bye summer

Autumn, hello. I wish I could welcome you with your cooler mornings, shorter (ish) days and the looming thought of wearing warmer layers again with more gusto but I just can’t. Its official, I’m well and truly a summer girl, happiest in flowing frocks, morning swims chasing the waves, salty hair and ending the day with sandy toes watching the glorious sun set over the Indian Ocean. I haved loved this Summer so much (and have got so used to crazy hot days I now think anything under 30 degrees is slightly chilly!!!!)

This little city of ours really does come alive during the Summer months with beautiful markets such as Salt in Scarborough (it was so gorgeous I can’t wait for the next one), surfers on masse hitting the beaches every afternoon, happy smiley souls everywhere you go, the Fringe festival, twilight plays at the park, fireworks and a general feeling of wishing summer would last forever. All our summer memories have melted into a big old happy memory of adventures, water parks, too many ice creams to count, friends and beaches…always lots of beaches!

Here are some of my favourite moments that have made our third summer here so joyous!

ps: there is a lot of pics so I would suggest you have a cuppa in your hand (or a glass of wine depending on your time zone!)

One thought on “bye summer

  1. I’ve been looking on the internet more than four hours now, but I never seen any type of attention-grabbing blog post just like yours. It is actually delightful worth sufficient in my opinion. In my opinion, if many web masters and bloggers constructed fine written content materials you probably did, the net will most likely be way more effective than everbefore.I am going to book mark this site !! Will really read through once again !! Thanks to your helpful info.
