Aaah,.. Summer... that long anticipated stretch of lazy, lingering days, free of responsibility and rife with possibility. It's a time to hunt for insects, master handstands, practice swimming strokes, conquer trees, explore goods and crannies - and make new friends.”
Welcome to our sizzling Summer issue...
It's hard not to be excited...Summer is here, even if it rains - it is more exciting because they're summer storms - electricity courses through the air lending it's metallic aura to the heavy drops of liquid sunshine.
People tend to find it fun to dodge the falling rain and jump the puddles, as steam rises from the roads.
The beach looks more intense and the clouds add an air of artistic exuberance to the landscape.
I actually like the occasional summer storm - maybe I'm just a little bit mad!
This issue we bring you a glimpse into the life of Australia's award-winning actress, Cate Blanchett, as she talks to us about her eclectic acting choices, her husband and children - and how she manages to blend the two most important parts of her life together. Here is a strong woman, making strong decisions about her life and career. Mesmerising.
Then we took an interesting detour to discuss life and work choices with some extremely interesting locals, including Peter Priest, whose amazing journey from his hometown of Noosa to the confronting vista of the Congo, for humanitarian and work makes fascinating reading.
We also introduce you to ‘sea/tree changers' Peter and Lydia, who have ventured from Brisbane to Doonan, to create a new life among the trees for their family, as well as showcasing their internationally-acclaimed German watch collections.
This season our boutiques are showcasing the finest ensembles, shoes, handbags, separates and beachwear... sourced from local and international designers - just for you.
With the gift giving season on-hand, it's the perfect time to visit our beautiful jewellers and art galleries to find that special present for the one you love.
We have also sourced the best food and wines available for the party season, so whether you are dining at home, in one of our many fine restaurants - or entertaining friends and family over the summer season, be sure to check out our wonderful recipes and local producers for inspiration and products.
We wish all our loyal readers, and wonderfully supportive advertisers and contributors, family and friends - a splendid Christmas and a bright and prosperous New Year.
