It’s summer somewhere else in the world, while typhoon season has begun in the Philippines.
While it’s humid and there is more threat of rain, I am dreaming of warm summer days, spent at the beach – doing nothing but soaking up the sun while floating in clear turquoise waters and hoping for more summer days like this.
The photo was taken at a beach vacation a couple of summers pasts; at a sand bar off the coast of Sagay City, Negros Occidental, Philippines. The sand bar is literally a strip of white sand shoal in the middle of the sea, with native bamboo and nipa sheds/huts and a lookout “tower”. People come for a day to enjoy the clear blue waters, and soak up the sun, and have a picnic. This was a drive by shot of my mother, which was taken while she was taking a walk at the tip of the sand bar and I was on an outrigger passing by.
So while summer is but a memory for me, summer is just starting for someone else in another part of the world. Here’s to summer and more summer days.
