The Lookout.

It has been quite hot* here lately so mum has been taking us for walks in the evenings when it is cooler.

I stand here on my vantage point and look across the fields to make sure there is no danger in the coming darkness.

I make sure I look in all directions.

Okay, that is enough of that. Lets go and get some supper.

*We know our US friends will consider our weather to be cool, but when our temperature reaches the low 70's, that is hot to us.

Oh, I'd LOVE to go for rambly summer twilight walks with you. Happy summer solstice!

Brian said...

Oh yea, we would like some 70s, been mid 90s here! Have fun you ManCats!

Kea said...

Low 70s sounds absolutely perfect to us, couldn't ask for a better day! It gets very hot and very muggy in the summers here in southern Ontario, Canada, too, into the 90s, even can reach 100+ F with the humidex. But it's all relative and when you're not used to it, yep, low 70s would be hot. Your evening strolls look wonderful, actually.

Happy Summer!

MoMo said...

Ah, low 70s is just purrfect! It's only about 40 here in the evenings. That's too old for this kitty!

Wish I can go on strolls in the fields like you.

MoMo said...

I mead cold, not old. Bad SS!

Cory said...

We know how it is guys...we are just purring that we get in the 70's this week and it would be too much to purr for to hope we'd get in the 80's.

Angel and Kirby said...

We would like to get to 79 at night! It is still in the 90's here at almost 10 pm

Nico and JayJay said...

Eric you are an awesome watchcat - we bet your Mum feels safe with you on the lookout for danger!!!

70's sounds just perfect to us - we've been in the 80's for a few weeks now & that's a little too warm for us!!

Have a happy day!!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Although it is hot here in Sidmouth there is a beautiful sea breeze that takes the edge off the heat. Early evening is lovely though ...

Sparkle said...

I think being a lookout in the evening is better because it looks so much more dramatic!

We love Luna said...

The Monkeys said...

Our Mom prefers the evening walks also, except we're not allowed to go with her like you guys!

The Whiskeratti said...

You are doing a great job of patrolling, Eric!

The Island Cats said...

What a nice spot to lookout, Eric! And all the evil stuff comes out at night, so keep watching!! And you're right, our mom says she considers 70s "pleasant!"

The Taylor CatSSSSS said...

What great evening pictures! You two always have such fun!

Huffle Mawson said...

I'd give anything to have that kind of weather here!

Madi and Mom said...

Good morning Eric and Flynn,
We enjoyed the pictures taken at dusk on your property. Quite lovely indeed. Oh how we would enjoy 70 degrees. We do understand that 70 is hot for you though. What is the average summer temperature for you?
We are expecting 98 here today. In fact it will be above 95 each day this week.

Mom and I thank you for the answers about the horse blankets and the explanation of the phrases in our post today. We love learning new things

our the mom wants to know what she has to do to move where you live - the low 70's is as hot as she can stand!

Hannah and Lucy said...

What a perfect evening to go for a stroll in the fields with your mum.
Did you spy any mousies?

AttieCattie said...

Sammy and Andy said...

Great pictures!!!!!!!

Our mama remembers those wonderful days when she lived in Ireland with the cool temps....and she remembers how they considered anything over 70 as HOT.

It is forecast to be 96F/36C here today....can we all come and visit you for the next 4 months?????? xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Parker said...

OOOoOOOoOOoo - we'd love to live where you do, anything over 71 degrees and the Mom gets pretty crabby!

Kari said...

We love your evening photo's. Your beautiful fur just seems to glisten against the darkening sky. So beautiful.
We really enjoy when you show us photos of your lovely farm and tell us about the beautiful weather.
We get 76F/24.4C at 3 or 4AM! We'll have 110F/ 43.3C today as our high and we are really not in the dog days of summer yet. So what we'll do is nap away the hottest part of the day and dream we're catching mousies with you.

Ginger Jasper said...

Great pictures. I am only allowed out with mum and dad in the day. You loog brilliant playing king of the castle.. Hugs GJ xx

Cats in Trees said...

Enjoying the sweet softness of summer evenings. There's really nothing like it.

TK and Squashies said...

YOu two are so very mancatly! You looks even manlier standing on those rocks face to the horizons.
Has a good nights

Pierro said...

This is so cool. What would your beans do without you? You are a great look out Eric!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Such a difference in how temps are perceived. It depends on what is normal to you. Anything else is too hot or too cold. It's 96 very humid degrees here today and we're sweltering. In winter we're freezing in temps others consider "warm."

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

Eric you are so handsome silhouetted against the twilight sky!

Sagira said...

Looks like you are having a great time on your walk. :)

Fin said...

What fun to see you at Sunset!

Here on the Northern Coast of CA, we feel the same way about the temperatures. 70 degrees is a very hot day.
