the start of summer
The past month of so has been entirely unphotogenic, filled as it has been with exams, clouds and early nights. The weather gods have been kind with us since though - for the post-exam week we had glorious, sunburn-inducing heat, perfect for the traditional leavers' soaking ritual, bike rides, picnics, Pimms on the pier, cider at the Balgrove Larder Steak Barn, lunch at the Seafood Restaurant, smoothies and a harmonica in the cathedral grounds, beers and smokes in the garden, and much else besides. And when the fog did hit, we sheltered beneath an old parachute in the sand dunes (naturally) and played ridiculous drinking rules during Eurovision. St Andrews, you do summer good.
