BYO Summer Scenes: Series Introduction
Summer is coming in Sydney, it’s approaching so quickly you can practically smell the scent of it lining the streets. Lighter mornings, longer evenings, and more beach trips than you can shake a stick at. Can I get an amen to that?
The anticipation is palpable. It’s like Christmas Eve that lasts for weeks. I’d say we’ve reached that stage, the it’s-like-starting-a-new-year-in-the-middle-of-the-year stage. The one where summer bucket lists are being drawn up with admirable gusto, road trips are being planned meticulously, and pledges are being made between friends to work out 20 times a week and live off liquidized kale and chia seeds in a last-ditch drastic effort to get that bangin’ beach bod you promised yourself you’d have by now. The stage where eighty per cent of the working day is spent remarking to your colleagues about “how much warmer/brighter/lighter/less cloudy/(insert relevant weather related statement here) it is today,” and how much you hope it’s beach weather at the weekend because you’re “sooo keen to get the tan going early”. (Tip: it probably wont be good weather. In fact there’s probably 20ml of rain forecast to fall exclusively on the Eastern suburbs and Northern beaches throughout Saturday and into Sunday. All good though, Monday will be the hottest day of the millennium. Sods law I think they call it?)
Anyway, after the long slog of winter, I think it’s safe to say that we (as a collective, Sydney-Sider majority,) are ready to swap the fires and doonas for real deal sunshine, the couch for the beach, and the mulled cider for a chilled schooey of Coopers, whilst watching the sun set on one of Sydney’s plethora of rooftop bars. I’m talkin’ summer nights, city lights.
Would it be presumptuous to ask for another amen?
