I’m still in Spain.
Just checking in to say hi and send some sparkles your way.
Back next week!
(Photo from Portugal last year.)
Sizzling orange, a glowing setting sun —
That’s when the sky romances the earth
With its beauty.

The beach at Baleal, Portugal, is covered in dunes
That are environmentally protected.
One evening, I went out at sunset
To see the dunes rising against the sky
Like the humps of camels
While the sun burst forth
In wonderful windows of light.

We’re still at the charming cottage with the garden sloping down to the sea
And a private jetty inviting us to swim.
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!)

Nothing much has been happening,
But as I look back at some summer memories
I realize that moments when we have taken the time to pause,
To enjoy, to reflect and to learn —
These are the moments that make up our lives.
Life is for learning – but one’s learning must then be lived. Yusuf/Cat Stevens

A day out at the beach
Can fill you with joy
And teach you that you need to make time for rest —
And space for play and imagination.
Even when stripped down to the bare bones,
We still have a rusty beauty.
At the end of the day,
It is enough simply to be,
And to be who we are.

A boy and his father
Enjoying a day by the sea.
On the immense canvas of the sky.

I’m away in the UK. Wishing you all stunning skies and sunny days!
The summer cottage that we have hired for six months was drenched in sun.
(Perhaps I should just clarify that Oscar is looking for his Kong!)
So imagine our surprise when we went to the little beach and discovered big blocks of ice still floating in the bay.
But that didn’t stop Oscar, the dog, from taking the plunge
And shaking icy rainbows of joy all over us.
No need to ask if the water is cold.
We move to the jetty to enjoy the sun and the view.
Oh oh – here he comes again!
Hope you all had a lovely holiday!

More skies from England. The Sussex coast.
I love the way the shabby beach huts
Give the tinted clouds a splendour
That trickles down as warm honey onto the pebbles.
I love the way the immense clouds of silver plate
Can make me feel as small as a tiny boat
In the palm of the world
And turn the sea to icy green.
I love the way the pearly clouds, the smooth pebbles,
The loving curve of the rocky promontory
Can be as vulnerable and tender
As a small boy and his father
Sharing sea-filled dreams.
