The best seat in the house .....

Last few shots from City Beach on Wednesday and honestly I'm not trying to make you jealous with the blue skies, white sand and cool water of the WA beaches, well perhaps just a little haha! Take comfort from the fact that I am also suffering 'snow envy' and that we still haven't had a drop of rain despite the fact that the weather forecasters have said almost every day for the last week that we will!! Honestly I sometimes think that they 'outsource' the weather report because I'm as sure as the Pope is catholic they can't be looking out the same window as I am!! Anyhoo, this man has found himself a shady tree on the grassy slope, set up his table with all the comforts of home, his esky at the side to keep his drinks and food cool, a bucketload of suncream if that huge bottle on the table is anything to go by, phone, book..yup he's set for the duration! Whatever you are up to today, enjoy.....!

  1. Oh, it is SO beautiful and, yes, I'm jealous! But at least we finally got some sunshine, some warmer temps and the snow is taking a hike!! Hooray! Didn't have to worry about falling on my butt when I took Sam Schnauzer for his walk this afternoon! Halleluiah! Hope you've had a great weekend so far, Grace!

  6. Wow! That guy in the top pic is Mr Orginization Plus !! I'm wondering what he's doing? Reading or maybe checking out his iPhone .

  7. No worries, I love the snow. The beach is fine every now and then. I am actually due for a fix soon, maybe this summer. Wonderful photos!

  8. I mentioned that we saw Sunday In The Park With George on Friday night. Your top photo bears some real resemblance to the painting that inspired the play, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:A_Sunday_on_La_Grande_Jatte,_Georges_Seurat,_1884.jpg.

  10. What a smart man. This is exactly where I would be sitting on that beach... in the shade, enjoying looking at the sun a few feet away. Ahhhh... This is the life. I love the handy cooler too. I wonder if it contains more than a bottle of water?! ;-) Enjoy your gorgeous Australian summer, Grace. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  12. I sit here in Belgrade, watching the rain fall, skies are grey....just like California Dreamin'..."all the leaves are brown and the sky is grey...."

    California Dreamin' or Australia Dreamin'....either is good. Love this wonderfully warm photo, and as Bob said, it does remind me a bit of Sunday on La Grande Jatte.

    I'll be back...I've added you to my list! :<)

  26. He has the right idea, under the shade, and, off the sand!
    I hibernate in this weather, although yesterday was better, and as I type it is sprinkling with rain :)
