Cottesloe Beach and suburb fun in Northbridge and Subiaco

Oh the joys of WiFi. Being able to write this whilst sitting outside enjoying the sun.
More fun has been had traveling around Perth’s suburbs. We went to Northbridge again for a little wonder. Ate at Nandos and visited the WA museum (free entry). Enjoyed looking at the dinosaur exhibit and seeing various animals some stuffed, some in resin and some in jars.
Subiaco is another suburb we paid a visit. It was coffee central full of little coffee shops.
It wasn’t the warmest of days so we went to ace cinema which on a Tuesday is $10 (in Australia Tuesday is the cheap day to go cinema). We saw Brad Pitts World War Z. Overall it was an enjoyable film with some great zombie moments. the end however was a little disappointing. Glad we didn’t watch it in 3D. That evening we ate at Grill’d chain restaurant specialising in burgers. Which was great. I had a wild West burger whilst Ash had a bean burger. Very tasty and would go to again.
Cottesloe beach!!!
We had great weather on the weekend it was about 23°C the beach was a short walk from Cottesloe station. Blue skies, golden sands and clear blue sea. We took our shoes off straight away and walked along the beach. Ash picked a few shells up on the way and we spotted a jellyfish and the sand that the sea stole back with its tide. Nobody was in the sea apart from a small group of surfers that looked like they were having a lesson.
As our stomachs started grunting we went in search for food. We found a quaint little restaurant called Barchetta. We were given a great table outside overlooking the beach. Our meals cost us about $30 each but the food was really nice and felt we deserved a treat. I had the kangaroo Bolognese and Ash had seafood pizza washed down with a bottle of western Australia red wine.
After filling up we walked further up the coast and cuddled up on a bench just in time to watch the sunset.
