Check this out! Tonight Dunedin looked totally gorgeous, well nothing new there. Anyway at 6.30 pm this evening, when I raced outside, burning the dinner at the same time, the view on the right was what you could see from Marlow Street in St Kilda in our fair city. I imagine that if you lived on a hill you would have had an even more spectacular sight, but I live on the flat – and I can hear the sea. Not always a comforting thought as the sea eats away the coastline here, and the occasional tsunami threatens, but great for wandering along the beach – when I remember to.
Hopefully it is yet again “a red sky at night – shepherds delight” kind of thing, the weather here has been just great. Lots of holiday time for sitting out in the sun with friends having a quiet wine or a big mug of coffee. Earlier in the evening L and I had been sitting on the deck marvelling at the blue sky and the fact that there was not a breath of wind. Very unusual for the time of year. We headed off to the video shop to get something to watch after Top Model – I have to watch it for tips for my modeling tomorrow, so it is considered swot! Anyway we noted that in Dunedin we are so excited when the weather throws us a gorgeous day that all around the streets there were people whipping out their shorts and singlet tops in excitement that they get to wear their summer clothes for another day before heading back into their puffer jackets. For me, the fact that there is warmth is a big bonus, it makes the paint dry faster between coats. Photos of that project to come later.
