The temperature's rising.....!

It's hard to believe that Christmas has come around so fast, is it just me or does this year seem to have passed by at the speed of light..? It's been a good year, in a lot of ways it's been a 'miraculous' year for some of my family members, with next year hopefully even better. I took this shot yesterday at Scarborough Beach and it's a scene that will be pretty typical here over Christmas with Perthites flocking down to the beach for barbeques and picnics. They started predicting the weather for Christmas day at 26C, nice..then it went up to 28C, still good..the last I heard was 31C, so really the weather will be what it decides to be on the day and whatever that may be, all will be good!! My son and his new bride have arrived from Sydney to spend Christmas with us which is brilliant, but won't leave me much spare time, so I wish you a wonderful Christmas, I hope Santa brings you exactly what you wished for haha! More than anything keep yourselves safe and I'll catch up next week.....!

  2. Above 800m there's snow even here.

    No sign however in the city and our garden, where Oranges and Lemons are already that ripe to drop.

    Please have you all a blessed Christmas.

  6. What a wonderful place to celebrate Christmas...this is what it might be like in South Florida but here in central Florida it's too cool for me to go swimming!

    We wish for you the most wonderful Christmas ever!

  8. Somehow my being from the northern hemisphere I cannot imagine Christmas on the beach (at least not dressed like that, down coat, scarf, hat, gloves etc. would be more fitting here) but regardless... Christmas is joyful, hoping you enjoy your with your new daughter-in-law!

    The waters look cool and blue!

    Our temps are actually rising at last on the peninsula! Yesterday and today could be considered summer weather!

  20. Bonjour! I have seen your name often on some of my favorite blogs out there. Thank you for following French Girl in Seattle. I will be following you too, and am excited I will be learning more about Perth, Australia. So this is the weather you are having right now, eh? Not too shabby I must say. Joyeux Noël to you and your family. It must be fun to celebrate Christmas with your toes in the sand, protecting your eyes behind sunglasses. Sigh. A bientôt. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  23. Joyeux Noël, à toi, Gracie! Profite bien de la plage et de la chaleur. Ici, ça fait drôle, ces photos. Il fait froid, la neige est bien tombée.
    Mais peu importe la température! Noël, on l'a dans son coeur.
    Sois heureuse!

  37. Merry Christmas, Grace. This year for me has been long and tortuous. And I am sadly expecting more of the same during 2012. The challenge for me, will be to find the gold amongst the dross. And to celebrate it ...

    All the very best with your family and friends over this holiday season.

  39. hee hee...
    No one would be dressed like that here in the San Francisco Bay Area today!
    As «Louis» writes this in mid-afternoon, it is only now 10ºC. The day began with a reading of -2ºC - unusually cold for us.

    Christmas blessings to you!

  40. Great shots. It's odd to think about Christmas in summer but that's one of the learning experiences of blogging.

    Merry Christmas.

    Darryl and Ruth :)

  46. Looks like a definite scorcher you had there. Unlike our rain and hailstone "White Christmas" here in Melbourne.
    IN any case I am sure a good time was had by all...
