Hot, hot, hot.....!!

I took this shot a few weeks ago as we were walking along the Burns Beach track when the temperatures were a little more 'civilized' than they were yesterday....37C  phew!! When things heat up in Perth the many beautiful white sandy beaches are where most folk head to cool off and find some relief.  I was thinking how great it would be if we could trade a few days here and there, not to be greedy just a few lovely hot days for you guys on the other side of the world in the middle of winter, you'd like that wouldn't you...and vice versa, some fresh cool days for us...oh heavens (as Joe Hevron used to say at every opportunity), two hot days and I've gone 'troppo' already.....!! Keep cool... or warm and have a great weekend.....

  7. Well Grace, it is going to be +13˚C here tomorrow and sunny and we are all thrilled - normal is +5. But I could handle a couple or 3 days of +30˚C if I was at the beach. In February when it is around -20˚C here you could post this lovely pic again!!

  8. Well it's a freakishly balmy 20 here in Kansas, where we're visiting my wife's family. No ocean, though, just prairie.

  11. I hope you're not sending it east Grace - 37C is a bit much after our mild Spring.

  17. Yes, to change for a brief moment would be wonderful. To see a bit sunshine would be helpful, it is cloudy an rainy here.

  22. It's hard to imagine it's summer somewhere else. :) The blues in this shot are just fantastic. So many different shades and hues. I love it!

  23. What lovely blues and such a contrast to the rainy greys current here in the San Francisco Bay Area!

  24. Beautiful blues! I think that there are many who would go for the "swap." Our winters are mild with outdoor activities year-round. However, I would trade our hot days of August with someone!

    Bises,

  26. It's always so hard for me to realize that you all are marching into summer while we are bundling up. We still have mild temps here in B'ham and should be grateful for that. Soon enough, it will be too cold to go for photo walks like I'm doing today with a former photo. student.

  28. J'aimerais nager et prendre du soleil dans ce lieu magnifique. J'habite près de la mer mais maintenant chez moi il commence à faire froid.
    J'ai écrit en français parce j'ai lu que tu aimes cette langue.
    Je te souhaite un beau fin de semaine.

  29. I am comforted to see this picture with a beautiful blue sky and sea, in my country have started the winter rains that caused flooding and unfortunately the victims !!!!!!
