If you are wondering what early morning skies look like before a heat wave, here is an example.
These are yesterday morning's skies before the temperature soared to 43 degrees centigrade on my peninsula.
The patch of water you see on the verandah is all that's left of the night storm after another scorching day.
(Today's morning pre-heat wave skies are on my Greyscale HERE)
before the heat wave feathered cloud beauty brushed with warning
The above photo is the "water bomber" passing over my home headed for a nearby fire.
This is how our heat wave began last Tuesday.
The fire was at Heronswood - an old 1842 homestead + thatched roof cafe.
The homestead was saved but the cafe was guttered.
Photo of the cafe on fire is HERE
Photo of fire - when freeway near my home had to be closed - is HERE.
I like seeing these signs round our peninsula coastline.
Not only do they serve as a warning to respect and care for the area,
but they alert the visitor to bird life.
This sign is at Balnarring Beach on Westernport Bay.
And no. I did not sight a red capped plover.
I viewed a water in action sport this week at Dromana beach.
It was a first for me.
Clearly, going by the number of people watching, it was a first for them too.
The guys on the jet ski seemed to be connected to this high flyer somehow.
Apparently, this sport is called flyboarding
