Oh how I can relate to hot...Yesterday coming back on the bike, it was 110 degrees (or more??) for over 3 hours. Ouch. Thx for stopping by while I was away. You're an angel. *lovies* (my giveaway is posted too now, btw) :)

Bond said...

Oh to be out at Smith Point right now...the waves pounding the shore....body-surfing in....the salt air....

Dang...now I am sad

I'm in Nevada on vacation, and it's hot as blazes here too!

That first one reminds me of a friend I worked with - he hated hot days!
Nice shots and no words are needed for sure.

Sorry to hear it's been so uncomfortably hot there. Warm is nice; hot is not. Happy WW, Mary.

Odat said...

Great pics...I saw that pic of the toes yesterday and was thinking I'd want to get my toes painted that way!
I love being different.
Peace

I have to say that's one thing I don't miss about living in the city. I lived in a non air conditioned apartment for 33 years. Even had candles melt in my cabinets a couple of times. The city just soaks the heat in an holds on to it. But I ramble. Fun photos... trip down memory lane for me. I do miss the beach...

Gattina said...

I could use some of the heat ! here it's again cold !!

Ivanhoe said...

It was hot in here, too, over the weekend. Then the "cold" front came Monday night and we have just eighties now... Stay cool, teach!

Julia Smith said...

I love that second one from the water point of view, with the painted toenails in the foreground.

And I can definitely feel the heat from these pictures - but not from my weather - it's cool and foggy today. Brigadoon, anyone?

storyteller said...

All look like excellent ways to cool off! Kewl ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

You know it has been a secret dream of mine since I was a kid: to play in an open fire hydrant! I am pretty sure that here in drought-ridden California they would arrest me if I opened one though.

Great series.
