Ah, sum­mer - a time to whip out your togs, slap on some sun­screen and re­lax. That is un­less you are in South­land...

So far our sum­mer has con­sisted of grey clouds, low tem­per­a­tures and cold winds. It’s all every­one seems to be talk­ing about.

Don’t let it get you down my fel­low South­landers, be­cause the weather man has promised the sun will come out to­mor­row... well, in Fe­bru­ary any­way.

Luck­ily here in the deep south of New Zealand we are used to the cold. It is an el­e­ment we thrive in.

There is still so much you can do, so don’t let the weather hold you back. Ok so we aren’t go­ing to have the best tans in the coun­try, so what!

We still have some great land­scapes like Mil­ford Sound that can be en­joyed even in the cold pro­vided you bring a rain­coat and scarf.

So don’t let the bad weather get you down. Hold on, be­cause the prom­ise of sum­mer is just around the cor­ner. I hope.
