Those ocean blue skies

Waves soothe and tickle my heart

My parasol day.

 

*********************

As I sat under my parasol yesterday at Ogunquit Beach in Maine,

I was struck so many times

by how very, very blessed I was to be enjoying such a day.

It was hot but there was a glorious sea breeze.

The water was an unusual 70 degrees and a delight to swim in.

I was with some dear friends,

and I was free to do whatever I wanted!

It was a truly joy-filled day.

I am so grateful to live so close to the ocean and all its treats !

Thanks to Suzanne and Nathalie for sharing their beach day with me.

 

I hope your weekend is full of joyous treats, Beautiful Ones !

Big love !

Hi Kim
I almost felt envy...
it's been sooo looong since I was near the water.
But then I saw all of the others,
so many people!
I am just happy for my own backyard.
And solitude.
You are so beautiful!
♥♥♥

I am so happy that you had a glorious beach day. Your haiku speaks of soothing your heart, but the photo tells me your being was soothed by the visit to the ever powerful water.

Much Peace

I imagine that there is just a small window of time when one can enjoy summer at the beach in Maine! What a delightful treat!!!

i love the way your umbrella kissed the sky mirroring a pool of splendid blue!
the way you found joy in each unfolding moment,
with friends by the sea.

and the way you are so generous
to always give to us what is given to you!

Something about the sea breeze that blows all cares away. Don't ya love the feeling of sand in your toes?

I love the beach also. But early morning when it's just me and the gulls....or evening near sunset when lovers walk hand in hand.

I was doing the same with my arty bunch and I could not believe the ocean and the need for shade. Looks like you had it covered perfectly. xox

Call me crazy but now I have The Hollies' "Bus stop, bus stop under my umbrella" dancing through my head.
