memories

i’m on holiday for a wee while. just over 3 weeks to be exact, boom! i won’t be on the computer much (or at all, hopefully) – but i have set up some posts to go off like clockwork around here. so, to keep going with the summer / holiday spirit…. here are some lovely old beach pics for you:

boogie woogie board

my mom snapped these in the late afternoon at kogel bay – bear in mind that they were taken from the coastal road above the beach – if you have ever been to kogel bay you’ll know how far away that is. love this sequence & the sunset light on the water.

if i ever have a lovely little beach house to decorate, these prints would slipstream right in there – by wayne pate

i want to go to there. these pictures makes me think: is it ever, ever going to be warm again? i’ll be cursing myself when it’s 38°C – but i’m throwing caution to the wind! come on, weather gods. pics from samokhvalov

from a trip to italy, 2003. i remember it being reported as the hottest italian summer in decades – that water was heaven.
