Yesterday, the first of September was officially the first day of Spring for us in New Zealand.

The day broke crisp and clear – 5 degrees with a real feel of 2, so what better way to mark it than with a brisk morning walk with the dogs along the Waihopai Walkway, and back home through Queens Park.
