Reasons why it must be summer in Malta

1. On April 1 we were sunburnt and by April 10 we are as dark as we usually are at the end of a Canadian summer. (We are now applying sunscreen religiously)

2. Strawberries are in season and the strawberry festival was this weekend.

3. Ellie has a collar tan.

4. We only drive with the top down.

5. Lobster-red British tourists are out in full force, socks, sandals and all.

6. The weather forecast was nothing but little sunny icons for almost two weeks. Of course, we have guests arriving tomorrow which means this week's weather forecast only has one little sunny icon. Figures.
