Hallet cove again in late winter!!! 25th July 2009

Winter days in Adelaide are usually cold and gloomy and grey. Temperatures can range from 3-20 degrees. Rainfall is the highest during winter, almost everyday is a rainy day, however, the rainfall here is very much different from Malaysia as the clouds cry whenever they like to, and the funny part is they cry for a while, sometimes they weep only sometimes burst into tears very suddenly then stop. But nothing like our Malaysia tropical storm, rains for hours like pouring water from above or for days continuously. The weather is worse if it’s windy. The wind kills!!! You felt each gust of wind penetrate your skin and chill your bone!!! You get very little sun shine and the day gets dark early. So winter days are Soooooooooooo sien, hid in the room, most of the time u felt like hiding under the warm Quilt and zzzz away. Your hands are freezing even by just holding the mouse, and your legs are numb even if u wore thick woolen socks. Basically, if i’m an animal, i would go hibernate, lol.

Yet 25th July was a bright sunny day, just felt like being activated by the sunshine. Just cant resist the temptation to go out somewhere and get some vitamin D, haha. The weather and temperature is just nice!!! So, i invited my 2 housemates to come along with me to my favourite spot in Adelaide – Hallet Cove, hehe, i even asked them to jog. They too felt like getting active, but not in the mood for jogging, so we ended up strolling along the cool breeze under the lovely sunshine!!! Trust me, you’ll LOVE the sun so much during the winter!!!

Flowers, flowers everywhere as it’s getting a bit hotter towards the end of winter. Some flowers were already in bloom. The lovely flowers make everywhere, anywhere a beautiful sight!!! Saw this sakura like trees, not sure it’s real sakura or the almond tree blossom which looks very identical to me.

As i mentioned above, winter get the most rain throughout the whole year, thus when there’s more sunshine, everywhere is in lush greeennnnnnnnnnnnn!!! Very pretty!!!

Hallet cove just looked so different with the green landscape!!! With yellow tiny flowers everywhere in full bloom!!! My last visit during December was all dry arid colours. Totally different!!!

Blue blue clear sky……, you’ll only get these during spring and summer mostly. It’s so peaceful to the eyes!!! Capture this photo with the little aeroplane, haha. Here you’ll see planes and sailing boat on a nice day!!!
Sook Xia, u’ll love this place since you like to see air planes take off. Even better off Glenelg, wahaha.

This time, we went down to the rocky beach. It’s such a nice place!!! This beach holds some funny geographical formation, ridges and rocks that have geographical significance.
