… is the name of a nifty little coastal hamlet just off the new Indian Ocean Drive. We ducked in there to grab a bite on our way home. A hefty sou’wester was blowing, but the place seemed so quiet and peaceful. The general store come post office come cafe does a friendly steak sandwich and cappuccino. Apparently this used to be the inaccessible place up the north coast where you could go and build a beach shack from corrugated iron and driftwood. Not any more, although you can still see some relics in the sand-dunes. Real estate is just as expensive here now as in the big smoke. It won’t be long before places like Seabird are caught in the urban sprawl.

Oh, this sounds wonderful. We don’t have many unspoilt places like this in the UK any more. And the steak sandwich makes me want to go out and get one immediately!
It was great – the sort of place to which one might retire. Unfortunately boom-town Perth’s suburbs will have swallowed it by then. As long as they keep making steak sandwiches!
