And here's a past close up of the wires over the bridge

That sun will never fit between those things. Silly sun.

LOL, that means it has to stay here in America, and Australia won't have a sun tomorrow!

Imagine how surprised they were!

Now that I've gotten the silly out of the way, I like this one, Bits. It quite fits a lyric from an old song that I like: And I think it's gonna be alright Yeah, the worst is over now The mornin' sun is shinin' like a red rubber ball

Of course, you're not the type to be catching the morning sun, but we'll ignore that for now. ; )

I think I like that song too, not1word. Oh, and yes, Kamalyn: I like the picture as well.

Speaking of the morning sun: I'm sitting in the morning sun right now, and that isn't a good idea if you're watching pictures on a computer screen. I'll have to come back here after sunset.

Thanks n1w! It was interesting to catch this view. I typically try to get to the bridge itself to get the sunset - like this view and this view, and lots more that I've never posted.) But I'd hung around in the wildlife refuge chasing baby plovers for a bit too long. A happy mistake. Though now seeing it from afar, I wonder how I can stand to stand on the bridge at sunset - how do I not get burned???

(And in spite of the joking, I actually do occasionally get up to see a summer sunrise. But there's no nice photo-worthy spot nearby, so the photos aren't postable.)

Thanks for the link and the liking Norrel! I hope it cools off for you so that you can live inside your house once again :)

Thanks K for sending the sun over, we did get it yesterday, muchly appreciated, but we have sent it on, not sure who was next in line for it. :)

It's nice that you share so well, Dianne. : )

Bits-n-Pieces on July 13, 2010

You're most welcome, Dianne! Looks like it's come back here, but at least the temps aren't quite as bad as they had been.

And n1w - Dianne does share nicely, doesn't she? Especially notable now that she would so much like to keep the sun there to warm things up!

Bits i found it here but it was very shy just a peak. we could do with a bit more warmth, coldest winter for 50 years 22 days below 0c surfing has been great but very bad when you get out the water to get changes. steve
