Happy July 1st!

Nothing says summer like the ocean and the beach!

It is amazing to me that it is already the first day of July!  Our summer is flying by.  We are having a blast and are quite busy, so that is why I haven’t been writing as much.

How is your summer going?  Is it hot and humid where you live?  Or is it cool?  Or wet?  There seem to be many kinds of weather this summer that we don’t normally see.

We have had quite a bit of rain, strong thunderstorms, and lightning. Thankfully no flooding as in some parts of the country.  And no fires.  I realize how blessed we really are for that.  My prayers go out to all of those who have suffered losses.

The air is often very humid in the summer where I live.  So it feels sticky anytime that you go outside.  After living in the same state throughout my entire life, you’d think I was used to that.  But, I am not.

We have had a recent break in that humidity and it has been so nice.  On a recent lunch out, we had a pleasant meal on the deck of the restaurant.  There was even a nice breeze.

That is how the weather is in the summer at Mission Beach, CA.  The above picture is of the ocean there.  I just love that beach and the Pacific Ocean!  It is a place I love to visit.  Thankfully we are going there this summer and I am so looking forward to it!

Nothing says summer to me like a trip to the beach!  How about you?

Some of my favorite things at the beach we visit are:

  • The blue of the ocean
  • The ocean breeze
  • The beach house
  • The front porch with table and benches
  • The feel of the sand in my toes
  • The majesty of the ocean
  • The movement of the waves
  • The boardwalk
  • The sea wall where we watch sunsets
  • The fish taco shop
  • The fun with friends and family
  • The bead store where lovely creations are made
  • The trips to Trader Joes
  • The long walks
  • The pier and nearby restaurants
  • The hope of seeing a green flash as the sun sets
  • The many memories

I wonder if the rest of our summer will be as much fun as the first half was?  I think that it will be.  I am certainly looking forward to it.
