SkyWatch Friday #48 ~ More Blue

Haida Gwaii has a coastal temperate climate which in our case means up to 168 inches of rain a year. So when we get hot (25*C) temperatures and boring clear blue skies two things happen~enjoyment (which is the focus of this post) and construction (the focus of next Tuesdays post).
This is the east coast of Haida Gwaii and the ocean has looked like this everyday for two weeks!We get up to 24 foot tides twice a day so you head for a swim when the tide is coming in as it is warmed by the sun baked sands. That's me in the white, I swim daily!

Even the gulls were enjoying the beautiful weather and bathing in the fresh water creek at the edge of the ocean.

There is no one on the beaches except you and your reflection!

Even the flowers are happy!

Click on any of the photos for better detail and enjoy the sunshine!

For more great skies from around the world why not join us a SkyWatch Friday.

Very blue... same down south on Vancouver Island. I miss the clouds! I don't know how people in 'blue sky day' climates can stand it. Nice temps but visually uninspiring.

Have fun swimming! Does it really warm up that much?

Very lovely! Thanks for this touch of summer.

Beautiful. The views are so fascinating.

How wonderful - sun, sea warm enough to swim in, and sand to eat in your sandwiches. Lovely shots, beautiful setting.

Great shots...it looks like pure enjoyment to me as we have no ocean in Ohio...the last shot is especially beautiful...

A real summer paradise then. It´s easy to think that it lasts forever when the weather continues like that for a long time.

Lovely light blue skies and so relaxing.

I know a little about West coast weather, so I enjoyed this entire post with a big smile on my face! Loved your photos and notes!

Lovely photos, the first one looks like the ship is an iceberg, now that would really be incongruous!

well looks like a peaceful and lovely time for you and your reflection. I like the photo of the columbines with the world behind it.

Beautiful, especially the last one with the flowers in the foreground.

I am sorry it's taken me so long to catch up and get around to seeing your Sky Watch...

I could just do with a good walk on a beach... I rarely get them.
