We interrupt this blog to bring you an important message….
Yes, if you managed to watch all 2 minutes 33 seconds of that video then I am sure you will have got my message.
We are going on a summer holiday. That’s me, Mrs Bobinoz and Elizabeth.
But hold on Bob, it’s not summer where you are, you are in the middle of winter. How can you have a summer holiday? Are you going abroad?
No, we are staying in Australia. Here’s a clue…
We took ourselves off to Tasmania which was cold, very cold. During the summer, when we booked the holiday, the idea of going to somewhere very cold seemed great. When we got to somewhere that was really cold, it seemed, well, cold.
Here in Australia, of course, the further south you go the colder it gets. You can’t go much further south in Australia than Hobart.
This year for our “winter” holiday we are travelling north, about as far North (almost) as you can go in Australia. We are heading to Darwin for 10 days and the weather is expected to be…
It may be winter here in Australia, but it sure isn’t cold everywhere and it’s hot in Darwin. Better still, Darwin doesn’t really have the four seasons as we know it; there is no spring, summer, autumn and winter.
They just have a “dry season” and a “wet season”. Currently it’s the dry season and it’s hot.
That’s why I’m calling it a summer holiday, even though it’s the middle of winter here.
When I get back, I’ll tell you all about it.
