Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer

29 May




It brings Coppertone Water Babies Sunscreen SPF 50.

It brings grid-lock traffic on Pacific Coast Highway as you try to get to the beach.

It brings record heat of 103 degrees Farenheit.

It brings “Are we there yet?” at the most inopportune time.

It brings parking lot rage as you get to parking space 344 and the bitch in the Denali cuts into the lane and steals your parking space.

It brings large umbrellas, chairs, plastic buckets, shovels, rakes, sifters, duckies, starfish, seahorses, crabs, bulldozers, dump trucks, diggers, and beach balls constantly slipping out of your sweaty arms as you trudge across the hot white sand with two kids.

It makes you wish you had bought a little red wagon.

It brings out not-so-good-looking people wearing inappropriately tight suits with the word Juicy on it, exposing body parts that need to stay hidden.

However, once you get to your spot and set up camp on the beach … it brings you peace, smiles, and Kodak moments.
