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

Fog is basically a low laying cloud. So when somebody says “get your head out of the clouds”,tell them to get off your cloud!
Often foggy in my head these days, and I quite enjoy it!

it feels strange when the temperature drops just a few degrees and I actually feel a little chilly,. Highs are getting up to 30 or 31.Glad you two found some shade.
Yes, those late summer/early fall fluctuations can catch us out. Start in a sweater, switch to a T, then finish in a sweater!
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!!🐾😁
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!
