This weekend sees the official end of spring here in the southern hemisphere, which means it’s time to think seriously about spending much more time at the beach. So as we work out how we can pack more sun, surf and sand into our schedule, here’s this week’s quick pick of internet finds. As usual, good things come in threes…
I’ll let you in on a little secret – it’s my birthday today! I’m happily old enough to have learnt to type on a typewriter rather than a computer, and to have been around when Polaroid cameras were new rather than retro.
