But we know it's winter. It's often under starlight that I head off the boat for yoga practice, and it's dark again well before dinnertime. Mornings are crisp: it was 48F/8C on my way to the studio this morning. It's still subtropical, though... our days are balmy. The sun is at its northernmost point, and the days are markedly shorter.
Although we're just a little over 27 degrees south, the latitude is enough for meaningful seasonal changes compared to our recent years in the tropics. It's a joy to mark the inflection point in the seasons, and think about longer days ahead.
Mairen got into the spirit a week ahead when she caught me looking at sun bread recipes. She was ready to start....NOW!
Fresh from the oven! No, not the solar oven.
