Summer Heat

Weather reports predicted 90 degrees for our nature study day today. Enough heat to sway our plans to meet up at the botanical preserve. So some of us headed to a more shady trail while we opted for the beach. Having been the first week of summer heat after a long bout of June gloom, the beach was packed.

The little ones played with sand and buckets of water, ever entertaining.

The older ones strapped on their boogie boards and headed for the surf.


What a ride!

this helicopter passed by for all to see, heading south, probably to Camp Pendleton.

It was a beautiful summer day.

What are heavy? sea-sand and sorrow:
What are brief? to-day and to-morrow:
What are frail? Spring blossoms and youth:
What are deep? the ocean and truth.

~Christina Rosetti

  1. What a great day to be able to spend with great friends. I just love the poem you chose by Christina Rossetti.
