Winter on the harbour

A long bow, I know, but still officially winter even though by our topsy-turvey reckoning the seasons change next week. We don't go for that solstice muck, but change our seasons by the calendar. I will irritate you northern-hemispherers further by claiming that our weather has been like this for most of August.

Gorgeous photo, Julie. I love the sunshine inside the bow of the boat, and I cracked up over "we don't go for that solstice muck"!

Looks like a friendly winter... I like this photo very much. It was an unforgettable event visiting the famous Sydney Opera House.

Vibrant colors and a perfect sky! I'm not big on the solstice muck either... Mon amie, you are a "hoot!"

Bises,

Sorry to read about your troubles. Hope Kristen is better and those bastards that broke into your home get their comeuppance.
Go with the metaphor of the snap, move forward to blue skies.

Except the week we were there and then it followed us back up here, the wind and the rain but it is warmer.

There sure has been some balmy weather but it comes and goes I find. This morning gorgeous but quite cold now the sun has hidden its face again.

The BBC reported today that the 2011 mean temperature in England for the months of June, July and August is at a 20-year low - 13.4 degrees C. One northern-hemispherer duly irritated.

Good heavens! Meaning 24 hour readings? During this week here in Sydney - the final month of winter - Monday had a high of 23C and a low of about 13C.
