A couple of weeks ago I was surprised with a little getaway from my husband to Rottnest Island. It’s a haven of white sand and turquoise seas, only a short ferry ride from Perth. We had a day to ourselves, no kids, just a couple of bikes and one whole island of perfect beaches to explore. We spent the day riding from beach to beach, awestruck by our surroundings as we played in the sand and sea. There was one beach in particular that really caught our attention. Little Armstrong Bay. The limestone was so bleached I felt almost as though I was on a beach in the Greek Islands. It was otherworldly. I felt so far away from my life and it’s daily routines. We actually got so caught up in the moment of this slice of paradise that we even missed our ferry back home! As we frantically rode our bikes back to the jetty we made it in the nick of time for the very last ferry that was leaving for the day! It wasn’t headed where we needed to go, but it was close enough, and on the mainland, so we knew it was a blessing. It was the most fun I’ve had in ages. Such an adventure. There was a part of me that was actually a little sad we made our ferry at all ;) I really fell in love with the idea of being stranded on the island ;)

Here are some photos we leisurely snapped throughout the day of this absolutely beautiful and very special place.

With love and gratitude,
