Rottnest Island

I’ve always had warm memories of Rottnest island. The last time I visited was many years ago when my sister and brother in law visited Perth for the first time. We had lots of fun then so were excited to go back again, this time with the whole family.

Mummy, I’m a bit scared of going to Rottnest, I can’t swim and neither can Mah Mah!

In the end this little bub and her grandparents didn’t even go near the beach but rested in the shade most of the time. I don’t think Rotto as the locals call it is suitable for the very young and elderly. Lots of hills and not much shade on the beach.

This girl though, had such a glorious day. She is such a water baby, ran into the pristine water in glee. Once she fell face first into the water before I could catch her, but she just headed back in after a momentary shock.

She enjoyed playing on the beach with her cousins so much. Here they are pouring water to fill the moat around the sand castle.

Clean white sand.

Pinky beach. So pretty.

No need for filters when the beach is this beautiful and it’s such a gorgeous day.

She said Mummy and Saitaoha when she saw our shadows 😍.

Haha my sister took this photo and we kept laughing and saying it’s her Bond girl photo.

Bond girl refreshes herself with an ice lolly.

An encounter with the native quokka. We only saw two the whole time we were there, so no quokka selfie 😭.

Gung gung and mah mah were so nice to babysit Saitaomei the entire day whilst I played in the water with Saitaoha.

Colouring at the cafe before our return ferry ride. The ride back was so choppy, I was so glad when we arrived.

A lovely seafood dinner at Kailis, the evening sky was turning pink.

Baby knocks out on the way home.

A tiring but nice family day out.
