Summer in Australia
The apricots and cherries were very good this summer! We had plenty of fruit for Christmas.
We are in Dapto, New South Wales, in the Illawarra of Australia. So far we had a very warm, but not too warm summer, whereas in lots of places of Australia the temperature went well over 40C for days on end this. Where we are, I think the highest temperature so far has been about 37C, and then going quickly down to maybe 35C so that the temperature in our house never went above 30C. When it is very humid, this sometimes feels quite hot. Then we have the ceiling fans going all the time.
With a very balmy temperature and no wind it is very pleasant to romp around in our beautiful Dapto Public Pool! Our Council provides a lot of Public Pools. You can see it here: http://www.wollongong.nsw.gov.au/facilities/beachespools/pages/pools.aspx#gref
For extreme heat days we do have an air conditioning set that is portable. We can set it up in any room that we like to cool. Usually we do not need to set this thing up. Only when the outside temperature goes above 40C we resort to it, for then the inside temperature might go well above 30C and a respite is very welcome! Sometimes the nights are quite hot too. Then of course we cover ourselves only with a sheet. Luckily, the last couple of nights were very much cooler after we have had some extremely hot nights. So we could use our blankets again! To have only 20C feels rather cool!

Snowed in here – your pools look lovely!!
How wonderful to have a pool and cool off. The Southern Highlands had a heat wave and we did not go outside unless we had to.
Now we woke up with 13C and are back to heating. ! Amazing!
This is amazing, Gerard! 🙂
So wonderful…all…the fruits, the skies, the water in the pool, the grass, etc…such vibrant colors!
PS…it is very cold here now. 🙂
Still warm here, Carolyn. 🙂
Yesterday we had thunderstorms and quite a bit of rain.
This morning the air was fresh and clear. It was good to go for a walk. 🙂
Lookiing forward to go to the pool again some time this week.
Hugs and Love,
