Fogust

You wait all summer for it to be summer, and then when it is (at last!) Fogust pops up! To be fair, we had quite a lot of Fogust in July, when July wasn’t being March. Is it safe to say by the time this is posted, we’ll be back to full on summer? One can hope…

Sea views? The ocean is there…

Yesterday afternoon was a warm and sunny one, so Scout and I dressed appropriately for the weather – sunblock and pants for me, fur coat for her (what was she thinking?) – and off we ambled about town, looking good and looking for a shady spot to sit and keep looking good.

“Yes, I look good, but if you’re done, I’m heading under that bench behind you!”

With the sun high, if not quite at the midday zenith of high summer, empty shade was in short supply, so we settled for a favourite spot, a small platform in front of the inner harbour. Scout, quite sensibly, sought the shade under the bench I was sitting on, and wouldn’t move over to let me under.

I see shade here

We lasted about ten minutes before the relative heat got to me, protected though I was by sunblock, sunglasses, a baseball cap and the aforementioned good looks. We headed home, almost wishing we’d get a short spell of Fogust to break the brief warm spell. Be careful what you almost wish for…

A tad chilly…

I’m off to put on an extra layer. Thanks for reading, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I am a would be outdoorsman - that is if I had more time, skills and knowledge. When I can, I love being outdoors, just camping, hiking, snowboarding, xc skiing, snowshoeing, paddling a canoe or trying something new. What I lack in ability, I make up for in enthusiasm and having a go. I'd never really survive for long out there in the wild, but I enjoy pretending I could if I had to...

  1. I’m envious of your chilly weather and wonderful foggy sea views!! Looks like it’s going to be close to 90 degrees tomorrow and no matter what the temps are by the end of the week I’m switching to hoodies and pumpkin spice lattes. Which means I’ll look as hot as poor Scout who looks like she’d appreciate borrowing your sunglasses. Another great sports weekend between Kane and college football in Ireland and looking at Everton’s schedule this week, you may want to hide under that bench with Scout all week!!🐾😁

    1. 90 degrees and a hoodie? That’s commitment to wanting the fall!
      We’re on a daily temperature roller coaster, switching from fog to sun to fog – never gets too hot though, only relatively so…
      Oh, Everton – so close to a win! Good thing Liverpool is off to a slow start, haha! Could be a long week… Well played, Kane!
      Enjoy your week!
