the flowers' pollen has been scattered everywhere cough is in the air
on vacation days the sun hits you on the head under the straw hat
les jours de vacances
le soleil tape sur la tête
sous le chapeau de paille
Tourists converge on Nelson from December 26th and Tahunanui (Tahuna) Beach is overrun with those wanting (rightly) to take advantage of the good weather. It goes against my need for solitude when I go to the beach. However, I just have to go a little further and, suddenly, you are no longer in Nelson, but in a wild place, full of native bush. By the time I have crossed this little path I am in another world and I can watch the crowds on the beach from afar, enjoying the good weather.
