We went to the West Coast Eagles vs. North Melbourne Kangaroos Australian Rules Football Game (footy) yesterday. I don’t really know how to describe Aussie Rules Football besides comparing it to a combination of Soccer, Football, and Rugby (oh, and some of the fights from Ice Hockey). Unfortunately, the stadium didn’t allow “professional” cameras inside, so I was stuck with a point and shoot camera.
On Saturday, we headed about 110km north of Perth to a town called Lancelin. One of the features of Lancelin is its massive sand dunes. What do you do on these sand dunes? You go sandboarding! It is a lot like snowboarding only snow melts when you fall and it gets in your pants… sand doesn’t really work that way. The sand is also really fine and is a disaster for cameras so I didn’t take too many pictures. Lancelin also has amazing powdery white sand beaches which we definitely checked out.
