Not perfect weather for crafting Koalas

In my last post, I was lamenting the lack of summer warmth. It had been a miserable summer but perfect for crafting cosy wool Koalas. We postponed our trip down to Mount Martha on the Mornington Peninsula, as it really wasn’t beach weather. Finally, last Wednesday, beach weather arrived. It was perfect, not too hot but warm enough to make the sea pleasant to swim in. We took Ruby the naughty Pugalier to a dog beach for a swim and watched an amazing sunset.

Today though, I feel like a piece of lettuce left out of the fridge. It is currently 44 Celsius or 111 Fahrenheit. Far too hot for sewing with wool or painting but perfect for reading and drinking iced tea…..

  1. Those photos are so wonderful but/and I’m loving your sentence that you feel like a piece of lettuce left out of the fridge…what a fabulous image and this is fair warning that I may have to use it one day!

    • Yes I do live in Melbourne and it’s very hot today! The photo was at Mount Martha on the Mornington Peninsula. There are actually lots of beaches with huts in Victoria, if only I had one!

  2. Gorgeous photos! Yes, it’s a case of “be careful what you wish for” with this weather… we wanted summer, and here it is! Ruby looks like she’s having a wonderful time!

  3. Looks heavenly Jen . But I know how heat can be so very zapping of ones energy … except if you are Ruby in the shallows playing with new friend 😉
    Time to try out new ice cream flavours 🙂
