JULIE JA­COB­SON, NEWS ED­I­TOR

New Zealand Woman’s Weekly - - WEEKLY TRAVEL -

This was taken in 1961 at New Brighton in Christchurch, where I was born. My im­me­di­ate fam­ily later moved to Grey­mouth, then New Ply­mouth, but Christ­mas hol­i­days were of­ten spent at the beach when we went back to visit my grand­par­ents.

We also scat­tered my dad’s ashes there af­ter he died. Even though I’ve trav­elled over­seas of­ten, this photo sums up the quin­tes­sen­tial New Zealand sum­mer for me, spent chas­ing the sun. And those frocks! Pic­tured from left are my grand­mother (with my sis­ter Robin), my mum with me and my grand­mother’s sis­ter.
