I decorate in costal items in Summertime
they make a visual connection
with our family’s favorite memories.
We have vacationed in the same small island every summer
for 30 years. Sea Isle City is a wonderful place for families to spend weeks
together in the summer.
Normally, my whole family gathers
in a very large Beach House
to reconnect for a week of fun and sun. We cook,
watch DVDs, play Board Games, Surf the Waves,
and Sun Bathe together in a relaxed,
unhurried atmosphere. Although we have
not gathered at the Beach for the past 3 years
as a family due to health issues of my parents,
I love bringing the memory of a touch of the Sea into the home
to remember those precious times.
