Yesterday, a not so little little bird, pecking away at the dune foliage, told me
that it’s midwinter here at the seaside.
Do you believe him? 😕
This post is in answer to my South African blog friend’s, weekend theme, “A little bird told me.” There will be a new challenge out this weekend. Why not join in too?
Nice shots of a very lovely place.
Thanks so much, Ron. 🙂
I think wintering there would be very enjoyable! Our winters are foggy and cold. Once in a great while we get down to freezing. Never do we swim during the winter where we live. At the coast a little ways away, the weather is pleasant, but the water is cold. 🙂
Yes, winter is the best time of year here, Marsha. I have to admit that it’s even better weather than Florida in winter.
Wow! I’m on my way! 🙂
There’s a bed waiting for you. 🙂
Winter … ???!!! And we have summer … amazing thought really. Great to land in your happy place. Still some brave people in the water … even if winter, I bet your winter is much more warmer than mine is. *smile
Thanks, Viveka. I think our winter is milder than most people imagine. The Indian Ocean is nice and warm too. 🙂
Today it is winter here!
Wrap up warm, Tandy. 🙂
I love this & I love your blog!! It’s a happy place~
Thanks for your lovely comment, Cindy. 🙂

Thanks, Amy. 🙂
Still waiting for Summer . We’ll do our best for you Ad come August !
Well, there’s still time, Poppy, although the long term forecast isn’t very promising. 😕
What ever you do, please don’t do your rain dance at the beginning of August.
I think that this bird is a tease. Either that or has a different sense of location. 😉
Hahaha. I think he was pulling my leg, Imelda. 🙂
That looks like my kind of winter 🙂
Mine too. 🙂
Winter for you is like winter for me – what a glorious life! 😀
I know. We’re so spoilt aren’t we? 😀
It definitely didn’t feel like midwinter when I was there! 😉
Glad you had some warmer weather, TA. Must have been a shock to get back up there. 😦
You may have to stop listening to those birds Sylvia, some of them I suspect are being deliberately misleading.
Hehehe…….I think you may be right, Phil. 😀
Certainly doesn’t look that way… but then where you are you don’t have winter…
That’s the way I like it, bulldog. I had 30 years of Highveld winters, and was glad to get away.
Feels midwinter here too with more rain cold and winds forecast for tomorrow
It’s hardly “Flaming June,” is it? I really don’t envy you the yucky British weather. It had better warm up before we arrive in August.
So far, our summer has been on the cool side and I’m totally happy with that! Hot days and I don’t get along too well.
Well it’s actually not hot here, just a nice mild mid 20’s C. Perfect actually.
Sitting right on 20 C here, so you’re pretty close to perfect as far as I’m concerned. How wonderful for you… but then it is your winter, isn’t it?
I’m jealous 🙂 but Bulldog told me yesterday that he was freezing somewhere down your way!
Bulldog lives about 8 hours drive from us, In the frozen north. 🙂
Your version of winter is much better than London’s.
Yes, I believe so, TBM. Make sure it warms up there before August. 🙂
Great place to be for the ‘winter’ AD 😀
That’s the nice thing about the ocean you have there – always warm 😉
In the rest of the suckheap, jackets and scarves are at the order of the day!!
Yes, I think this is the best climate in the country, except maybe in January and February when it’s really humid.
Sigh… you are doing my head in… it’s officially summer here today and true to form we have thunder and rain… Grrr .
I think a South African midwinter clearly beats a Dutch summer hands down!!!
I’m sure you’re right about that. Hope your weather clears up and warms up soon. 🙂
I always though Durban (you are around Durban, aren’t you Sylvia?) was like Brisbane, but I think you must be warmer – or the sea is, though perhaps our beaches would be as crowded with ‘southerners’ up from Melbourne and Adelaide for a mid-winter break! Incredible.
Thanks, Meredith. We’re on the Indian Ocean, which is very mild. It’s a very popular place especially for the next few weeks when the schools are on holiday. 🙂
Lovely entry for Sidey’s challenge AD. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
Thanks so much, Sonel. 🙂
Yes, in your neck of the woods midwinter is like our late spring 😦
That’s right. I prefer it to your winter. 🙂
