Spring is here!

Yesterday was our first day of Spring - and it was superb; gorgeous blue and cloudless skies accompanied by pleasantly warm temperatures. Although Brighton jetty here (looking back toward the Arch of Remembrance) seems deserted, on shore we were hard-pressed to find a car park and seating at outdoor cafes as couples, families and singles enjoyed the relief from cold, wet, blustery days. Dogs galore had also been brought out by their owners to appreciate the day!
August was apparently our wettest in 7 years and coldest in a decade, so you may understand our celebratory joy!

We have been through our spring and very hot summer. We are looking forward to fall being here soon. Loved your shot.

Isn't it wonderful when we finally see some long lost sunlight! And to be on the first day of Spring is a super bonus! My peninsula world was similar and again today we have glorious warm sunshine! Amazing! Love this shadowy view of the pier!

Oh wow, we are getting ready for Fall over here.

End of Summer Shadows.
Have a blessed Sunday!

Your photo is wonderful. A very beautiful scene indeed.
It is fast becoming Fall here, with the leaves beginning to fall. Actually sooner than they should, the heat of the Summer is taking its toll on the trees. It has been so hot that the cooler temperatures of Fall will be eagerly welcomed.
Happy Sunday!

Yes it is beautiful but dry up here too. I always feel that in Spring people come out of their homes like rabbits come out of their holes.

I love shots like this and your narrative that reminds me you guys are entering your Spring - how exciting - while I am contemplating one last hot weekend before the cool autumnal mornings start!
