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.
