Beach day

 

The return of warm weather. It felt like it was never going to come. We are back at the beach attempting to frolic in too-cold water on a beach that lost half of its area thanks to rising water levels. It is glorious in so many ways.

Sisters collaborating on an engineering project while the sun begins to cure the winter paleness from their skin. One sister drilling into the sand with all of her might, the other sculpting the sides into an engineered smoothness Jony Ive would approve of. First bathing suit lines of the year followed by first ice creams. Smiles everywhere.

After a winter that felt like a perpetual night on the couch it was refreshing to see that my family still knew how to do summer right. Beach. Conquered.
