I decided to start a new fun project this oyear — an Instagram and Facebook page with daily pics and videos of our local beaches, here in Yanchep.

We live by some of the most beautiful and stunning coastline so it’s only fair to share it.


Every morning and afternoon I drive or walk past the beach, either on my way to work or just walking Lucy our Labrador. I love observing the many changing moods of the ocean so the project is just about sharing those and engaging more intentionally with the place in which I live — stopping long enough each day to savour the beauty that is on our doorstep.

It’s not about sexy, top notch photography as it will all be from my iPhone and I won’t be waiting for the perfect moment to click. Rather I’ll take it as I find it which means that some days it will be awesome, spectacular and stunning while other days it will be just plain awesome…and maybe even occasionally just plain.

So if you love the ocean then feel free to follow along. If you wish you lived in Yanchep then this is your chance to do it vicariously…but chances are if you watch for long enough your next stop will be realestate.com.au ?

I started this after being inspired by an Irish guy in Ballybunnion who does exactly the same. I began following his page and found myself intrigued and enjoying the beauty of that small town.

So while it’s just for fun, along the way I know I will be taking time to savour the gift that is our local environment, the people I bump into and to give thanks for the beauty that we have been blessed with.

Here are the links if you would like to join me:


And for those who don’t like social media, webpage — it’s just an Instagram feed.

Maybe you would like to start a similar project of your daily surroundings? Share them with @98five (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) with #Perth365 or #WA365.
