Wahoo – it’s a celebration – wahoo!

Sum, sum, summertime – she has finally found her way West and arrived with vengeance.

We didn’t want to get too excited yesterday when she made her first appearance but did enjoy a run on the beach with mainly blue skies and warming temperatures.

Today however was a different story.  Beautiful start to the day and beautifully warm right from the word go.

There were heaps off surfers out off the rocks although they were starting to head in by the time we made it out to watch.

fun in the creek nine mile beach greymouth

In the summertime when the weather is hot
You can stretch right up and touch the sky
When the weather’s fine
You got playing, you got playing on your mind
Have a swim, have a run
Go out and see what you can find

There was fun and amusement with the boys enjoying a play in the creek.

    Summer has finally reached you and you’re not out there in a bikini swimming.?? What do you call summer.?.. here we run from shade to shade at the moment, just so we don’t melt… with temps running up into the 40’s (C) I’m beginning to wonder if I haven’t died and gone to hell….

      make the most of it I say Bulldog. We had a cold wet end to Spring and start of summer so it has been lovely to see the sunshine the last couple of days. As for bikini – no way! LOL Was thinking of you as I wrote this post – think you may have been one of my first followers – this was/is post 200 wahoo! Stay cool…..

  2. Looks like fun. Might snow here tomorrow. 🙂 –Curt
