Today was just another day. But just another day for me is always quite extraordinary. After days of rain, which I’m not upset about my garden needs the rain, we finally have a sunny day. Most people associate Australia with warm weather. Well let me tell you that is not the case here. Granted it’s a lot warmer than my home state Wisconsin. I compare the winter weather of WA to spring time weather in Wisconsin. So at a mere 14 degrees I welcomed the sunshine. And what do we do when the sun is shining and the birds are singing, we go to the beach. It’s coming into whale season here and I’m very anxious to see the whales in their natural habitat. On the nice days and even the not so nice days we head to the beach and check to see if there are any whales swimming by. Well, my partner also checks the surf he loves to surf. Unfortunately no whales today but I did take a picture of West Beach just to show you how my ordinary day is extraordinary. I’m very lucky that I can see this every single day if I want. Please enjoy and expect lots more ocean pictures in the near future. 20160830_150644


A little about me

Hello everyone! I have decided to start a blog about my everyday life in Australia. I recently moved here from small town USA to live with my boyfriend. I’ve thought about starting a blog for awhile now but didn’t really know what to do. Well I’ve finally decided to give it a go! A little background about me and why I am down under. About a year ago I met my now boy friend on an online game, I know dorky. Well a few months back he came to the USA to meet me and bring me back with him. So here I am living in beautiful WA. I’m waiting on a work visa so I thought why not start a blog to help keep myself busy. Hopefully you all will come back and visit often.
