Summer Fling

                                      Oh, summer days beside the joyous sea.
                                     Caribbean Blue.                               
                                     Here comes summer! These pictures make me long for summer.
                                     Don't you just love it? I know I do.   
                                     For me, summer brings more than just a good tan.
                                     I often take time over the summer to read lists of books I may not
                                     ordinarily seek out.

                                     Don't you love to sit in the shade and read away in the summer?
                                     The summer heat seems to melt away inhibitions.
                                     We allow ourselves to wander and enjoy simple things like
                                     summer movies, nature walks, hanging out with friends, going to
                                     the beach, having picnics.
                                     Beautiful beaches, soft, white sandy landscapes kissed by
                                     turquoise crystal waters...
                                     The beach has so been on my brain lately; as soon as the weather
                                     balances I'm off for a visit. xx

Mmmm I have to close my eyes and pretend I'm on some Greek islands right now :) Good to have you back! :)

Lynda Young said...

Those photos are so lush. I love the colours :)

SquirrelQueen said...

Gorgeous, I could spend some time there with no cares at all. After seeing this beautiful beach I am wondering why we will be spending the coming week in Idaho and Montana. I love the mountains too.

Have a wonderful week,
Judy

OMG girlfriend- these are some GORGEOUS photos and makes me wish I could be there right now! I am so longing for a tropical or even a nice beach vacation and thankfully I get to enjoy one the first week of August - though it won't be at someplace like the Greek Islands - LOL Hope you had a great weekend! I've missed you! :o) Big hugs my friend! :o)

Lynette said...

What is not to love about summer...my favorite time of the year.

Misalyn said...

I love all the photos, blue sky, blue and inviting beach....ahhh summer. I love beaches, skies and clouds. Back home, I would definitely spend my weekends with kids in the beach but here in UAE, I''d rather stay inside my room. The current climatic condition here in the UAE is totally unbearable.

Have a nice day Betty dear.

Now you're starting to make me yearn to go back to sea. But that is a good thing.

Naturedigital said...

Beautiful photographs Betty. You make us all dream of the coming summer..
Made me go look for the books I want to have with me on the beach, under the shade, and try to find my swimming trunks too.
Have a great evening Betty.

Looks beautiful but I just know I'd only complain I was too hot, go bright red and, if not careful, burn.

Unknown Mami said...

Those blues, those beautiful blues!

Nevine said...

Oh, Betty! I am so inside that water! I am so inside it and bubbles are all around me and my body is wet and slippery and cool and I'm swimming and floating and dreaming... and loving it! What glorious photos! Thank you for sharing them. Yes, I do so long for summer.

Big hugs,
Nevine

I am SO there! Even after spending the winter in AZ, I could use a warm up from driving through the Montana snowy, wintering roads on our way back home!

Joe Cap said...

If that was a vacation you have taken, since I think you took the pics, it looks like you had an awesome time. I love the ocean, especially the Carribean.
