villa mecklin

i’m not sure that i’m sold on the design of this house, but i’m certainly envious of that huge deck – i can definitely imagine spending hours lazing about, catching some rays and watching the water. great party potential, too. notice the fire-pit that disappears into the floor during the day…

water wheel

as a kid one of my favourite things in my parent’s display shelf (you know, that place where they put all the strange odds and ends collected throughout a lifetime) was this fake shell belonging to my grandmother, that contained a japanese bonsai garden with a little house and a watermill that actually turned.

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.

amalfi

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

i do realise that’s two italian summery posts in the space of 2 days – but i’m craving warm weather!
