Sandblasted.....!


Now that's more like it! Talk about a change in the weather! We'll have to make the most of it though because it's a case of here today...gone tomorrow. It wasn't cold, just incredibly windy, 45km/h at times, let me tell you just taking these few shots I had sand in places I haven't had sand for quite a while haha! Seriously the winds were so strong, with hair flying wildly it was a case of point, press the button and hope for the best. The life guards were out, but apart from a few hardy surfies, there was no action on the beach, hard to believe in a few days we'll be back in the high 30C's again, ah well, and just so this post isn't all about the weather..yawn.....
It was wonderful to see on the other side of the marina, along the seawall leading out to the lighthouse, that someone, maybe one of the regulars who fish here, had left a big bowl of milk and dish of food for the many feral cats that call the cracks and crevices along the wall home, poor wee creatures. Hope that you're enjoying your weekend, happy Monday, take care..p.s there were about half a dozen drops of rain, I counted them.....!

  1. When you live in a perpetually sunny and warm climate, the sight of storm clouds is always welcome. You captured a great looking sky in the first shot. I'm glad there are kind people to take care of the cats.

  2. I hate wind! It's windy and cold here this morning! Yuk. Love the 2nd shot - a fine composition and it is nice that someone cares enought to give the little felines a bit of sustenance.

  4. No, I don't like the wind either, but the beach is gorgeous and I do love the wild surf and dramatic clouds! Terrific captures for the day, Grace! And it is good to know that there are those looking out for the kitties!! Hope you have a wonderful week ahead! Enjoy!

  12. Summer's really going out with a bang this year, isn't it?! And call me cruel, but I'd probably have more sympathy for feral cats if they didn't kill native birds and wildlife ...

    1. We are heading towards the 'official' end of summer Cheri, but March can sometimes be a killer month as well, it's not really all over until April for sure!

  14. It sure does look different, that's for sure. Down here, it rained for two days and after one normal day, today it was 20 degrees colder than usual and there is a risk of a frost overnight. The people are dressed like it is the Arctic . . .

  15. Thank you for counting the rain, tons over here during the weekend. Said to be better during the following days. Yes, many cats living in the streets over here as well. Please have a good new week.

  16. Oh, you just made me think of how exciting stormy days could be, when there's just been a stretch of overbaked weather. I hope there aren't too many days to count down:)

  17. You've really been having it hot over there Grace! I adore the second photo and I nearly cried over the milk and food for the cats and I don't even like cats much.
    Seems it was even too windy for kite flying!

  18. A choppy sea to be sure Grace ... Don't our life guards do a great job.

  26. I loved the last couple of cooler days .. I think I actually shivered yesterday! But the tiles were still so warm from the heatwave it was like we had underfloor heating :)
    Only a couple of spits here in the hills too ...
    Hoping for rain soon. Back to warmer weather soon :(
    Lovely pics

  31. I would have been afraid to expose my camera lens to all that flying sand!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I hope your camera is sealed well from the sand, but your photos are GREAT.

  33. This is the best blog for anyone who desires to find out about this topic.
    You

    realize so much its nearly arduous to

    argue with you (not that I really would want…HaHa). You undoubtedly put a
    brand new spin on a subject thats been written about for years.
    Great stuff, just

    nice!

  36. The following time I learn a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as
    this one. I imply, I know it was my option to read, however I

    truly thought youd have one thing interesting
    to say. All I

    hear is a bunch of whining about something that
    you possibly

    can repair when you werent too busy searching for attention.

  39. Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet effective.
    A

    lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and appearance. I must say

    you've done a amazing job with this. Additionally,

    the blog loads extremely fast for me on Internet explorer.
    Outstanding Blog!
