    Friendships via AFF

    There hasn't been much in the way of meet-ups of just PER people, but we have had several over many years that have been stimulated by having an eastern visitor - particularly one of the mods who has clients in PER. Of course, nothing has happened for the last year and it's likely to be that...

    Nice wines I have drunk recently - Red or White

    Now, now. This was a meet-up of my 1966 school leaving class at the home (in Subi, so not far from you 😛) of one of the guys who has a 1000 bottle cellar that he likes to share with his old school mates once each year about now. It had been happening for about three years prior to 2020 when...

    The view from my "office"

    From a PERfect day on the beach yesterday. It looks like some pretty serious installations in store at this year's Sculpture by the Sea at Cottesloe, opening Friday.

    The view from my "office"

    PJM's day off today. We had been thinking of slipping down to Margaret River yesterday afternoon for today but another tropical low rainy weather system coming S caused a reassessment. So, off to the new PER museum for a few hours. Our first visit since it opened in November, after many years...

    2021 Travel Plans

    Yesterday I received an email from Journey Beyond Rail Expeditions advising that the Indian Pacific is resuming tomorrow. I have a deposit on hold for a cancelled SYD-PER ride back in October 2020. Bit the bullet and booked leaving SYD on 1 December. Snared a QF award seat in J on an A332 on...

    South to Albany

    South-western Australia (effectively SW of a line Geraldton-Southern Cross-Esperance) has the most classically Mediterranean-type climate anywhere. The year is really divided into two seasons: wet, mild winter; dry, warm summer. About 80% of the rain falls between April and October. It is...

    Margaret River and Perth restaurants

    My (long ago) experience of CoCo's is 'commercial with a view'. So, aimed at the tourist market. Hearth (Hearth Restaurant & Lounge Perth) is the schmick, IMO. Not really a drawn-out dego, but the 3-course menu is very good. I'm happy for our friends from an imPERfect location to make the...
