A funny sort of day..



Another dad and daughter moment captured here 💙 Yesterday we were without electricity while repairs were carried out to the street lines. After spending the morning clearing out the garage, long overdue, we zipped to the harbour for lunch. A little walk before heading home and a few shots to show how crazy the weather was. In the pic above it could almost be a summers day but when looking back the other way below you can clearly see it wasn't :)


Super chilled seagull below.. 'wot canoes!' 


Below, now you get the picture.. winter paddling gear, thick jacket, gloves and hat :) We arrived home to find the electricity back on, yay coffee :) but the weather continued in an erratic fashion for the rest of the afternoon, let's see what today brings.. here's to a happy and healthy Thursday, take care and stay safe..

  3. I'm certainly glad that didn't happen here. It's way too hot to be without electricity right now. A stroll by the water sounds very nice right now.

  4. Our electricity went off yesterday morning for about 1 minute just as I was getting in the shower. I didn't get in because there would be no way to dry my hair! We depend so much on electricity to live. I would like to be out on that kayak, Grace!

  5. Hello Grace,
    Very nice pictures.
    The fathers are active with their children.

    Greetings, Marco

  6. Nice photos, Grace. That person must be cold but still walking in the water. The gull is chilling getting his thoughts together. :)

  8. Dearest Grace,
    Love the paddling photo and children alway stay warm.
    What I can't understand is that someone gears up for winter, yet wades bare footed through the water... Makes me shiver even here!
    Hugs,
    Mariette

    1. Maybe it is an Australian thing where men will be wearing a heavy padded jacket in the cold but still be wearing shorts and thongs (flip flops) on their feet.

  10. I suppose it is necessary maintenance but we rely on electricity for heating. We would have frozen.

  11. You often see people wearing jackets while paddling in our North Sea. It looks odd but it's usually folks who've come to the coast for the day and are determined to have a little paddle whatever the weather.

  12. Hope you are all staying safe over there and don't have any spikes in cases. We were lucky not to lose power last night in yesterday's heavy rain, only internet went.

  13. I have trouble getting into the sea water in Summer, so I admire all those brave people who go into the water in Winter!

  14. Oh, Grace, I would give a ton to walk on the beach. To meet the ocean. And you all. Maybe today I´ll go out to have a beer with my neighbour. A lille treat (if the weather says "OK").

  15. That is a difference, paddling on the water and walking in a wintercoat along the sea. Nothing more changeable than the weather...

  16. I have a motto in Melbourne "Never let the weather stop you doing anything". I think you share the same view Grace.

  17. I think here we walk along the sea in a winter coat. It's cold and rain ...
    Your father / daughter photos reminds me when my daughter was a toddler ... she was everywhere with my husband!
