Summer days

We are in the middle of a heat wave here in the south west of Western Australia - average temperatures 36-40 degrees CelsiusMy computer doesn't want to play today (maybe it has decided that 40 degrees Celsius is far too hot to work in - I tend to agree), so for this week I am just posting some recent cooling water photos from along our estuary.









Thank you so much for stopping by. I value your comments and look forward to hearing from you. I will try to visit your blogs in return. Have a wonderful week. I hope next week my computer will play nice!

Sadly on Sunday a bush-fire started up in an area adjacent to January's terrible bushfires. (Western Australia is burning) 
Below is a pic I took from along our river walk. Thankfully today, Tuesday, the bushfire has been downgraded to "watch and act". For more information please click here - DFES- Alerts and Warnings

  2. Lovely photos of summer. There's talk of snow around here, so I confess I'm jealous!

  5. Love your cooling water photos Jill. I love summer but I do not like it when the heat gets anything over 30 degrees. We have high humidity here in Queensland which makes it even worse. On the plus side I do live near the beach and normally we get a lovely cooling sea breeze in the late afternoon or a thunderstorm with rain to cool things off. It's difficult to judge which is worse - humidity or dry heat.

  11. The bushfires have been so bad this year, I'm glad the latest has been downgraded. I love water photos, it's been very hot in Townsville too and the humidity is extreme.

  13. You guys are officially in summer, so, I understand the heat. Here in California, is winter but we are having a heat wave too. We are about 28 degrees Celsius (which can be considered perfect weather). So, it is a beach going kind of weekend.

  14. Please, please send us some heat! Without factoring in the windchill, we're in the single digits here this weekend.
    I love your cooling photos. Very calming. Hope your computer is working better now.
