    1. Thanks Linda. Looks like Florida, but it's actually Arizona!! It was taken at Lake Havasu, where the old London Bridge is sited.

      The weather over here in the UK have been quite hot the last few weeks too.

  3. Our goal (now that we're old and retired) is to spend the winter in Florida, where summer pretty much does last forever. Your post looks like our winter! And I love it.

    1. Thanks Jacob :-)) It's a little on the warm side here at the moment, too. Could do with some thunderstorms to clear the air some!!

  5. I left Minnesota 40 years ago and moved to La. I replaced shoveling a path through the snow with shoveling a path though the humid air, but I will never be able to live in the Land of the Frozen Chosen again.

    1. Hi Tim. The weather here in the UK is becoming more extreme by the year. Last year we has the wettest year on record, then the winter lasted much longer than usual, now we have the hottest summer for a decade!!

  8. Beautiful shot. I'm not a super summer heat fan, like it around 20 Celsius, that would be perfect all year round, but with climate change/global warming, well lots of out of the "normal" weather.

    1. Yes, it was purchased by a US oil tycoon. It was dismantled and moved to Arizona between 1967 and 1971.
