Cooling Off At The Beach!

 It was another very hot day here yesterday. Our cooling system died last Saturday after a power surge. 
The technicians were supposed to come yesterday 
but it was cancelled due to storms coming. 
We still don't know when they will come! 
We headed off to Altona Beach about 6pm for a swim.
Well, the boys swam. I didn't!
 Some ball fun was had. That's Callum with Austin.
 It was a stormy looking sky.
 
 We could see lightening way over the other side of the bay.
 
I managed to get a photo of this bolt of lightening.

We finished off the night eating fish and chips in the park. 
It was a bit too windy on the beach.
