Winter Begins

Here, at last ... Winter! Last night we observed the winter solstice and so today is the first full day of winter. Here at the Island we always welcome the cool freshness of winter. For those who are less enthusiastic about this season the good news is that the days are now getting longer and we are on our way back to summer delights.
