Bugger!! why don't these things ever happen to me?????

Seriously though if it felt like it was a perfomance i think i't have been getting off the beach pretty quick smart though, maybe i'd have stopped to pick his clothes up first

There are some strange people going round.....

Thanks for that. I am really looking forward to running out there, just trying to muster up some energy to go out right now, but would prefer the costal path to my usual run.

Cheers all

One other tip for when you're new here- take your mobile phone. I have a terrible sense of direction (I can get lost running on my treadmill.) I had to call my hubby a couple of times, give him a street name and he'd have to check the UBD then give me directions to get home again.

Perth is really safe I think - you wont hear it from the locals because Perth is their only city - so its worse than in the bush by stats go.

And I feel the teenage yoof is maybe more vocal than the UK, but this doesn`t mean that they are dangerous - just full of self confidence.

There are some "free" tours on ours site (free sue) here

so have a look and it might help you get a feel for the beach (this ones trigg)
