When I was young, my family would pack up the car and drive to the beach for 2 weeks. We'd drive past small towns and cows grazing in the fields. Would we EVER arrive?
I spent most of my time in the water. I'd lie on my raft and catch the waves. Oh the thrill of riding a big one in! Of course building sand castles or rolling in the sand was fun, too.
Diving under the waves or just floating in the cool salt water are great ways to spend time. See my silly Dad doing a handstand?!
After a long day at the beach, we'd walk back to our cottage past beautiful blue hydrangea bushes. My Dad would hose the sand off me and my brother before we were allowed inside.
Sometimes in the evenings we'd walk the boardwalk and eat ice cream cones.What wonderful family memories these are!
See my post Summertime....back in the day....
This is for the etsy bloggers street team carnival hosted by Rose Works Jewelry. Be sure to check out her blog after July 31 when she will publish all the etsy bloggers' submissions.
Addendum: We went to Cape Cod, Massachusetts; Cape May, New Jersey; Cockey's Farm; and Mildred's and Earl's Farm, the latter 2 on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, USA. In the Summertime post linked above, there are photos from the farms.
