This could be anywhere in the world
This could be taken from the beach of any tropical island retreat.
It could be taken at any mainland resort anywhere in the world, whist lazing away the hours with a good book and a long, cool drink.
But it’s not.
It’s taken from my back yard in Brisbane where we’re in the grip of winter, and the wind is lowering the temperature from 19 degrees centigrade to a ‘feels like’ 12.
Still, in a sheltered corner, I’m having a nice cup of tea and reading a good book on what could be called a pretend holiday.
At least for the afternoon, anyway.
