Summer is officially here. Even the beach at the weekend was verging on too hot. For some odd reason there was no breeze at all. Even in the shade it was scorchio. By my reckoning, at least 47 plus. It's 40 degrees at 8 am in the morning! Couldn't work out why it seemed so much hotter than last year until I realised that I avoided the beach until August last year! Still, we're struggling through..beats the rain any day.
