Today was the first real day of the school holidays and also a public holiday. The temperatures have been hitting the mid-twenties so we thought that was warm enough for a trip to the beach. That is my nutjob family having their first dip in the sea for the season.
We weren't the only ones there. There were dog-walkers and dogs,
other New Zealanders, plus some Tasmanians, Alaskans and Antarcticans.
I resisted taking a dip. But when it is 10 degrees warmer, I'll peel off my tan-prevention outfit and get my new togs (oops, bathers) wet. Along with the Australians.
