The MET office issued a level three heatwave warning in England last week. The hottest temperature was recorded at 32 Celsius in Heaththrow, when I told my mom about the warning and how “hot” it was, she laughed. Then again, the last time I was back home in the Philippines – December 2010 (yes, that long ago =( My husband and I chuckled when we heard them mention in the news how “cold” it was in Baguio, a lovely city up in the mountains – it was about 8 degrees Celsius. No, the PAGASA didn’t issue a warning in the area.
Anyway, that heatwave is gone this week. It’s still a bit warm(ish), but we’re lucky down here in the coast, we always have a cool breeze blowing even during the so-called heatwave. Not entirely sure if that sums up our whole summer here in England. If it does, we were lucky we had such glorious weather for two consecutive weeks. My daughter is browner, (though being half-British, she will never be as brown as me). We’ve had as much fun in the sun as we could, like I mentioned, going down into harbour at low-tide to play at a little patch of beach on the sea-bed, in just her knickers. What more can a little girl and little boy want? Here are more photos –
T with her best-friend.
Keeping their little found-treasures from the beach “safe” from the water and yes, that’s my shadow.
Can you see how happy they are?
That look on her face is priceless!
Yes, it is beautiful here.
and this time,
it is a happy sigh.
