Beachy Keen Jellybean!

I've another roll of film trundling around here somewhere, but in the meantime here are a few favorites from my vacation to the beach last week! It already seems like ages ago, but I don't really want to be anywhere but home and burrowing into my own bed instead of into the sand.

(Picture taken by John)

My typical beach outfit. A large hat, a t-shirt or cotton cardigan, and occasionally a skirt if we're walking to the snack bar or if my legs are getting particularly freckly. The poor hat ended up being the floppiest thing by the end of the third day, the salt air wilted it, and I relinquished it for a straw cloche for the rest of the week.



The first day we were there, the water was warm, just calm enough to hang out in the froth, and the perfect blue-y green shade. But it was not to last, and it all got moody and grey. Which ended up being fine, although I ended up staying out of the water for the most part. A bit too churn-y and wild for my tastes, but I've got pocketfuls of broken shells to account for my time.

  1. Kind of a shame about the weather. The beach gets sort of sinister and changeable when the weather gets like that.

  4. The hat still looks great, even floppy. Sucks about the weather, it's not nice when you go to the beach and it's awful and grey.

  6. That sounds like a nice time. Sometimes it's great just to sit and relax at the beach, even if you're not swimming much.
