Well, Spring arrives on September 1. Winter hasn’t been cold…so much so that I am still in my summer clothes. I live in Queensland, the sunshine state of Australia, where the temps are never as low as those of our southern cousins. Since I arrived back home 13 years ago, I’ve never felt cold — because the 10 years I had living in the USA in a cold climate made an Aussie winter feel quite tame. I wonder sometimes if I should have been born in the USA as I prefer the cold weather to the scorching summers we get here. My preferred time here is Sept – Nov (spring). Though I would say that spring seems to be shorter every year, with summer temperatures coming mid-way through the time.
I took this photo a while back, on the protected side of the island, in the Pumicestone Passage – which runs between the island and the Australian mainland. I loved the pattern on the crest of the incoming swell. Also the delicate bubbles. Their more powerful cousins are on the other side of the island, at Woorim Beach, where I live.
We haven’t seen rain for most of this year, and very little in 2018. There’s a storm blowing in from the ocean right now, but it seems to be all lights, sound and no action. Best I shut down in case of a power outage.
