Back on line after last week’s hiatus though my computer is still being a bit slower than I’d like it to be! It needed 2 new RAMS, which the computer tech guy explained was to help it multi task! However since the photos I want to use this week are still on my iPad, I’m having another go at a WordPress app post as it will save me stressing my poor computer trying to upload them all!
Highlighting another delightful spot in the Perth Hills this week, where we celebrated our elder daughter, La Chic Maman’s, birthday the other weekend. Roleys On the Ridge, as its name suggests, sits perched on a rocky cliff in the hillside suburb of Roleystone. Although only about 4o minutes out of the city centre you really feel away from it all here with the native vegetation and quaint country character.
The food was superb as were the accompanying wines and we had a wonderful view across the rolling bushland from the enclosed terrace area. There is an outdoor terrace too but we thought it was easier to mind our two little granddaughters (aged nearly 4 and 19 months) indoors rather than worrying about them trying to clamber over the balcony. The only issue I had was the child friendliness of the outdoor area as the rocks, that the little ones were keen to explore later, dropped right down to an almost sheer cliff on the other side! That didn’t detract from a wonderful lunch however – the desserts were particularly delicious!
Next door to Roleys are a few pretty shops selling amongst other things organic food produce and herbal toiletries. There is also a charming cafe if you just want a quick coffee rather than a full meal. Roleys is only a couple or so kilometres from Araluen Botanic Park, which we visited last week (see here and here for previous posts). It is a wonderful location for a Sunday lunch or celebration meal (they cater for wedding parties too) and the views are priceless!
