It feels like summer has finally arrived. This morning was spent at Point Walter on the banks of the Swan River. We met with some old friends and ate sausages in a bun; a classic picnic favourite.

Meanwhile, our two kids with their two kids paddled and played in the river.

As the day warmed up to around 37 degrees, it was time to get in from the suns rays. The rest of today has been spent relaxing quietly at home; as we wait for the cooling Fremantle Doctor” afternoon breeze to bring some relief from the heat.

These are all elements of a traditional Perth summer day. The stuff from which childhood memories are made.
