I like the beginning of summer the most. I was trying to find pricing information about the cute blue skirt but all I could get was the comment section. The computer is being very finicky this afternoon!

My favourite thing about summer is the (admittedly rare, here, at least) clear sunny day when you can sit by the ocean and breathe in the sea air with all its wonderful sea smells; listening to the gulls complaining and sometimes being rewarded with an awe inspiring visit by whales, feeding in the bay. Sigh….

Summer…hmm. Ironically, I live at the beach and haven’t been there in about 12 years. I am a winter person as I am severely allergic to the ultra violet sun rays and burn very quickly. Summer brings heat and humidity so I love fall and winter. But I do love the days you can open the window and let in fresh air or sitting on the balcony and watching the sun rise while sipping a cup of coffee. Oh and no coats so that’s a plus.
