Observing from West Cheshire, United Kingdom

Unbelievable..... it looks lovely, and here in the UK it is freezing cold, and gray. Enjoy it while you can, we want the sun back :-//

Thanks for the well wishes, you too Margie.

While you're sunbathing, I'm under the snow in Paris ! You know what Margie : I'm utterly jealous ! ;-)

@Calusarus: It's awful but someone has to do it.

You people have a little bit of everything in your land. The beaches are just as impressive as the snow-covered mountains and green forests of New Zealand. What a way to spend the new year.

Great photo, by the way.

@Luis A. De Jesus R.: Well I am slightly (?!) prejudiced but I think we are a bit spoilt here. :)
It was a magical day, just perfect. Thanks for your comment!
