Difficult to believe it's already halfway thru July.
This week I finally made it back to the beach in my old village for a short visit. I'd intended to swim n skip shopping, but my plan changed. Not only was it so windy, but the beach was more crowded than I like. Also I did need to get things at the store for the up-coming work-week, n won't go to the store with wrecked water-hair.
So I only got half-wet, walked around a bit, n headed to the store for errands only to discover most things I wanted were sold out. Luckily the still had my bread, but I'll need a separate trip for sinus pills which I'm out of.
Lately I've noticed I really feel like an outsider around the village these days. The atmosphere seems different n more tourist-y if that is possible. Like everyone in sight has tons of money n the everyday folks I'm used to can't afford to relax there. They aren't at the beach, but all working like crazy.
There were tons of families with children everywhere, all out on summer vacation n as usual I was the only one in a hurry on a limited time schedule. I don't use sunscreen n want to avoid getting burned anyways.
I like this pic of this beach section by the pier alot. Not only is it almost in focus in the windy conditions, but barely anyone is recognizable, plus the hovering seagull is visible. Tough to judge what I'm doing when the strong light makes the screen tough to see. (I don't know any of the folks there).
Hope I get back to the beach again before summer is over...
