I love the winter up here in Qld. The winter sun is gorgeous and the westerlies clear and stunning. This time of year is the compromise to such a magnificent bulk of the year. Having had some reprieve on the water over the weekend it seemed somehow the overnight 30 degree temp was strangely manageable. Even the normal early morning freshness was missing as I stepped outside. Watching the sun lazily come to life it appeared to be satisfied with its work. The early light shimmered some lovely reflections across the calm ocean offering no help to the mugginess on the land. The only reminder of change is the pushing back of the suns arrival, already a full half hour delayed from the summer solstice.
