”. And what do you know we got the last site available! Read More »

Climbing Bluff Knoll
To say that I over indulged on Christmas day is an understatement. I like to think of the over eating as carb loading as a few days later I put on my hiking boots and headed for Bluff Knoll.Read More »

Bloomin’ Western Australia
When I think about spring as a child it brings back memories of picnics in the bush, cooking on an open fire and searching for native orchids and other wildflowers. I grew up in a small wheatbelt town which is know as wildflower country.Read More »

4wd Holland Track a Thrilling Outback Adventure
To tell you the truth I was a little nervous about doing the Holland Track. I didn’t really know what to expect. I just knew we would be in a remote part of Western Australia 4wding for 3 days. Thoughts were running through my head like what if the kids get hurt or sick? What if we breakdown and can’t get help? I mean the thought of spending days on end in a car with small children is enough to send anyone into a panic attack. What I didn’t expect was to be intrigued by the pioneer John Holland and his life.
A local’s guide to Perth
I am a Sandgroper, so who better to give you a local guide to Perth. Not sure what a Sandgroper is? It is the affectionate name given to Western Australians as our state is full of sand!

Perth is very laid back, we love getting outdoors and making the most of our glorious weather. In fact, we enjoy more sunshine in Perth than any other city in Australia.Read More »
