It is warm here today with lower humidity, and if we had a pool it would be a perfect day to swim. Growing up were fortunate enough to have a pool, and my dad even installed outdoor lights so we could go night swimming. We went through many beach balls over those years, and they probably spent more time out of the pool than in because of my horrible aim. There was nothing like getting ready for the first swim of the year and inflating the beach balls and floats – ahhhhh, I can almost smell the potent chemical odor of colorful plastic beach balls and suntan lotion, well before the era of SPF.
This painting is simply the view from our vacation deck of a beach neighbor’s windsock.
The sun was shining, the wind was gently blowing, the waves and sky were calm, and the scent of salt and sunscreen filled the air. #NatureDoodlewash
