a random bit of beach …

We have grabbed the warmer temperatures and not-rainy days to spend some time on our favourite island beach.

My grandfather, source of warmth and mirth and generous affection, was a geologist. I loved him and all the rocky artifacts displayed all over their home. And I blame him and feel happy when my kids pile me with rocky love gifts whenever we are at the beach.

… due in the Fall. The house is vibrating with excitement and anticipation.
And I stand amazed that I have this privilege again. Never thought I would.

One thing I appreciate about island living is that kids still play outside. Climb trees, tramp in the forest, build forts, rafts, see-saws … Here you’ll see a bit more of it.

 Looking forward to the end of ‘school’ (the official part of it, that is).
And loooong late beach evenings.
