Wow, what a nice city. Looks very Australian on the first few pictures.

Beautiful pics indeed for the city - I love dearly ...

We looked at mountains until dawn, and then when dawn came, it was too pretty for me - there was pink and blue and gold, in the sky, and on icy places, brilliant pink and gold flashes, and the snow was colored too, and I said," Oh," and sighed; and each moment was more beautiful than the one before; and I said, " I love you, Momma." Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.

yeah my title is deceiving. Spring may look like its arrived, but the temps have not! We might finally get up in the 70s and low 80s next week. Its almost June, is that too much to ask???
