The thermometer over our front door (in the shade) has reached 36 Celcius today. It´s still almost 30C at 10 o´clock at night – the sun has gone down behind the hillside and it will be dark within the next few minutes.
As well as making sure to have lots of cool drinks, we´ve spent quite a while in the pool this afternoon, cooling down.
One thing I love about hot, summer nights is the opportunity to have a swim after dark before hopping into bed. I always make sure that there are no outside lights shining from the house and, because we live in the countryside, there is virtually no light pollution.
It´s quite surreal floating about in the pool on your back on an airbed watching the stars twinkling overhead.
Yeah, yeah … I know what you´re thinking – but somebody has to do it!
Thanks for visiting! You might also enjoy these posts:

What a wonderful compliment coming from such a great photographer. I´m honoured – thanks Alex.
The pool looks so inviting! Nice photos!!
Ahh that looks and sounds amazing! It got so hot here all of a sudden this week, so I’ve been seriously wishing I had a pool lately 🙂
You have lovely beaches in Barcelona though, don´t you? But, I guess it´s more convenient to just open the patio door in the bedroom and fall into the pool at bedtime 🙂 It is fantastic – I´m so lucky.
Don´t you know a cute neighbour who would let you have access to his pool at his apartment block? 😉
Yes, there are great beaches! So I’m not too upset 🙂
Must work on the ‘cute neighbor with a pool’…great suggestion!
I do the same – mind you, our pool is not as big as yours!
Oh, it doesn´t matter about the size of the pool – just as long as you get wet!
I bet it´s even hotter where you are, isn´t it, Tanya?
The water looks so fresh and sparkling! Perfect for cooling off… 🙂
Yes, it is – I´m a bit of a fanatic for keeping the water sparkling clean.
In fact – that´s my next job this morning, before Mr Sun gets up! 😉
