This makes me happy: Sitting on a quilt on the beach, watching my children splash in the water, and feeling the sand slip between my fingers.
I have thousands of photos on my computer. And I keep adding to them.
So, occasionally, I forget about one I’ve taken. While deleting some old ones that have no sentimental or aesthetic value, I came across this one.
And in this middle of another long Canadian winter, it brings summer back to me for a moment.
Sometimes, one outing provides for many memorable moments…
A fall day so warm the afternoon was spent at the beach.
One of the fish my children tearfully rescued from the sand bars.
A pretty patterned crab in the shallow water.
My children at play.
Being able to walk barefoot on the sandbars in October – this is a gift.
