The Beach

Whilst many areas in the Northern Hemisphere have snow, we in the Southern Hemisphere are experiencing warm to hot weather with some places experiencing over 40deg C (104F), so one can say many things are melting :)

This past week our eldest son, his wife and their two little ones went to one of the beaches on the East Coast whilst they are on holiday on the East Coast - this is the family that got flooded out on Christmas Day.

Now it's been said many times that Miss E aged 4 is much like me in her mannerisms and ways, and that I will never be dead whilst she is alive :)
This photo refers to me by our eldest son, his wife and her family.

Photos taken with daughter in laws mobile - a Samsung Galaxy Edge 7.





Miss E, aged 4


Master Z aged 2, and his second name - named after my late dad.


Eldest son with his two little ones - isn't the water clear!

  4. You wanted a bunch of Northerners to groan, huh. It's even below 40F here in Tampa this morning. :) I'll wait til it warms up to walk the pups

    1. You live in a warmer area of the USA so when it gets cool in your winter it's ok.

  6. Nice. I was going to remark how clear the water is and you mentioned it too. Some of our beaches have been closed of late, too polluted for swimming. Disgraceful.

    1. Oh yes, I did hear that on the 9 News well before the local ABC news...
      Not good enough in this day and age....hope it's all clear quickly.

  19. Oih ... these little kids are so lovely and cute, and I love a lot the first photo, all in it.
    I hope you don't melt entirely out there in the heat... :) 40 °C sounds a lot of hot.

    1. Thank you.
      Certainly too hot at 40degC, and the temp has been well over that in some places in Australia.
