Other Stuff, Vika

I’m annoyed with the sun.

Where was the sun last week! I wanted glorious sunsets over the Aldinga Beach sands.

I wanted brilliant photos of pelicans and other sea-birds against blue skies.

Of course it flew away. Look at that bit of blue sky teasing me.

What a difference a few days make. It was minus 2 (Celsius) this morning and the day is sunny again, just like it has been every day since we headed home on Wednesday.

The American Sycamore this morning

The American Sycamore this morning … I love this tree! (click on it twice to get a big image)

And here is Vika.



She likes walking in the middle of the road on our way back down the side of our block. Yesterday was the first day she suddenly ran off towards me. I looked up. The neighbour was just driving out of his driveway. Vika is finally learning about cars. She usually just stands still and I have to scoop her up and carry her to the verge.

Have a nice day. 🙂

  1. Dear Christine, so sorry the sun had other plans. Minus 2 is darn cold. I had no idea you had such frigid temperatures either. Maybe this week will be kinds and Mr. Sun comes back? ❤
    Vika is so cute and I'm not even a dog person. 😮

  2. Even without the sun, your beach photos are lovely, Christine – very moody/brooding. They’re in great contrast to the pic of the American sycamore, too. And Vika … well, she’s just a little cutie. 🙂

    • I just found out what type of tree it was a few weeks ago, Barbara. It is only a little one, and I imagine whole stands of them would be wonderful all year round. Even in winter it kept hold of some of its balls. 🙂
