In loving memory of our summer which was finally killed off last night when a rude winter storm hit us with strong winds, driving hard rain and icy South pole temperatures Sad This was taken recently at Struisbaai Harbour near us.
Thanx Willie for the mod on Fifi - she does look prettier - and thank you to every one who voted and commented on her Smile
I feel sorry for people who don't have dogs. I hear they have to pick up their own food if they drop it on the floor Smile

As you leave summer behind we are just hoping we get one this year, although some recent days have been quite warm and sunny up in west Scotland.
This is a nice memory for you during your winter months, Herman.

Now you know what a British Summer feels like Herman, the only difference being our icy winds come from the North Pole and Russia.

I like the simplicity of this; it has a calming effect [it's the morning after the night beforeWink, yes I know I'm old enough to know better, but you only live the once]; anything depicting water has a tendency to sooth my soul.

Afternoon Herman, we just got hit with driving winds and a hail storm that tested our windows. But have to say our Seasons are spot on schedule...1 June is officially winter and thats when it started.... Great capture today Herman, you would be impressed with the 3 metre swells in Granger bay now, just watched a fishing trawler trying to negotiate the entrance to CT harbour, seasick material....

A lovely image Herman, full of the warmth of the sun, we now yearn for. I don't get upset over winter time, looking upon it as time when Mother Nature retreats, to rest and restore herself for the coming year - but, she has been exceptionally tardy this year ... Carol Grin
