Yes... it's still stinking hot! So we've been hanging out at local "waterholes", in an effort to keep cool ~ and have loads of fun!
First few pics are from a local Swim Centre, with a waterslide.
Next few are at a friend's pool.
Then we're on excursion with Miss M's class, to Warrawong Sanctuary. The kids got to hold a few lizards, pat a possum and snake (ewww!) and we went for a 1 hour walk through the huge native park... in the 40 degreeC heat (104F)!!! Nice. And I was very lucky and got to carry an 11 year old girl up an enormous hill, because she was on crutches, got down the bottom, but couldn't get back up. Lucky me.
The beach pics were taken last night. It was still about 36 degreesC (96F) after dinner, so we took the kids and Chewy to the beach for an hour. It was absolutely beautiful. The water was lovely. The temperature was just perfect. All up, we all had a splendid time!
There is no end in sight, from this heat wave. It's the longest heat wave, for this time of year, ever recorded. It hasn't dropped under 36 degreesC (96F) for 2 weeks (except at night!) ~ most days have been around 38+ (101F)!!!
