RagTagChallenge-Bake

bake

cook (food) by dry heat without direct exposure to a flame,
typically in an oven.

The closest I have to the bake theme is sun bakers

~~~~~

Sun baking on Geelong’s

Eastern Beach

 

…and, on Manly Beach.

Some were preparing for their

day at the beach with

some sunscreen in order that they

would not bake in the sun.

I would really struggle to find any bikini-clad

sun lovers in Victoria this time of year.

However, I as in Switzerland’s Lake Lucerne

I’m sure there would be plenty

soaking up the sun as this group did.

Enjoying summer sun

in Nice,

France

Here Comes the Bride…

…for her beach wedding at Torquay.

Busy Manly beach

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Sizzle

e~~~~~~~

~~~~~

we sizzled in blazing sunshine this week
~~~~~

Although the sun was shining was hardly

sizzling weather at Nice Beach…

 

…however, Manly Beach would certainly

see some sizzle bodies…

 

Loch Ard Gorge was the hottest day of all.

The asphalt in the car park was melting

under a sizzling 44-degree Celsius sun.

The sand was burning through footwear

and note how all beachgoers are hugging

the meagre bit of shade.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Flabby

e~~~~~~~

~~~~~

(of a part of a person’s body) soft,
loose, and fleshy
~~~~~

All labradors I have ever seen have always

had some flabby skin.

 

Some similar images from

my rotund post.

 

I guess I can always dream…of what

it would be like to be slim.

~~~~~

While considered fairly modest swimwear

in the 21st Century…

…it is far more revealing than swimwear

of the 1950s and beyond.

At Manly Beach…

…these girls were applying suntan oil

to exposed parts of their body.

Sun lovers on the French Riviera did not seem

to worry about protecting themselves.

One-Word-Sunday-Seasonal

~~~~~

~~~~~

seasonal

relating to or characteristic of a particular season of the year.

~~~~~

Back in September/October I would have posted

this image as seasonal.

A few years ago the camera club to which I belong

found cheap day return airfares to Sydney.

Even though the christmas season was with us

Manly’s Beach was crowded with sun lovers

trying to escape the early summer heat.

However, there is only one season…

 

…during which these ornaments are…

 

…on display in our house.
