Summer 2012

I came across this post from February 2012 – can it really have been 8 years ago when I ws bemoaning the lack of summer here inWellington?
Summer 2020 is not much better,. Elsewhere they have been sweltering in the heat. But how we have loved hose few, brilliant days ….

I choose how I will spend the rest of my life

Summer in New Zealand means sizzling barbecues and salads, sauvignon blanc, swimming at the beach, and long lazy days at the bach or crib – Kiwi for a holiday home.

Well that is certainly what we expect but unfortunately this year it hasn’t materialised.  The site goes on to say:

From December to February, New Zealand is alive with the sound of crickets, and not just the insect variety. As soon as the weather warms up, Kiwis vacate the cities and head to baches, campgrounds and holiday resorts up and down the country.

Christmas is a time for relaxed…
