Farewell to summer...

Summer is slipping away... and the air in Auckland is fresher again. Humidity here can over around 98 percent at the height of summer but as the temperature is rarely higher than 25 (centigrade) it's rather pleasant.

The sea has been unusually warm this year. Blame La Nina. Or thank her.
The boys have been getting braver and braver in the sea. Now the lunatic two year old thinks he can surf too thanks to a quick lesson from his grandfather. I dress them both in red rash vests (not the grandparents, the boys). It makes them so much easier to spot in the waves.

There might be a few more swims in the coming weeks before the autumnul weather sets in.

And yes I did just post this so that I can use the word autumnul. It is one of life's rather lovely words. Au-tum-nul. There, done.


  1. Not sure I want the autumnal thing to start despite the awfully hot days and nights we've been having! Enjoy the sea while you can.

  2. Hi Ann,

    Looks lovely. First day of Autumn in Tassie was predictably very cold! Emma.

  3. Good idea on the red rash vests. Might as well while they are still young and you can dress them however you like. I'm loving this weather. Autumn is really my favourite. The crisp air is something to look forward to.

  4. love the images and would you believe I worked with a darling girl in dunedin in tourism marketing and autumnal was HER word ... every pic of dunedin over those three months was autumnal ... hee hee hee le xox


Thanks for taking the time to write, Ann x
