We are in the middle of a heat wave.
Well, hot for us northerners, that is. Until this week, the temps were still
dropping down into the 40's and 50's at night. Perfect for me.
This week the temps have been in the 80-90 range and staying warm all night.
It's time to head to the beach!
When summertime rolls around, I replace my 7up egg crate with this display.
I painted the green beach sign years ago.
The weathered wood screen is a new find this year.
It was only $2 at a local antique store!
The flamingo only comes out to play for our few short months of summer.
I've never seen one in these parts, but I did see a pelican on a local
lake a few weeks ago! I needed a little help identifying it.
I thought it was a stork. Well, it looked like the bird who delivers babies. :@
I've had the small metal chair forever. I bought it at a souvenir shop on one of our summer vacations.
The pint size fishing rod is actually for ice fishing, but it's the right size, so it stays.
Our small town held its Jubilee Parade yesterday, so there were people everywhere.
After the parade there's a street dance with live music in 3 locations, so you can
listen to your music of choice.
Today, all is quiet.
Most of the locals head to their lake cabins, or to the public beaches too cool off.
On my early morning walk I saw one of our neighbors outside.
She's obviously getting ready for her beach debut.
You should see what she wears during the Christmas season!
She gets her Nancy Sinatra on with a Santa suit minus the pants.
And a pair of tall black go go boots.
Thanks for visiting and try to keep cool!
