Saw this mother helping her baby cool off in the shallows of Myall Lake during the recent heatwave.
Very pretty....looks so peaceful. Reminds me of when mine were babies...my how they grow fast!

@isisweiss @robinwarner @oleary @stepheesue @sarasdadandmom @mariboo @snowy @cleaty @ldpaul Thanks everyone! Linda, it had been around 36-38 degs C for 7 days when I took this photo.
February 12th, 2011  
@ldpaul There was no relief at night, which is the worst part of a heatwave like that. We're lucky being on the ocean; inland it has been getting up to 45 degs in many places.

Wow what a special moment between mother and child. I really hope you got her email so she can have this photo as well. Once again WOW!
February 12th, 2011  
@girlie Is that degrees Celsius? OMG! That would be 113 F.....AWFUL. No wonder you're all rushing to the ocean!
