  1. Summer is amazing. I love the smell of the fresh ocean breeze, or freshly cut lawn. I love the happy vibe that summer brings. I love eating ice-cream and sipping on ice cold juice. Summer is my favourite season.

  2. Summer time is holiday time, quality time with family, fun in the sun, swim and lots and lots of ice cream.

  3. I love the heat of the sun in the morning… it cheers my up and starts my day off perfectly

  4. Summer time means fun in the sun. Long walks on the beach & sipping cocktails. Summer is the season I fall in love with! My entire menu changes … more easy going casual salads so that the chef has more time to enjoy an ice cold cider or
    an ice cream cone!

  5. The fact that i can express myself fully with my clothing and the length of time ity is to be out!

  6. No doubt cold creamy ice-cream and milkshakes have to be top of my chart for hot summer days. Making my own flavor combinations would be amazing, I could even be sneaky and add some liqueurs for extra special occasions:)

  7. My favourite aspect of summer are long hot evenings in the sun with a chilled glass of wine, friends visiting and then a walk on the beach to round things off. Would have to finish off with home made ice-cream but that goes without saying.

  8. My favourite aspect of summer is the fact that its a versetile season, it could be cold and hot. It rains and I stay cozy indoors. When its hot I will be out and about dressed in shorts and summer dresses as well as swimming.I could indulge in my fave dessert and ice creams throughout the day.

  9. that the sun is sometimes shining at 4.30am in the morning and it indicates rise and shire with the chirping of the birds

  10. Early summer mornings in the Boland….throwing the windows open, sitting on the stoep, breathing in the new day.

  19. I love summer. Always have. As a child, I loved the warmth and the freedom and the fireflies. As a teenager, I loved the freedom from school and the long, lazy days spent by the pool. In my youth, summer always symbolized freedom. Summer is freeing. There is more time (longer days!) and more happiness (how hard it is for me to be sad when the sun is shining!). There is tanned skin and sun-kissed hair. There is warmth and joy and a slowness that calms everyone just a little bit. Summer is Time for an adventure/ time to relax. Time for ice cream and frozen yogurt, night walks after the sun goes down, flip flops and bare feet, sun rises and sun sets, afternoon naps, watermelon and strawberries and blueberries, tank tops, sun dresses.. I Live in a bathing suit, paint my nails bright orange and bask in the sun! Neon colors, outdoor concerts, beach chairs, iced coffee, sand in my toes, 8pm runs, and big sunglasses! There’s nothing quite like summertime foods to remind me of how great summer is. There are certain things I love to eat during the summer that I rarely have any other time of the year — watermelon, corn on the cob, and fruit salad being three of my favourite. Life’s too short not to enjoy the beautiful season of summer.
