When I was a small child summertimes were glorious. Sun-drenched warm days were spent idly playing with toys, exploring the backyard with my brother, playing with neighborhood kids, riding in the car over the"bumpy way" to eat ice cream with my cousins. Long days melted into cool summer nights alight with fireflies and soft breezes.
My mother and father would pack up the car for a 2 week vacation, first at a farm on the bay, then the beach. There I spent many happy hours rolling in the sand and floating in the water wearing a "ring." I loved the salt water, riding the waves, playing in the sand, just being outdoors.
2 water babies: I am 3 ½ and my brother is 1 ½ in the photos below. In the other 2 photos, I'm 6 ½.
