Isn’t it supposed to be winter?

I took a walk down to the Pier over lunch time as it is a beautiful day outside.  Not just a typical beautiful winters day, but a warm one to boot as well.  Plus it is still school holidays so there are lots of people around strolling along the boardwalk, on the pier and even sitting on the beach.  There were even people having a swim.  Pffft, what winter?
