and on and on. I can't remember when it was below 30C. All the rock pools have been covered with sand (this pic taken last year), no sea breeze and no sign of it cooling down. I suppose we should be grateful that it isn't as bad as other places all over the world suffering in one way or another. I am - but it's still bloody HOT!!!
Plus my email server is down.
Not really Yellow - the best I could do. I pulled a muscle in my back yesterday and have to lay down with a hot pack and read. I'm finding this book very amusing (it hurts to laugh out loud).
Later this evening: Finished the book, very interesting and enlightening. Very hot today - 99F, 37C (even hotter on my back!)
In other places in Australia they have to cope with crocodiles, snakes & sharks. Here in Yanchep Lagoon we have stingers (jellyfish) small & transparent they can spoil a swim. Lots of super shadows here.
For a while now I have wanted to get seeds of amaranth & couldn't find any. How thrilled I was to be given a LARGE bunch of Vlita & found out it belongs to the amaranth family & is known as palmer amarynth. Find out more here Boiled or steamed, strained & mixed with olive oil, vinegar or lemon. I ate some with hummus I had made. Delicious!
The road to Yanchep Lagoon. Going slowly round the bend!
I have just finished reading 'Still Alice' by Lisa Genova (read a review here). Also reading 'the school of essential ingredients' by Erica Bauermeister & found a reference to 'Lucca' in Italy (just had an email from a friend who has acquired a flat there!)
This little crab kept getting washed back onto the sand. To see more shadows from this world of ours please go here. By the way - is anyone else finding that they can't always see some of the pics on other peoples blogs or is it just me?
