when we go to the beach on a holiday Monday.
That's the tip of her scarf, blowing in the breeze as she books on down to the water.
The Brothers went to school today, much to their distress, but Sophie had off.
She had been inside all weekend, fighting a cold virus. It was brutally hot, too. Today was glorious in Santa Monica.
Not a day goes by that I'm not grateful to live out here. Truly.
Great photos! Thank goodness the heat has broken, what a relief!ReplyDelete
So lucky. Truly helps the mind and body to step outside, nearly everyday, and soak in the warmth of the sun.ReplyDelete
So hoping that this heatwave is done for good.
Oh, that beach!ReplyDelete
Lucky girls, to have a day when the boys are at work and school. Glad you enjoyed yourselves.
Before I saw your words at the end, I was going to ask, Can you believe that you get to LIVE in that place? With the sunshine, sand, beaches, flowers, mountains and the blue Pacific Ocean & sky? It is mind-bogglingly (I decree, that is a word), staggeringly beautiful. Such a wealth of beauty. I'm thankful that you got to go to the beach with your lovely mermaid, just you two.ReplyDelete
I love that first photo -- mysterious and full of movement. And that beach!ReplyDelete
Oh, lovely! A mermaid requires water!ReplyDelete
Sophie really is a mermaid. A beautiful one being drawn to the sea.ReplyDelete
I have a similar picture to that first one but it is of Owen, dashing away from my camera, the red boots he is wearing a blur.ReplyDelete
Did you know that I have been to that beach? I have, Elizabeth! A long time ago. I put it in the novel I wrote.
I'm so glad that you take the time to take your mermaid to the beach. I know it can't be easy but you do it and then you share and we all get to benefit. So thank you.
sophie: the triangle of color shimmering in your peripheral vision, probably always, i'd say. lovely, elizabeth.ReplyDelete
Mermaid Sophie has a beautiful spirit. I love these photos of her.ReplyDelete
Mrs Moon is correct when she says you share and we all get to benefit. So I thank you and say I'm glad I called in today to catch up on all your happenings:) And hey, I've seen that beach but didn't get to walk on it. Next time!ReplyDelete
Love, pamela (england, cold, the end of the end of summer) xxx
Oh! That is my old beach, I love it there, everyone all over the place being themselves. Glad you two were there to enjoy it.ReplyDelete
You make me miss CA! Sophie looks gorgeous! A real mermaid...with mystical eyes.ReplyDelete
Looks like a wonderful time. I'd kill for a beach right now!ReplyDelete
I miss the beach!!!!!! It looks like an absolutely lovely day!ReplyDelete
I have dreams of the waterReplyDelete
and the other morning I woke up with a lingering thought that I MUST keep my bathing suit in my purse just in case I'm ever at the beach
I'm glad Sophie has it so close by - what a blessing
sophie always looks as if she is in her true element, there.ReplyDelete
Beautiful....but where's the surfer dudes?ReplyDelete
