My favourite thing about summer by the sea is the fact that it doesn't get too hot. I've spent the majority of my life welcoming summer each year with hot, sticky weather with nothing but a public pool to cool off in. Now that I live by the sea, I get to go to my favourite beaches to swim. Most of them are pretty quiet which is a huge bonus!
A couple of days ago, I went for a little drive down the Great Ocean Road to Cumberland River, just outside of Lorne. A couple of my family members were staying the weekend there so I drove my brother down so that he could join in on the fun.
Although it wasn't technically summer when I went, you could feel the anticipation in the air. Summer is not my favourite season. I much prefer the colours and brilliance of early-mid autumn but that doesn't mean that I don't enjoy summer for it's own reasons. I love how healthy I eat in summer. I basically live off fruit and salad when it gets warmer, as well as the occasional quintessential Australian barbecue. I love how social I am, it seems like once December rolls around my calendar just fills up with various events and planned activities. I also just spend more time in general outside enjoying the nice weather. I just really love all of the anticipation around this time of year!
Today I set up up three little wooden Christmas trees I purchased last week and they're sitting on a table in the corner glowing with light and it's making me very happy inside. I've also been listening to this playlist by my friend, Sophie all day!
