The last few days of the year are ticking down and I’m ready to switch off my computer and head outdoors.
Being a British implant, I’ve never really adapted to Christmas in the summer. Twinkling Christmas trees and turkey dinners don’t – in my mind anyway – tally with the sunshine and long, light-filled days. Over the years my husband and I have adopted our own traditions: disappearing to the beach, the bush or the lakes and spending as many hours as we can fishing, hiking, surfing, kayaking and reading.
This year we’re heading to Fiordland. First stop is Lake Monowai and we’ll let the weather and our whims dictate the rest.
Here’s my summer reading list:
Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan.
The Little Friend by Donna Tartt.
Her by Harriet Lane.
Taking on the World by Ellen MacArthur.
Have a wonderful holiday!
