During the week it was lovely and then the weekend came and we had a major electrical thunderstorm on Friday night. Yes, and i went sailing in it!
I can't describe how much fun i had... i spent most of the time on the bow of the yacht so i had to hold on tightly so i wasnt thrown overboard... rain pelting down on me...thunder and lightning all around. Just awesome. Sooo far out of my comfort zone it wasnt funny... and i guess thats why i liked it so much! Here are some photos i took...
As you can see at the beginning of the race it was quite calm but with grey skies.
Then we were hit by the storm and get drenched.. but still had a fabulous time!
Alarna lost her sailing shoes!
Then today it was a stinker! Quite low humidity but very hot and gusty westerly winds made it very uncomfortable to be outside. Got the washing dried on the line in not time flat though :-) Must be weird from people overseas to see this sorta weather this time of year. I went to the UK for Christmas one year and it snowed on christmas day for me. WOW. Im so used to hot days and swimming.
I swear im not cut out for this heat, born and raised here yet i sometimes think i was born in the wrong country... i have very fair skin, freckle and burn easily and find the heat extremely uncomfortable and draining. I would like to live in Alaska or Scotland i think... where the weather is cooler... i love rainy days lol.
