Seeing as it's August and meant to be summer (we've had torrential rain here today) I started thinking about summers gone by.
I remember the sun shining for what seemed like the whole of the school holidays. I remember us heading off to the beach early in the morning and having sights like this greeting us:
I love spending time at the beach no matter what the weather but those lazy days of summer were special. Small clouds passed over head like people drifting in the sea on lilos. When dozing on the sand the breaking of the waves sounded distant, everything seemed so relaxed.
During the day we'd go for a wander around the town:
I always loved walking around harbours looking at the boats, seeing the fisherman examine their catches.
I always dreamed of living somewhere like this no matter if the sun is shining, the wind howling or the rain pounding down.
I remember spending so much time in the sea during those lazy summer days, playing games on the sand, people watching. I remember leaving at the end of the day and hoping I'd be returning soon.
I wonder now if the weather has changed the summer or if it's the pressures of being a home owning adult that make those bygone days seem more relaxing.
We've all got a story in us so head over to Sian's at From High In The Sky and tell yours.
I hope you're having a great weekend.
