I grew up on an island, so the sea is deeply entrenched in my childhood memories. In summer especially, we would spend time at the seaside, paddling, hunting in rock-pools, eating dilisc seaweed or periwinkles and even swimming in warm summer rain. So, the idea of summer is inextricably linked with the sea. Even though this shot is not mine, it captures a moment that sums up my perfect summer feeling. How I wish I were in that moment!
