Ask me that 50 years ago and I would say long school holidays and the chance to earn some extra pocket money working with my Mum packing sweets. Seedless grapes were 1/3d a pound (about 6p in today’s money), peaches, strawberries, raspberries, plums and pineapples were easily available and at weekends we would go berry picking for hedgerow fruit for Dad’s homebrew. Those fruits are available all year though you still have to pick your choices with care but we have had success with our home produce and that has to count for something.
Now I’m retired and live close to the beach, which would be lovely in summer but…………
we can’t enjoy it, even if Covid was not a threat, as living in a holiday resort, ours and the ones surrounding us are packed with tourists stuffing their fat faces as they sit on their equally fat backsides with the table manners of chimps. It is not a pleasure at all.
So, what is my favourite thing about Summer? Being completely selfish, it is the coming of October 1st when we get our town back and the tourists go home.
