Its summer in Perth. Well, not just here, the whole of the southern hemisphere too, but I only live here – the other places can blog about their own summers.
Its getting pretty warm too, as you’d expect – mid to high 30’s already. Now last year I had time to go for walks on the beach in the mornings and was working from home a lot and could enjoy it
This year I have a new (and, sorry old company) much more interesting job, but I have to work in the city so don’t get to enjoy the summer as much during the week. I have to endure it during the day and it’s dark when I get home.
More $ but there are always sacrifices.
Well today as I was coming home, I spotted the clouds were just right for a good sunset.
Yup, it’s one of those random ‘here’s a load of photos’ posts.
Well, I have time off work what do you expect??!!
We’ve had a pretty chilled out week so far, not trying to catch up with friends too much and mostly catching up on family downtime. We’ve bummed around the house, scoffed picnic food 3 days on the trot (well, why wouldn’t you? – we are talking about brie on crackers with prosciutto and a side helping of tearing bread and olive oil, capsicum fetta and sun dried tomatoes and to top it all – dolmades)
Yesterday evening it clouded over and went all grey and dreary. Usually that means that the sunset is nothing special, just a warm glow, often a thin blue line of cloudless horizon for the sun to peak through just before it sets.
Well, last night I thought it was going to do the same, so I stayed in and pottered about a bit.
It’s been a shocker, weather wise, over the last three of four days. A massive winter storm system has swept in off the Indian Ocean unleashing torrential rain and howling gales (upto 130kmh winds) that have relentlessly battered the Perth coast, with Rockingham copping some of the worst of it.
The bad weather means I’ve not been able to get out to get any air or take any photos.
