Water, water...

Water, thou hast no taste, no color, no odor;

canst not be defined,
art relished while ever mysterious.

Not necessary to life, but rather life itself,

...thou fillest us with a gratification that exceeds the
delight of the senses.
~~Antoine de Saint-Exupery,
Wind, Sand, and Stars, 1939

Looks like a Zap board.

Take good care,

Karen

Dimple said...

Fun shots, Becky! I love the last, though...the board is better than a towel, I think!

Beautiful photos today...
Counting the days until I am doing this...not surfing, but standing in the Atlantic waves.

I just discovered your lovely blog and I look forward to popping by again for some more inspiration! I've just put the finished touches on my new blog ‘Coastal Style’ It will have lots of inspiration on beach houses, resortwear, summer food, travel and anything ‘beachy’. I had a lot of fun putting it together so maybe you would like to check it out if you have a spare minute.

How is your summer going?

Clicked over here and was about to begin apologizing for being really behind on my blog reading--because I've been at the beach! I had one of those days that stretched out into the evening and saw some of those same spectacular colors. Man, oh, man I love me some beach!

I tried surfing once. Couldn't even get up on my knees, further more stand up. I can appreciate the exhaustion.
