Picture Perfect B&B – Bedfordale

March 2018

We’ve discovered a B&B just an hour’s drive from home which lives up to its name – Picture Perfect B&B (in Bedfordale) with┬álocal attractions including Churchman Brook Dam, Wungong Dam and the Last Drop Elizabethan Pub.

The pub was our first stop with Millie constantly on the look out for food!

‘OK’ Command just issued!

Although the weather was less than ideal, the accommodation more than made up for that and the grounds were a magnet for birds and kangaroos. Can’t wait to go back sometime soon. They don’t normally accept dogs, but because Millie was so well behaved they made an exception for her.

I can thoroughly recommend this B&B for anyone that would like to get out of the city for a day or two to recharge their batteries.

Canning River Regional Park

Sunday 30 September, 2017
We had such a lovely walk after discovering Canning River Regional Park for the first time last week, we decided to go again on a different walking trail. Spring flowers were in abundance so here are a few more to add to the collection from the week before. I apologise for my lack of botanical knowledge – I have no idea what the names of the flowers are!

 

Sunday 24 September, 2017
I have lived in Perth for eight and a half years, and visited Canning River Regional Park for the first time today. The weather for this long weekend was dismal, but Sunday started fairly bright and dry so we decided to risk it and took a 20 minute drive to check out this park on the advice of a friend. And we were not disappointed. It was lush and green from all the recent rainfall and many areas were saturated with water which in the summer months would probably be dry and baked hard. So we were lucky enough to see it at its best in terms of the wildlife that the conditions attracted.

We took Millie the dog (pictured below in the car, anxious to be let out to explore!); dogs are welcome on a lead and it was nice for her to enjoy different smells for a change, although this resulted in multiple stops for more sniffing opportunities! Canning River Cafe is welcome at the end of the walk for coffee/tea and cake. We timed our walk perfectly as it started to rain just as we got to the Cafe!
