The Grass is alway Greener on the Other Side of the Fence!

What's this man doing in shorts and short sleeves? Doesn't he know its winter?

As Brad hikes he gives us a nice video image of what he's seeing. The view is of Poor Knights Islands and definitely looks spectacular in all directions. In fact, the entire Tutukaka Coast is full of things to do and see. Brad has selected an amazing country to spend his winter. And, it's warm there.

It's cold on Whidbey Island. As I follow Brad's travels on the Te Araroa Trail in New Zealand and see in his photos the sun and surfing and kayaking and short sleeved shirts and shorts, I do have to tamp down my jealously. I want a sunny day in the 40's, never mind the 60's. I'm beginning to understand the
snowbirds (a term thought to come from the Snow Bird song by Anne Murray), so sing along to pretend, if you're cold like me today, that it's really warm and sunny. The National Weather Service reports Langley weather to be cold and more cold. Our nights will be in the low 30's and high 20's this week, with the day time temperatures maxing out at 43 later in the week.
