We're having a heatwave
a tropical heatwave,
the temperature's rising,
it isn't surprising ... *

...that everyone's off to the beach!

Days of dazzling light and sizzling heat

Seaweed, a giant comma on the sand

Bliss for little kids

And not so little kids

Despite this being the final week of school holidays, the Main Beach in Betty's Bay offered plenty of open space

Crystal clear water, warm for a change.  We're tough in this town, the sea can be freezing cold even at the height of summer

And some of us are happy to take a short walk, relax and drink in the beauty
and the fresh, salty air.  This is only the second time my dear husband has been able to walk on the beach, albeit with two sticks.  The knee op can't come quickly enough.

It makes me wish for summer to come here to the States. Today was gray, overcast with occasional rain and the temps in the high 40s F. I already got plans to spend a long weekend at a beach here in North Carolina in April. Hope that the weather is as nice as what you're having now.

Oh, it's so heavenly over there. I was day-dreaming about winning the lottery the other day and decided that "when" I win, South Africa will be my first port of call!

See you soon!
