The Colours of Summer

So here we are, post-Solstice, and no matter what the weather might do, it’s summer. I know it is, cos every beach-front store has a bright display of beach toys.

      I was undecided which photo to use for this title. Last week in Southwold I took several suitable. But once on the laptop, it came down to this one, or one of a beach umbrella and canvas windbreak on the beach, The umbrella was pretty but pastel-coloured. So this one won.

    This is one of the things I miss, living in southern CA — things being tied to seasons. It must be summer because… women are wearing boots with their skirts? It must be winter because… people are wearing sleeveless shirts and no jackets? Sigh. It must be spring because… half the flowering plants have already bloomed and died? We don’t even have “fire season” anymore, since now fire season is all year ’round.

    Few pictures make me laugh. This is one of them.
    It could be for some profound reason, like an Oedipal complex(?), or it just makes me think of happy beach days.

      Well, I hope it’s the latter. I do admit buckets and spades make me smile,. My brother and I, me preschool, he a year and a bit older, had found a magnificent but deserted sand castle, obviously crafted by a talented adult, and claimed it as ours. My father, quick-thinking, took the photo. I don’t remember the event. If it weren’t for the photo the day would be lost. But oh boy, was that a magnificent castle.
