For her the beach was more than a dream..

 

The expression 'the grass is always greener' could not be more true when it is winter in one half of the world and summer on the other.. well for me anyway :) When I see the magical images of landscapes covered in snow that my fellow photo bloggers in the Northern Hemisphere post I think how wonderful to be there decked out in coats, scarves, gloves and beanies, hurtling snowballs playfully about, building snowmen.. you know what I mean :) and I'm sure for many, not all, the idea of wearing shorts, tee shirts and sunhats, walking or swimming by the sea is just as appealing right now.. ah well, it takes a pandemic to bring us back down to earth and appreciate exactly what we have, at least until we can travel again 😉 Artist unknown but loved the vibrant mural above spotted when in Leederville last week. Happy Monday, take care and stay safe..

  1. Dearest Grace,
    No, please let me have full summer instead of any cold or snow! We were both happiest during the years we lived on Java, Indonesia!
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  3. Wow, quite a colourful one Grace. I do prefer the heat too, 6 years of snow when we lived in Germany were enough for me :)

  5. It looks so cheerful and warm! We have warmed up to -3˚C here this afternoon but no snow at all on the ground. It isn't fun when the wind blows the cold air at you.

  10. She looks very prim and proper gazing out to the sun setting over the sea.
    I know what you mean about the weather. Even Arizona is seeing some winter weather right at the moment.

  13. Oh, Grace, it would be true if real summers were guaranteed here. Some are but 20-25C. And I don´t see us being able to come to Perth anytime soon. The vaccines are unsafe and who knows if they work with the mutations already around.
    But, yes, the murals spreads hope. I miss it all.
    Reminds me of the Hippies-area, the wonderful 70´s 😍💃
