Daylight savings wrapped up over the Easter weekend here in Australia, and now that I’ve had a couple of weeks to come to terms with the shorter afternoons, I am making the most of the cooler weather and the extra hour in the morning.
I am an out-and-out summer person but I do like this time of year. The beach is reclaimed by the familiar faces of the locals, the sand isn’t littered with rubbish and the cooler water and regular swell rids the line up of the learner surfers and weekend warriors who are only in it for the suntan.
The mornings have been a mixed bag of late. Some days I reluctantly slink out of bed only to get down to the beach to be confronted with an overcast display of various shades of grey. Other days I park the bike, go for a swim and spend the next half an hour watching mother nature put on a light show.
Mornings are my favourite time of day. Watching the smiles of the regular swimmers, yogis, beach runners and photographers reminds me that not everything in this world is doom and gloom. In a technological age where we have everything at our fingertips, it is refreshing to see that the simple pleasures still have a place in the world.
