Unlike the northern hemisphere where it could be snowing at Christmas and New Year, in Australia we are usually at the beach during the festive season.
This year was no exception, with New Year’s being a particularly fine day to spend in the sun, sand and surf.
At around this this time of year much of the population across Southeastern Australia heads for the coast. Even during summer the cold currents coming up from Antarctica can keep the water a touch cool on a hot day, but this doesn’t stop everyone from young to old trying to getting wet.
When not in the water, there is plenty of time to play with new toys in the sand, have a nap out of the sun in a shade shelter, or under a beach umbrella.
