Coogee beach with its jetty and ample parkland at Woodman Point in the John Graham Reserve is one of the most beautiful spots in Perth, we think.
The pristine stretch of sandy beach, the clear aquamarine of the sea, the verdant park dotted with BBQ pits… Subhanallah!
There were plenty of people about- resting under the shade, snorkelling, scuba diving, fishing, swimming, BBQ-ing, you name it!
A distinctly meaty aroma permeated the air, from the many pre-Christmas BBQ’s. Some even brought their own BBQ’s- there was even lamb on a portable automated spit!
We brought lamb skewers and lamb ribs. Diced lamb was marinated in yoghurt, rosemary, cumin and coriander powder, salt and pepper and skewered with red and green capsicum. We cheated and bought pre-marinated lamb ribs from the Carousel halal butcher.
Our friends brought tandoori chicken and liver and sausages (which we unfortunately could not stay to eat)...but we did try their delicious biryani rice, potato salad, fresh salad and dessert of homemade “rum balls without the rum, so just balls.”
Happy holidays to all!
