Blue sky joy

We’re still at the charming cottage with the garden sloping down to the sea

And a private jetty inviting us to swim.

Swim 1

Each morning starts with a jump of joy

Under the blue jay skies of summer.

The day rushes by quickly when you’re having fun in the water.


(I only have a slow Internet connection so won’t be around much to visit you. Hope you’ll understand why!)

For more joy, please visit: Skywatch.
