Daytrips to the beach. Dinner outside.
Gin and Tonic's replace Negronis.
There are movies to watch under the stars.
It means New Year's Eve and the mad panic of finding something to do or somewhere to go to watch fireworks and celebrate.
It brings the Festival of Sydney and a lot of grown up arts going with friends.
Summer is a holiday whether you go away or not. It is daytrips and exploring outer Sydney and the surrounds because we have the luxury of time.
For us, it is a change in routine that means more family time, as the outside demands vanish for awhile.
In my head, Summer is sunshine but we know that's not true. In NSW there is just as much chance for endless torrential downpours.
Summer is hope and possibility.
“Summertime is always the best of what might be.” ― Charles Bowden
