Paint me lilac

I love it when the sun sets

In dramatic purple hues

Or in soft, lilac tones.

(As you can see, the little sauna house

Is now docked next to the jetty

Leaving the beach and its views free again.)

    I love that you include your pooches in many of your photos.
    So, who owns the sauna? It just struck me that it is a “portable” sauna.
