Le Chic En Rose

Diaries of an independent traveller

A few photos from a recent walk in the Whitfords park by the sea (see my previous post here). I made it to the top of the exercise ladder this time, having somehow managed to avoid the entrance on our last visit. No dogs allowed so Monsieur and Winston le Schnoodle waited for me at …

I’m staying a bit closer to home today after Mlle’s adventure in Broome last week (see here for post). We always enjoy a trip out to the Perth Hills on the eastern edge of the Perth metro area but never seem to get out there as often as we’d like. In fact it’s only a …

This week for a change I’m including a post on somewhere I’ve never been to (despite living in Western Australia on and off for 30 years!). Our daughter, Mlle, headed up to Broome in the north west Kimberley Region, for a week’s holiday in August. She was lucky enough to be able to stay with …

The idea being that people could share their own personal experiences on social media using …

Following on from our lovely walk round Elizabeth Quay, thoughts turned to lunch. As I said in last week’s post (see here), the quay is still a work in progress and apart from a couple of pop up kiosks there isn’t much in the way of refreshments there yet. Fortunately the adjacent Barrack Street Jetty …

Elizabeth Quay is a new development in the heart of Perth by the Swan River, built with the intention of bringing the Esplanade area to life. Although blessed with a gorgeous setting on the river and popular with recreational cyclists, walkers and joggers, the area round the river front has been in many respects an …
