Bushed Holiday

kruger

guys, i’m bushed.  i don’t know what it is about the easter holiday – but every time it swings around i am always just so ready for it. i guess it’s also the fact that come next month we’ll be a third a way through the year. what! it also marks the official changing of the seasons around here, it’s been hot hot hot since… forever. i can’t remember the last time it was cold. and easter weekend almost always brings in a cold front that finally breaks summer.

welcome beyond

welcome beyond is a website “showcasing the most beautiful and unique vacation homes & boutique hotels around the world” or “hand-picked paradise” – as they put it. well, that’s handy.

i didn’t take a lot of photos this holiday because i was either eating, reading, drinking, eating, lying in the sun, snoozing, eating, drinking, walking on the beach, riding my bike, eating, napping etc etc. you know? but i did wander onto the beach one evening before sunset to take these shots. the sky really was all pink & blue! maaagical.

holy moly, it’s only 18 odd days and then my SUMMER HOLIDAY starts. today i’m reflecting on summer holidays of old, 99.9% of the time spent by the sea (where else?). our family haunts were:
