It’s still technically 10 days until spring but you wouldn’t know it from today’s weather: radiant sunshine, warm (it’s 22°C!). We made the most of it by taking a walk along our usual beach route – not as far as last time, but still 90mins there and back 😅

Today we walked all the way from our local beach to Red Bluff. To actually get across to the south side of the cliff, there were some really steep sections making for an unexpected challenge in the middle of our walk 😅 But exhausted as we now feel, it was totally worth it.
I took this photo last weekend when we went on our regular beach walk. It’s only when I looked back on it that I realised how stunning the light was! It had that real autumnal yellowy glow 😊
Some very dramatic skies about for our regular Sunday beach walk.
It’s been many weeks since we’ve had a day as warm as 24°, but today Melbourne finally delivered! I had a great afternoon walk at the beach. There were loads of dogs there, and I have to say, I love those puppies that haven’t yet learned the social norms of being a dog at the beach. They’re hilarious and cute. There was a black labrador one (not a puppy-puppy, but not a full-grown dog either, if you get my drift) who kept tearing away from his owners to try to get attention from everyone else at the beach, or on one occasion barge into some other dogs' game of fetch, including patiently waiting for their owner to throw the ball… 🤣 Dogs are so great.
A couple of days ago now, but our regular Sunday walk on the beach took place in the vicious cold and got hit by icy rain. On the plus side, the lighting got pretty spectacular. Watching my sister struggle with her umbrella looked like a shot from a movie!
Today Viv and I went on an extended beach walk to soak up this late summery spell. And the beach was definitely the place to be! Packed but still gorgeous. On our way back we decided to eat back all the calories burnt and then some, with ice cream from a new trendy place 🍨
Here we’re only at the very tail end of the weather system that’s brought floods to the eastern seaboard, but it’s still been a gloomy and wet few days. Today’s been the worst – cold, and I got drenched in my 5min walk from work to the train station 😠 Photo from the weekend.
Gizmo has seemed a bit subdued today, especially after Gidget hissed at him when he just wanted to play (twice), but he livened up when he reached the beach. Unfortunately, he got himself so filthy there that he needed a B-A-T-H when we got home… and now he feels traumatised.
🐈 My parents and sister paid me their usual Sunday visit yesterday, and for once, Gidget came out and accepted pets from them! In recent times she’s spent their visits hiding in a cupboard 🙀
🐶 Then my sister, Viv and I walked Gizmo to the beach. In the 28°C weather Gizmo immediately flopped into the water, and then he enjoyed an impromptu conference of little dogs 😅 I know he thinks every walk is amazing, but this one was especially amazing!!
