It's been the hottest summer in Perth since 1977 and the hottest in Western Australia on record. Just my luck to be living here this year. I look longingly at what is happening back home in Melbourne, with it being a milder summer than normal. We are excited to see the forecast for Thursday to be under 30 degree's. Below are some photo's I took of the beach flora last weekend on our camping trip down south, when we had some relief from this draining weather.
