Summer has arrived! This time of year always brings sunshine, swimming and lots of ice cream, slushies, refreshing drinks and fresh fruits! It’s the season of outdoors, travelling, playing and most importantly happiness. Everyone absolutely loves the daytime walks with a large brimmed hat, cool night walks, the long lazy Sundays in a park and most importantly a good old fashioned braai around the pool or a lake or just on your front lawn with friends and family. It’s the season of giving and summer in South Africa makes it so special!
