Hot Summer Days..


Hot. Running across the sand Hot. Dry your hair in the sun Hot. Steamy windows in the cottage Hot.

Fresh. Sweet corn Fresh. Mornings of warm dew Fresh. Shrimp boats arriving in the harbor Fresh.

Lazy. Sleeping in the hammock Lazy. Watching sunsets on the Pizer Lazy. Watching the clouds roll by Lazy

Fourth of July
First Firefly
My Birthday
Brown as a Berry
Freckled Noses
