Snapshot: Summer 4



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!

Thanks for including me in this series Lori!

Great photo and I love what you wrote, Jane. You have to see "The Beaches of Agnes." She's got that same love of beaches as you and, I know, it is cheesy to reference your own blog, but I just loved that movie and wrote a post about it:

Beautiful, Jane. What I wouldn't give to be there right now!

I love this choice! And I'm impressed that Jane eats seaweed straight from the sea! Thank you, Jane and Lori.

Great choice. The sun reflecting in the sea is the essence of summer to me.

Such a beautiful image-- it does look like summer, and I loved reading of its significance to Jane.
