Cooling down from the heatwave

Despite the lack of rain it has been wonderful to feel as if we have been living aboard the last few weeks, dog walks are only taking place early in the morning or at the end of the day, and a paddle at either end of the day can be so refreshing.













The meadows are now matching the colour of the sand!




It's amazing how the just looking at the colour blue has a cooling effect, hope you are enjoying the weather wherever you are.

  1. Lovely to have an update and beautiful photographs from you! The land here is parched and the sea seems a long way away. However I'll be having a couple of days in Dorset next week and that will help.

  2. It’s hot and humid here Sarah. The humidity is strange to us! Beautiful photos!

  3. Sarah, your photographs are lovely, they just carry me away to the seashore. I love it:)

  4. I can't believe how dry and parched the grass has got in such a short time of hot weather. It seems unusual weather for July when so many holiday makers are usually dodging showers, so it must make a welcome change. I'm just hoping that all the good weather isn't being used up now, so we will get rain when we come over in September. That's because I have cob repairs and exterior decorating scheduled for then!

  5. Love your photos of the sea, especially!

  6. Our hot spell has ended and we are not getting much rain. I hope your garden has not been affected adversely! Here in July many of my hostas become scorched by the hot sun and leaves will start to fall off the trees if we don't get enough rain. The blue sky and ocean breeze must help you feel not so hot when you can get down to the sea.

    1. Likely it hasn't reached that stage yet! The breeze helps, I have been standing in the sun the last two days talking to the public and couldn't have done it without the sea breeze! Sarah x

  7. It does look beautiful. Especially with the aqueduct / railway bridge? marching across the land.

  8. I am glad the sea is not fading away to a straw colour - I am missing my green England.
    I love those tiny fishing boats with the coloured buoys strung around them.
    It must be so nice to dip into the cooling water at the end of the day.

  9. Darling Sarah, I can't believe the reports I'm hearing from blogger and Instagram friends abroad.....the heat you are experiencing is what many of us in the United States have to live with every summer, but it does seem to be getting more extreme. Stay hydrated and keep Tavi cool, which I can see is already in place! Have a lovely summer.

  10. It’s odds-on that the hottest day of the year will be recorded before the end of this month according to Ladbrokes.

    The bookies now make it only a 1/3 chance that the mercury sizzles high enough to set a new record for the hottest day of 2018 during this month.

    And odds are just 2/1 that the all-time temperature record of 38.5C is beaten during the heatwave.

    Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "Mother Nature's generosity with the sunshine is showing no signs of slowing down any time soon, and the odds suggest we could be on course for even more record-breaking temperatures."

    1. It reminds me of the 1970's heatwave and the big poster we had at boarding school urging us not to waste water! Sarah x

  11. Everything is looking beautiful in your part of the world. Activities can only be done first thing or later in the day. Super hot here too. Had hoped for a spot of rain on Friday but nothing materialised. Looking hot for the next week or too as well. Enjoy your summer. B x

  12. Isn't it wonderful to be getting a 'real' summer at long last. I can't remember the last time we had a summer this good. I for one are making the most of it and loving waking up in the morning to wonderful blue skies and sunshine.

    Looks like you live in a lovely area to be able to go for walks along the beach.

  13. Such beautiful pictures! And now that I've visited there I appreciate them even more. Enjoy the warm weather while it lasts!

  14. It is lovely to enjoy walks in warmer weather ... I love autumn and early summer for that...but it seems strange to see how dry the countryside is... Britain is always so green in summer! However your photo of the meadows looking golden is lovely, and dear Tavi... I always wish we had a dog when I see him.

  15. Lovely pics, is that the viaduct from the former Lyme Regis line? I've often wondered where it could be seen.

    1. Hi Philip You were right it was the viaduct at Lyme Regis. We discovered years ago on this walk.https://www.southwestcoastpath.org.uk/walksdb/797/. This time we walked from footpath in Cathole Lane, Uplyme. Sorry haven't had time to read the 76 page report yet!

  16. Love your photos of the early morning walk, while the day is still cool! We have lovely weather here in east Scotland, and not as hot as down south. I'm quite pleased about that! There has been a little rain but not enough to make a difference, just to dampen down the dust! Happy summer days!

  17. If only I could have a refreshing paddle at the end of the day! When I still lived on the Hampshire coast, I would swim in the sea every evening after work - so refreshing! Your photos are, as usual, wonderful - such gorgeous colours and something to look back on in the autumn when, no doubt, we'll all be shivering in jumpers! Love the first and last pics, so rare for the UK!
