Summer is coming

I can smell it

How do I tell you what that means to us Aussies??

How do I tell you how it feels to dive under a wave?

How do I tell you how it feels to hold a 4yo's hand, teaching them to avoid bluebottles as they jump through the waves at the edge of this sacred coast.

Xavier knows it.

Damn Straight I can smell it in the air too!

For the 2nd day in a row, I was able to NOT wear my suit jacket. ROCKING!

Soon, the sandals, thongs, and beaded shoes will return!

Haven't forgotten your last two emails - just been awol.

Yes. To live near the ocean is wonderful.

I'm wanting our Summer to be over with. Just too damn hot and dry.

I'm with XL, and I was mentioning to my GF last night that you can tell fall is coming, the days remain hot, but the nights are getting cooler, and by this time next month the leaves will be starting to turn...

Word Verf: bazies. Clinical term of what happens when the wee little ones drive you crazy?

And here, the kiddies are heading back to school. It's strangely comforting to know that it's spring somewhere.

Our summer is at the hottest point, and the end is coming up soon. Watching the videos, bluebottles or no, I want to trade my American winters for Australian summers and learn to surf on Australian waves at endless beaches.

The bit about avoiding bluebottles is the bit that will stick in my mind.

Before I visited Australia I made the mistake of reading up on the native flora and fauna - is there anywhere else in the world that seems so determined to hurt, maim or kill humankind??

I'm assured that you get used to it after a while ...
