This is based on a book by my GGGrandfather Edwin Rainbow. He was a journalist, author and Registrar of Birth and Deaths in Coventry, UK at the turn of the last century. He wrote this book in 1916 as a turn by turn description of several walks through his (and my) home city. It's like a time capsule as he describes elegant tree-lined avenues, the tram system and industries of the time. Most of the city was destroyed in WWII and it's fascinating to read what's still there and what's long forgotten.
The places on the map are where I lived and specifically where I spent the bulk of my time. I was truly a small town girl, even though I was living 14,000 miles away from Texas. Naga is my home. The Filipino people are my family. I never forget them. This was a great way to remember my roots.
This map illustrates some of Perth's most beautiful beaches and some of the activities the local inhabitants get up to! From left to right, we head from the 'clothing optional' beach and army base at Swanbourne, to the beautiful old Art Deco Surf Life Saving Club at Cottesloe, where the tourists and fashionistas frolic in the surf and eat at the local cafes. Finally we pass through scenic Mosman Beach and end up chilling with the dog walkers and kite surfers at Leighton and Port Beach.
