Tourists at Home


For the last several weeks we’ve had an extra person in our home. Malo is a French exchange student who lives on Reunion Island. Last Saturday we did the tourist thing and headed a little north of Perth to Lancelin for some and boarding then on to the Pinnacles.

It’s funny how we often forget so many of the attractions in our own areas until we need to show tourists around. Over the past five weeks we’ve seen a fair bit of our own city and surrounds.

What are some of the ‘local attractions’ around you that you only enjoy when visitors drop in?

Below is a handful of the photos I took last Saturday while on our adventure. Click on the images for a closer look.
