I’ll never forget my first view of Sydney as the plane came into land, it was December 24th, Christmas Eve, my birthday. The sun shone and the sea sparkled and the white-topped waves crashed on the sandy beaches. I’d made my fantasy a reality! To cut a long story short – Australia became home.
The ritual of Christmas Day became a breakfast of smoked salmon, mangoes, ham, pineapple and presents. The esky is packed with prawns, blue swimmer crabs and champagne and we take off in the boat for our favourite beach or waterway.
Writing this, feeling the sun on my back and listening to the cicadas, I realise just about all my books includes those places where I have spent delicious coastal Christmases.
Come and share a few:
