It wasn’t the worst of winters, but I still missed the ocean SO much. I snuck away this week and spent a day down at the shore. The sand was cold and the water was only 58 degrees, but i spent some time reading and writing. Ran on the boardwalk too. So peaceful.
I always walk away from summer kicking and screaming. The weather was off to a rocky start this season so I did my best to make up for it with as many trips to the pool and beach as possible. I enjoyed the local outdoor concerts under the stars, hanging with friends on the patio, cackling over David Sedaris' "Calypso", taking an inspiring online class and finally-riding a 6ft inflatable alligator in the ocean. That was an unexpected post Labor Day purchase down in Spring Lake. Yes, I am seven.
Summer rocks! I practically live outside. Ask the squirrels! I've been enjoying plein air painting in the gardens in my town, going to the pool, writing, reading lots of books, beaching it, outdoor concerts and laughing with my friends. ( they rock too! ) Hope all of you are enjoying your summer as well!!!
There will always be a special place in my heart for Lovey Bunny-my "first born" picture book. Saw this little sweetheart down at the beach over the weekend. So adorable!
