There is little I'd rather do these days than sit on the sand and watch the boys build and discover new things. Yesterday a jellyfish was spotted and many bright green pieces of seaweed were buried in sand pits.
It feels settled now. The summer has surrounded us, made us slightly tired and brown-skinned from sunshine. The travel was so good but did not manage to get us to that place.
I am grateful that the season has sunk in.
I am grateful that a few days of rain took the edge off the brittle grass and parched trees.
Ever grateful, berry eating, long summer days.
