We are having a heatwave in parts of Australia right now. We expect it to be hot in the middle of summer, but temperatures have been very high for days now. There are dreadful bushfires in many places and people have lost their homes to raging fires. Let’s hope there is some relief soon. A cool change and some rain would be good.
While we wait all we can do is find ways to keep cool.
The surf would be a good place to be….or a shady place by the river.
Those pelicans must be hot.
But they do get a good view.
If that is all too much, you could just have a slice of watermelon straight from the fridge.
…or a mango.
Summer does have its benefits.
As the sun disappears, look for a cool balcony with a view.
We can smell smoke in the air from fires burning north of the city. It is hard to believe that 2 years ago this week Brisbane city was devastated by floods. Click here to see a post I wrote at the time about the rising water. I did a series of posts about the flooding and the clean up. It was a difficult time.
