The weather has been fantastic for the past week or so, and after our trip to Rotto on Saturday, Alan was keen to get the jet ski out and give it a good thrashing around while the weather remained hot and sunny.
So yesterday we went to fuel it up, and headed to Kwinana Beach, a short five minute drive away. It was a nice warm sunny afternoon, and after the initial shock of plunging into the water, the sea was not too cold, although it was probably worse for Alan as he did not have a wetsuit!
Unfortunately it was a bit windy, and it was coming in from the north-west, which made the usually sheltered bay a bit choppy. This was great fun for me, but Alan, who has never been on a jet ski before, struggled a bit at first. He picked it up pretty quickly though, and was soon flying around the bay with a huge grin on his face.
Afterwards we gave the ski a quick wash off, and warmed up in the spa with a couple of beers.
Winter in Perth – wonderful!
