night beaching, 8.23

Steven and I have spent a lot of time this summer on the beach at night; particularly under the path of planes headed in and out of Logan at Winthrop Beach, where we snapped this photo of my feet and shadow on Tuesday night.

I’ll miss these when the weather turns…

venice beach, 7.1

A few weeks back, I was in Los Angeles for a work trip and spent any free moment I had walking Venice Beach, dipping into the Pacific, and generally obsessing over how I might be able to parlay a beach bum career.

Or, at least to travel more.

beach crochet, 6.21

r.r. has been asking me to teach her the basics of crochet for a few weeks and I finally got the opportunity to get her started at Good Harbor Beach in Gloucester on Tuesday (though she’s an artist and crafter who by nature, doesn’t really need help in  this arena…).

Celebration, you know, on the official start of summer…it was definitely a “10” day, and r.r. being the amazing lady she is, brought along incredible snacks that included roast beets and blueberries.

I brought chips and coke, naturally. Honestly, its a beautiful thing drinking a coke on the beach. Try it; in the meantime, you can check out r.r.’s snaps from our beach trip (which includes an awful shot of my tawny thighs…its too early in the season for that r.r.!).

Sands of time…

With all this constant rain in Boston, it’s pretty simple to wish for mere days ago, when I was sopping up sunny skies, sand, mojitos, and copious amounts of delicious crab.

Here are a few of the delicious snaps of the consuming that went on.
